Chuna Sweetcorn Baked Potato


  • 2 Large Potatoes
  • 1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil

For the Chickpea 'Tuna' Sweetcorn:

  • 1 Tin of Chickpeas (240g Drained Weight)
  • 1 Celery Stalk
  • 3 Spring Onions
  • Handful of Cornichons Pickles
  • 2 Tablespoons of Capers
  • 100g of Sweetcorn
  • 3 Tablespoons of Vegan Mayo
  • 1 Teaspoon of Dijon Mustard
  • 2 Teaspoons of Red Wine Vinegar
  • Sea Salt & Pepper

This is such a clever twist on the classic lunch time favourite. The chickpea ‘tuna’ sweetcorn is so quick and simple- it’s also gorgeous with pasta.

Preheat the oven to 200’C.

Use your hands to rub olive oil all over the potatoes. Place them on a roasting tray and sprinkle well with salt and pepper. Bake for about 50-60 minutes until tender on the inside and crispy on the outside.

While they’re baking, make the chickpea filling. Drain and rinse the chickpeas and add them to a large bowl.

Mash the chickpeas with a fork.

Finely dice the celery, spring onion and pickles. Add them to the bowl with the chickpeas and capers. Add the sweetcorn too.

In a small bowl, whisk together the vegan mayo, Dijon and vinegar.

Pour the sauce over the chickpeas, season generously with salt and pepper and mix well. Taste it and add a little more vinegar if you like.

Slice open the baked potatoes and pile the filling generously into the middle.

      Hi Catherine, the moussaka recipe is exclusive to the iOS app so it’s not on the website. There are loads of extra recipes added to the app every month!X

    Hi Indy!
    Adore your site (literally go on here every day – I am sure you recognise my IP address at this stage!) Wondering where you bought your Cornichons Pickles from and are there any ‘favourite’ areas in Dublin where you find more unique veg?

    • Indy Power says:

      Hi Sarah, thank you so much that makes me so happy! You can find cornichons in some supermarkets next to the olives, capers etc (I buy the Maille ones). For veg I love Cavistons in Glasthule and Fallon & Byrne in the city centre, both have amazing mushrooms, seasonal and exotic veg. They also have cornichons!x
