Raw Vegan Tuna Salad

Faux Tuna SaladJust to add a little variety to the blog here and to try and one up John Chow’s Fine Dining category occasionally I’ll be posting about one of our healthy recipes whipped up into a special meal made at home. Hey, you have to take a break once in a while from the rigors of affiliate marketing.

We eat a roughly 75 to 80% raw vegan diet, not because we are into saving the whales or anything like that, we’re into plant based food because it is bursting with nutrition and extremely good for you. It is the fuel for your body.

Okay, enough preachy stuff.

First up is this past Monday’s lunch made by my lovely wife Jean. It is our faux tuna salad recipe from our Healthy Diet website. Yes, it really tastes like tuna, but it’s made from a combination of soaked sunflower seeds, soaked almonds, celery and just the right amount of spices such as garlic, dill, lemon juice and other ingredients to get a tuna taste.

The lettuce and scallions you see under and on the salad are from our garden we just started. We don’t use any pesticides on the garden, but use marigolds to ward off some insects because they don’t like the smell and we use red pepper and paprika around the border of the garden to ward off other critters, like our giant Siamese cat.

I’ll have to be completely honest in that normally I don’t care that much for this recipe (the texture is kind of funny), but I was really hungry and when Jean let me know the lettuce was harvested from our garden I was excited to be eating some of our own home grown food. I dug right in and it hit the spot.
