The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Raw vegan tuna and mayo combination. I know, sounds like nothing special, right? There are a gajillion raw vegan tuna and mayo combos out there, right?

Well, this raw vegan tuna recipe is different. Let me tell you why.

Before I went raw I was a kinda-vegetarian who also ate seafood. My one weakness as a seafood-eating vegetarian was tuna--especially tuna subs from Subway. In fact, tuna subs have been the #1 thing that I miss most about my old standard American diet!

Lately for some reason I have been really craving a tuna sub. Over the past couple of weeks I've spent a long time thinking about what makes the tuna from Subway so darn delicious, and I have finally come up with my raw vegan tuna and mayo combo that I think rivals Subway's tuna recipe.

What I like about this recipe that I've created is that it really tastes like it's got tuna (salty) and mayo (fatty/oily) all rolled up into one creamy, filling spread.

This recipe is pretty heavy and full of lots of fats and salts, from the coconut butter, nuts, Braggs and nutritional yeast. You'll find that you feel quite full after eating just a bit of this raw vegan tuna and mayo combo. Although this raw vegan tuna and mayo concoction is really easy to make, I don't think I'll be making it very often because it is pretty unhealthy--well, unhealthy as far as raw vegan meals go! But it sure is nice to have something I can turn to when I am really craving those tuna subs!

Also note: In this pic I mixed my final "tuna" mixture with some chopped parsley, that's why it has some green flecks in it :)

Hi Laura-Jane,
Your recipe calls for coconut butter. Would it work without it or possibly coconut oil?
Many thanks!

Hi Laura, Woops, I meant to write "coconut oil" not "coconut butter." Just corrected the recipe. So to answer your question, yes, use coconut oil! And thanks for your question, because it brought my mistake to my attention. Thank you! :)

Thank you! This is a great substitution! I am not a raw food person, although I eat raw foods regularly as a healthy part of my diet. With Fukushima, I was devastated about giving up tuna as they migrate through the radiated water. I gave this a try adding chopped celery, red onion and cucumber to the mix and then served it on spinach and chopped tomato salad. My husband devoured it! My kids thought it was ok, so I made it again without the onion and reduced the Bragg's and they thought it was pretty good too!

This was amazing! I too used to crave tuna fish (truly the only non-vegan thing I wanted after converting.) I haven't had real tuna in years so having this tonight made me feel very guilty because I couldn't tell a difference from when I used to eat it! I had mine on chopped iceberg lettuce, sliced moon red onions, chopped tomato and sprinkled with fresh basil. This was absolutely delicious!!

I loooove this recipe! I have been battling candida also so I use raw coconut aminos because it's soy free and has 65% less sodium than soy sauce. So yummy!

Didn't have any soy sauce so I used miso, still came out great. Next time I'm going to try adding dill, that sounds good.

This came out well-much to my surprise. Although I am not 100% raw vegan, I will use this instead of eating tuna salad!

Hmmm, I think it's a little overpowering - maybe less Braggs... Definitely good start - it's great in a sandwich.

I loved this recipe. Do youbthink it would keep in the fridge for a day or two? Would be great for a work lunch but I never have time in the morning to make it,so would have to be made the night before and ideally enough for a few days. What do you think?

Thank you so much for posting this wonderful recipe. I'm a tuna buff and since recently going vegan, I was looking for a replacement! I was wondering though, if this would work without the nutritional yeast. I've been off yeast for a couple of years due to some health issues, and try not to touch the stuff.

Thanks!

Nutritional yeast is a deactivated yeast, so it won't make things rise and is not a replacement for yeast when baking. It does not cause the same issues inside your body that active yeast does. I have Candida and eat Nutritional Yeast nearly everyday and have not had any issues in over a year. My candida is almost gone eating a raw lifestyle and using nutritional yeast. It really does help with the cheesy flavor. Hope that helps. :)
