Did you add the sundried tomatoes???
What other mock tunas have you had? I love Cindy's Mock Tuna salad. Has anyone tasted both and can tell me how they compare?

i didn't add the sundried tomatoes OR the fresh herbs. I just wanted a plain mayo, since it's been so long...:p
Here's what I did learn....I made WAY too much tuna:mayo ratio. I added the WHOLE batch of mayo and it's still very dry. Perhaps I should have just stirred it in rather than blend it in the FP? or perhaps he soaked the almonds first? I'm gonna toy with it. I thought the tuna was great even BEFORE the mayo and the mayo was yummy enough to eat with a spoon! LOL!
To doctor it up, I'm gonna make another batch of mayo and use that on my lettuce wraps so it won't be quite so dry. It's still DELISH dry or not. I'd lvoe to hear what your exp was with this recipe.
Where do I find "Cindy's Tuna"? I'd like to try it to compare. :)

Wow that sandwich looks pretty. I never liked real tuna but do you think I should give it a go? Same thing with salmon. Everyone raves about the mock salmon pate but I have never given it a go...

Oh it's actually virtually the same. James must have adapted his from Cindys.

Definately give it a go, it's gorgeous. I can never keep my hands off it.

In all honesty, is it REALLY a lot like tuna? There is a lot to it, but if it's going to be wicked tasty I might make the investments. Your honest opinion is appreciated:)

yes they are the same recipe give or take a date or two. :rolleyes:
I think it tasted JUST like tuna straight from the can BEFORE the mayo was added. But then again I added 2x the mayo....so maybe I killed the fishy flavor, ya know? Next time I am going to add the mayo by hand into a smaller portion instead of throwing it all together in the FP. It's still totally delish, but I think I screwed it up a little. I couldn't get over how MUCH it tasted like tuna (before the mayo). If it's not fishy enough after the mayo you could always add more kelp powder or soaked nori or wakame, ya know?

I TRIED IT!!! Ate some not more than 30 min. ago and I enjoyed it.
I will admit, though, that I used slightly more salt, cayenne and ACV than the recipe called for. I also feel somewhat guilty because I used all but a cup or so of my almonds the other day to make nut mylk and so was forced to go out and buy some unsoaked ones today - which I only had patience to soak for about 45 min. or so:(
Believe it or not I've never tried collard greens, but they were actually pretty good - nothing like they look. Initially, I was expecting to get a mouth full of that unpleasant wheatgrass proportioned chlorophyll flavor that I don't much enjoy, but it was nothing like that (thank goodness). They are also the ideal wrapper for a food like this. I will have to try making a hemp seed concoction suitable for them:)
Anyway, Zaphirah, thanks for the recipe (it was the one you posted that I used)!

Very very yummy...I would add a little more seaweed... but that's all. Thanks for the recipe.

Mmmmh! I've seen these on goneraw before and wanted to make them! Now I am extra motivated and will buy the stuff for tomorrow! :D
