If you can make pizza out of cauliflower, why can’t you make “tuna” out of seeds?
Like most other vegan copy-cat recipes (nut cheeses, cream sauces etc). this vegan tuna salad is made from seeds – sunflower seeds.
Once soaked and blended with some ingredients these sunflower seeds transform into very realistic looking tuna.
If you want a “fishy tuna” taste, add half a nori sheet (the seaweed sheets used to make sushi), but to be honest I forgot to add them and whilst the mixture didn’t have a fish taste at all it was delicious. So if you don’t have access to them or don’t want to add them, it’s fine.
Served inside avocados, this vegan tuna salad would make great appetizers. Alternatively you can chop up the avo and add it to the mixture and serve on top of a bed of lettuce.
