Raw tuna salad recipe
Posted in: Raw Easy Entrees
2 cups sunflower seeds (soaked for at least 1-2 hours)
1 tablespoon (or a bit more) dulse (seaweed) (make sure to wet your dulse first with the lemon juice or apple cider vinegar)
1 clove garlic
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
Chopped raw pickles (optional)
Chopped apples (optional)
1. Soak the nuts in luke-warm water for at least one hour to soften them. Rinse them well and discard all water.
2. Process all of the paste ingredients in a food processor on high until the mixture resembles a very smooth paste. You should not see any nut bits at all. You may need to stop and start and get in there with a spatula.
3. Eat right away or refrigerate to eat later. I prefer to keep the pate separate and I don't add any chunks (onions, celery, etc) until I'm ready to eat.
4. When you're ready to eat, serve your portion in a bowl. Then add some chopped onions, parsley, raw pickles or apples to suit your taste.
5. Enjoy on crackers, on top of a salad, in a nori roll, or more...
The Rawtarian's Thoughts
Raw tuna salad recipes are integral to my raw food recipe arsenal.
I like to eat it with a crisp apple, or this mock tuna pate is great as a salad topper, too. Or how about eating it in a nori roll? The possibilities are endless for this mock raw tuna salad.
I make this raw tuna recipe at least once a week. If you need something to take to work for lunch, try packing some raw crackers, a little tupperware of this tuna spread, and a knife. You'll be good to go. If you want, you can leave the garlic out if you want this to be more breath-friendly. (But it really is better with the garlic.)
The dulse (seaweed) is what gives this recipe its tuna-like taste, so don't bother making it unless you have dulse.
THIS TUNA SALAD RECIPE ABOVE IS PRETTY GOOD, BUT I HAVE ANOTHER DIFFERENT RAW VEGAN TUNA AND MAYO COMBO RIGHT HERE!!
