Having been a vegetarian turned vegan for over 20 years, it is second nature adapting recipes to meet my dietary needs. One of my all time favorite sandwiches is my faux tuna sandwich. Raw. Made from seeds and nuts. It’s so fulfilling each time, it has become a regular rotation in my menu preparation. Yield: 4-6 sandwiches.
1 cup of toasted walnuts
1 cup toasted sunflower seeds
2 Tbsp. of shoyu or braggs liquid amino
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
6 sheets of seaweed (the small snack size)
1 clove of garlic
1//4-1/2 cup water
1 stalk of celery, diced
1/4 white onion, diced
2 Tbsp. minced parsley
2 slices of cucumber
2 slices of tomato
hummus (see recipe under gnosh)
2 slices of bell pepper
Place the walnuts, sunflower seeds, shoyu, lemon juice, seaweed, & water into a blender and blend until slightly creamy. I prefer just a little lumpy texture and will not puree it smoothly. Place into a bowl, and add diced celery, onion, and parsley. Mix together.
Everyone likes a bit something different on their sandwiches, but I layer mine with whatever veggies I feel obliged to partake in: cucumber, tomato, hummus, bell pepper, lettuce, avocado, mustard. This is even great on a rice cake.
