Raw Vegan "Tuna" Salad

Easy Raw Vegan "Tuna" Salad Recipe

 One of my favorite dishes that I have made so far in my journey!

  I'm always looking for a few really good raw staple recipes, to keep me eating the raw nutritious foods that I need. I love to keep it fruit based but add in some mineral rich vegetables as well. My biggest problem with eating raw veggies is that I need a good dip! Without a tasty dip forget about it I don't even try to eat raw veggies.

In the above picture my raw vegan "tuna" salad with carrots, green bell pepper, cucumber and celery.

  I am looking for a few more tasty dips but this one is my current favorite. I also like this in romaine lettuce boats shown in the picture below. You can top it with what ever you like! This make a great meal or snack. Sorry about picture quality I just took them with my phone and added it here. 

 I found this Easy Raw Vegan "Tuna" Salad recipe on the Yummly app to start with. I did make a few adjustments. I first learned about raw vegan "tuna" salad when my friend had it with her veggie platter. I decided to make it and I loved it!

The Recipe that I use...

This was 1 cup raw sunflower seeds soaked for 2 hours. 

In a food processor add the soaked and drained seeds

1/2 cup shredded carrots

1/2 cup chopped celery

Juice of half a lemon

1 good size dill pickle chopped

1/2 tbsp. agave syrup

1/4 tsp onion powder 

1/4 tsp paprika

Pinch of salt (I use pink salt) and pepper

Process until you have reached desired consistency. For a dip I like to blend it a bit smoother but if you are eating this in romaine lettuce you may want it chunkier. This recipe taste just like tuna salad in my opinion but without the fishiness. 

This dish tastes clean and it is filling. Sunflower seeds are packed with minerals and nutrient. I myself try to get them in for the high selenium content. Sunflower seeds are also easier to digest than some other seeds or nuts. 

If you soak them they are even easier to digest. I find that my stomach is not bother by them. This is just some of the reasons why I like to have sunflower seeds on hand. Sometimes I put them in a smoothie too. 

Also I should say that if you use this as a dip don't expect it to be creamy or real dip-able. This recipe has a chunky texture even when you blend it more. I didn't want to blend it too much because I thought it would take away the flavors if I did that. 

So it's more of a scoop than a dip lol! 

Sunflower seeds offer plenty of good fats, vitamins, mineral and plant protein. A great base for a raw vegan meal. When you add up all of the veggies too, this meal is packed with nutrition! This made me a filing and nutritious meal :)

This recipe make about 1/2 a pound of mixture. I eat nearly the whole thing with my veggies for a meal or split it up into two. I usually end up sharing some of it with others in my family. But most of it is for me :) In the picture below I have my veggies and Raw Vegan "tuna" Salad mixture ready for me to eat.

I prepped my veggies by cutting up 3 carrots, 2 talks of celery, 1 bell pepper and half of a long cucumber. It is a good idea to have food like this prepped so you have an easy meal to go for. Then you won't eat whatever is in front of you that is not too great. This is especially good for those who are also preparing for a family like me. 

If your not a big eater just split this recipe up into two meals with lots of veggies and or romaine lettuce. At 24 grams of protein this can certainly be for two meals or one meal two people. But for a main meal this is great for one person. 

I recently bought 2 pounds of raw sunflower seed just so I can make this recipe more regularly. I need the mineralization of eating my veggies and sunflower seeds. I don't eat them every day but I am trying to get more into doing that. 

This recipe and a few others is how I am going to do it!   

This recipe is also great for make ahead of time meals. I like to prep my food in the morning when I am not eating. That way when I am ready to eat my food is ready and available. 

 Thank you for taking the time to read this. I hope this helps you in some way!
