Vegan Tuna Mayo
In my experience, this recipe has fooled tuna lovers into believing that it is the real thing. It has the same taste and texture, but it has none of the toxic heavy metals and industrial pollutants, etc. that bio-magnify up the food chain. It goes great with a jacket potato and is perfect as a sandwich filling.
1 can chickpeas drained and rinsed
1 tbsp nori flakes or ½ nori sheet, cut into small pieces
1 tbsp tamari
2 tbsp lemon juice
100g silken tofu
½ tsp wholegrain mustard
1 tbsp cashew butter
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
¼ garlic clove
½ red onion, chopped
40g cooked corn
Salt and pepper to taste
Place the chickpeas, nori, tamari, ½ the lemon, salt and pepper in a food processor and combine until almost smooth (you may need to periodically scrape the sides down.)
Place this ‘tuna’ into a bowl.
For the mayo add the tofu, remaining lemon juice, mustard, cashew butter, apple cider vinegar and garlic to a blender and combine until smooth.
Pour the mayo over the ‘tuna’ and combine.
Add in the onion and corn and give it a final mix.
Serve and enjoy!
