Oh my yum!!!

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'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)

Yes,Yes, I agree, I love this recipe. I had some fresh dill from the farmers market and it just MADE it! Even my hubby liked it, and he is a hardcore tuna salad fan!

that un-tuna salad looks very tuna like!

Sounds delicious. Especially stuffed into that tomato. I keep meaning to buy some kelp powder or dulse flakes to use for stuff like this, but I always assume its too expensive since I doubt I'd use it for anything else.
