I have been consciously trying to reduce my meat and dairy intake and in the process found this awesome way of turning sunflower seeds into a tuna substitute!
I have adapted my recipe from the wonderful Green Kitchen Stories blog, if you don't follow them already I suggest you do! They share and create wonderful vegetarian meals.
Tuna-less Tuna YO!
1 cup of sunflower seeds, soaked overnight
3 tbsp capers
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp good quality olive oil
1 tsp white wine vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
Simply put all ingredients into a blender or bullet and pulse, add additional salt and pepper to taste. If you aren't vegan and want a little bit of extra creaminess, add a tablespoon of mayo. Great smothered over toast!
For a quick tasty dinner throw in with tomato pasta sauce and spaghetti. Ultimate comfort food.
