Last weekend I stumbled upon this vegan tuna in a package. I was intrigued. When I ate meat, I would occasionally crave tuna sandwiches – it was rare as I was never a seafood fan but it was a quirky craving. I picked up the packet and then funny enough I must’ve ordered one (it was different flavor) from Thrive market as well. So today I wanted to share my go-to recipe for how I used to make tuna but now am enjoying using this awesome vegan product instead.
As a side note, I found this on Thrive Market however a local grocery store also had it. I also found it on Amazon here. *This is an affiliate link that provides a small commission.
1 packet of this vegan tuna
1 tbl vegan mayo
1 tbl Dijon mustard
1/2 avocado, mashed
1 stalk of celery, finely chopped
1/4 cup of red onion, finely chopped
2 tbl of pickled jalapenos
4 mini dill pickles or 1 medium, finely chopped
2 tsp smoked paprika
Freshly cracked pepper
Into a bowl, add your mayo, mustard and avocado. Mash and combine well. Then add your remaining ingredients and mash and blend well. Adjust seasoning as you desire. I did top with red chili flakes but we like spicy!
Serve this on my salad or on a crusty roll that’s been toasted. Enjoy!
