I was perusing blogs yesterday and found a recipe I couldn't resist trying!
It is a raw recipe meant to approximate/replace/show up tuna salad! I have made several vegan tuna and tuna salad replacements. They have all been fairly good, but none knocked the proverbial socks off. I also have issues with plopping half a jar of Vegenaise into a recipes.
So...I found Oh My This Is A Tuna! It was a major hit at our house, and the bowl was pillaged before the night was done. True love must be Scrabble, saltines, and raw fake tuna salad :P
Here's the recipe. Try it! This recipe is not just for vegans or raw eaters...it's just delicious!
Oh My this is a Tuna! (My adjustments noted)
1 Cup Sunflower Seeds (soaked)
1 Cup Raw Walnuts (soaked)
1/8 Cup fresh squeezed Lemon juice
1/2 Tsp. Garlic (minced)
1/2 Tsp. Kelp flakes (I used dulse flakes. Some nori put through the blender/food processor would work fine too)
2 Tbs. Nama Shoyu (I used regular soy sauce)
Blend/process seeds, nuts, lemon juice, garlic, kelp & Nama Shoyu.
Transfer to bowl and add:
1 pickle chopped
3 Tbs. pickle juice
(I replaced the top two ingredients with pickle relish to taste)
1 Tsp. apple cider vinegar or Ume Plum vinegar (I used acv)
1 Tsp. Herbamare seasoning (I used a little generic seasoning mix instead)
1 Tbs. fresh Dill Weed (chopped) ( I didn't use)
1/4 Cup Onion (chopped)
1/4 Cup chopped Celery
1/8 Cup Parsley (chopped)
