This really does remind me of tuna salad, in both texture and appearance! It's quick and easy to make, and great stuffed into romaine lettuce wraps. Very flavorful, but delicately so. Juicy, sweet, and savory, just like tuna salad should be! Great for a snack or light lunch. It's delicious and filling, but not SUPER long-term satisfying, if you're needing something like that. Would make a good appetizer or light tea time snack for small informal gatherings where you just want a light finger food to munch on nonchalantly over conversation.
Don't skimp on the dulse flakes ;)
A fun presentation is to stuff this into tulip blossoms and serve with white rose tea or green marigold tea
This tastes fabulous! Even my non raw mom said she liked it better than regular tuna salad! You can even make sushi rolls with it. I got the recipe from my friend Rashimba who makes it at the Food Co-Op were she works. It can be a totally raw recipe if you make your own raw mayo, but I love the Veganaise.
I personally think that this mimicks the texture of tuna better than any other recipe. I love it so much that it’s my tuna replacement even when I’m not eating raw. Really, the only part of this that’s my own idea is grating the jicama, the rest is up to you. I like it on its own or on a slice of manna bread.
My version of ‘mock’ tuna. I’m not convinced that anyone would mistake it for the real thing, but it’s still quite tasty.
