“Tuna” Salad (Vegan)

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.

Raw "tuna"(in the picture, it’s served with Raw bread.)

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.

  1. Alice,

    I made this tuna recipe today and it is DELICIOUS! I am SOOOO excited to have “tuna” back.

    I barely browned a brown rice tortilla (Trader Joes) on both sides and then put spinach, tomatoes, avocado, the “tuna”, and rolled it up. It made a GREAT lunch…(Tuna roll 🙂

    I even took it to my daughters home who are on the “high protein” diet and she loved it. She said she actually likes it better than tuna.

    Thanks SO much for sharing this recipe with us!
