Fun with Raw Foods: Mock Tuna Salad

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'll get around to posting the huge array of recipes I promised, But first...

You're not going to believe how good this is, and how close it tastes to real tuna fish (can anyone out there remember real tuna fish?) I mean, even if you're not a vegetarian, the thought of all that mercury and overfishing... and the cost of 'safe' tuna? *shudders* Here's a tuna salad you'll love. Don't be weirded out by all the ingredients... they all combine to make the best mock tuna ever.

Mock Tuna Salad
1 Cup Almonds (with skins, soaked and air dried)
1 Cup Raw Walnuts (soaked)
1/4 fresh lemon (and I mean ALL parts)
1/2 Tsp. Garlic (minced)
1/2 sheet Nori (NOT toasted, obviously!lol)
2 Tbs. GF Tamari or dark miso
1/4-1/2 c water
In FP blend seeds, nuts, garlic, nori & Tamari, until the mixture resembles very dry tuna fish (I use the pulse button about 12 times. It may take more). Remove 2/3 of it and transfer to bowl. Add the lemon and water to remaining 1/3 and process until it's very smooth. Mix this into the coarser mixture.


1 pickle chopped (Bubbies pickle)
1 Tsp. Ume Plum vinegar
1/4 c Bubbies pickle juice
1 tsp. fresh Dill Weed (chopped)
1Tbsp fresh parsley (chopped)
1/4 Cup Onion (chopped)
1/4 Cup chopped Celery

Stir until mixed!
