It’s amazing how much this tastes like the real thing, in fact my kids prefer this over real tuna. Great thing is you are getting your raw protein and essential fatty acids from the sunflower seeds. This recipe is mostly raw except for the mayo. Soaking the nuts overnight should be enough, but if you’d like to sprout them longer, make sure you change the water regularly.
1 cup soaked sunflower seeds
1/4 c. vegan mayo
1 stalk of celery finely chopped
1 pickle finely chopped
juice of 1/2 lemon, or to taste
1 stalk green onion
1 Tbs. of tamari or nama shoyu
pinch of ground black pepper
Put the soaked seeds, lemon juice, mayo, tamari and black pepper in the food processor and mix it until a tuna like texture is achieved. Taste it to adjust the flavor if needed. Transfer it to a bowl and add the chopped veggies and green onion, mix well and you are done! You can use this in sandwiches, in salads and nori wraps.
