Does vegan tuna really exist?
Yep, you bet your butt it does! Vegan tuna is one of my fav ways to add protein into my diet as it’s totally different and adds a different flavour than typical plant-based proteins. I use Good Catch Foods tuna for this recipe and always have some in my pantry as it’s great to throw in salads, pastas, or other recipes.
Good Catch Foods makes a variety of different vegan tuna products that are made out of a blend of plant proteins such as:
- Fava beans
- Navy beans
Their products are super easy to use and you can easily eat them on their own, or throw it into any recipe, or Asian inspired recipe like this one. I have a few ideas for recipes you can make with their products linked below.
