TuNofish Salad Sandwich

1 Feb

I am a sandwich person at heart… I love sandwiches for lunch or even dinner.  Heck, I love sandwiches for breakfast and snacks as well.  I bought these nice whole wheat hoagie rolls this last week and I have just been making sandwiches away… 

One of my favorite ones is TuNofish Salad – pay attention to the spelling, because it’s made with Tuno, the soy protein flavored with seaweed to taste like regular tuna.  It’s light and makes a great lunch.  My friend Jesiel would say it makes a great breakfast… because she only has tuna sandwiches as breakfast, ever since she was a little kid… 

It’s super simple…



1/3 cup Tuno soy protein, defrosted and squeezed as dry as possible
3 tbs egg-free mayonnaise, such as Vegenaise
1 tbs finely chopped onion
juice of 1/2 lemon or lime
Garlic salt and pepper to taste
Choice of bread – I used a whole wheat hoagie roll
Lettuce – romaine or arugula works great
3 tomato slices
Extra mayo to spread
  1. Mix together in a bowl the Tuno, mayo, onion, lemon juice, garlic salt and pepper. 
  2. Toast bread to your liking.
  3. Spread mayo on both sides.
  4. Place TuNo salad on bottom bread.  Top with lettuce and tomatoes.  Sprinkle some salt and pepper on top of tomatoes.

Enjoy with your favorite kind of natural potato chips or plantain chips.

Just to give you an idea that if you enjoy tunafish sandwiches and you decide to go veggie, you will not have to give the experience or the flavor.  Believe me, these taste just as good as the real thing used to taste to me.

Try it…
