Tuna-less Tuna

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

1 shallot

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.
