This vegan tuna salad with jackfruit and chickpeas is creamy and textured like the non vegan Tuna salad. With two ingredients it gets its sea taste. We cannot get enough of it. It is perfect for example as a sandwich or tossed just over a lettuce salad.

You are looking for an incredibly creamy tuna alternative? Then you should try these. The salad does not have only the texture of the non-vegan salad, it also comes very close to the taste.
Ingredients
  • 1 can chickpeas
  • 1 can jackfruit in brine (not syrup, very important)
  • 3 wakame flakes
  • ½ teaspoon or more kelp powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder and garlic powder
  • possibly season to taste
Instructions
  1. It's best to start the evening before. Rinse the jackfruit and cut off the hard part. So far, I do not know how to use it, but I'm still looking for something.
  2. Now you put these textured parts in enough hot water.
  3. Add the wakame flakes. Wakame is a dried seaweed that gives it its typical fishy taste.
  4. The next day, you can rinse the jackfruit and discard the wakame flakes or use it otherwise.
  5. Rinse the chickpeas. Catch the liquid, you can use them as an egg substitute in various recipes. Just have a look on my page.
  6. Put the chickpeas in a high speed blender and mix vigorously until it is a very creamy consistency. Now you can add the jackfruit and mix once. For this I use the pulse function of my blender.
  7. Add the remaining ingredients and give the whole thing a short pulse again.
  8. Put the Untuna salad in a bowl and taste it again. Add more salt or kelp powder.
  9. Just look how it tastes you best.
  10. Now it is ready to serve.

    Love the idea of combining jackfruit with the chickpeas. Sounds like the perfect flavor and texture for vegan tuna salad. Love it!

    What a genius way to create a veganized tuna salad! So far, I’ve only used jackfruit with BBQ sauce, so I’m excited to try it with other flavourings.

    Oh my gosh this is genius!! I remember the first time I tried kelp powder it freaked me out slightly because it tasted just like seafood! 😛 Great recipe.

      Oh yes is crazy how similar it is. I heard fishes got it just because they eat algae. Why not eating the algaes directly to get the taste.

    What a genius idea, I bet the combination of chickpeas and jackfruit creates a great texture.

      It is the perfect texture to imitate it.

    I love using jackfruit and chickpeas to make “tuna” salad. Who says being vegan has to be boring? 😉

      Right so true. Anything else as boring.

    This looks awesome Jasmin! I can’t eat sea veggies but I’m already thinking about a way around that. Even if it doesn’t have a tuna taste I know it will be delicious! Thanks for sharing more of your goodness ♡
