But as creative as we vegans are, we’ve found a solution to yet another problem, now just for the supermarkets to catch on, really.
For now, use vegans are standing strong, and forever astounding the skeptics with our creative solutions to commonly eaten foods.
How to veganise tuna
It’s easy, first you need the bulk of it, which in this instance we’d use canned chickpeas, mashed, preferably with a fork to make it flakey.
Next we need the acidity, this is is what we’d get from lemon juice, simply squeeze half a lemon in there.
Then we need the hint of sea taste, which we get from nori. Voila, veganised tuna, or “choona”.
This recipe is a life saver. At first, I know, you’d think: chickpeas? In a sandwich? But I’m here to tell you it really does work, very well at that!
This is a perfect solution for if you needed a quick vegan sandwich filler for a party or for a picnic. An easy work lunch, packed lunch or snack throughout the week.
