Did A Make : ‘Tuna’ Mayo (vg)



I have been neglecting the ‘makes’ in favour of ‘eats’  (excuse for eating out loads innit? 😉).

A few people have mentioned recently that I haven’t posted a make in a while and love the simplicity of the recipes I put up here. It was sweet to hear that my makes are inspiring you to do makes of your own!

If you do create an epic make, wing me over a snap, I’d love to see them! Will feature the best of the best on my insta story feed. 👍

Anyway, to the ‘Tuna’ Mayo.

When I was a little ‘un – pre veggie/veganism –  I used to love tuna mayo sandwiches. It’s amazing that you can create a very similar taste with seaweed, legumes, a bit of veg and no sad fishies! 🐟💖

You will need:

  • 2 x Cans Chick Peas
  • 1 x Grated Carrot
  • Juice of 1/2 Lemon
  • 2 x Nori Sheets (get ’em from the oriental section of your local supermarche)
  • 1 Tbsp Pickle Juice (from the pickle/gherkin jar)
  • Vegan Mayo (get it from the ‘free from’ section in most good supermarkets.)
  • 1 Small Tin Sweetcorn (Optional, but you know you want it)
  • Salt
  • Pepper

To make:

  1. Mash the chickpeas to a chunky paste.
  2. Chop the nori sheets into approx 1cm squares. Add to the chick pea mash.
  3. Add the carrot, lemon juice, pickle juice, and sweetcorn to the chickpeas. Stir.
  4. Add a squirt of mayo and stir. Repeat until the mix is nicely combined.
  5. Season with salt and pepper.

And that’s it.

Whack it on a baked potato. Slap it in a toastie. Eat it with a massive spoon. It’s your choice!
