Tuna Sandwich

I got this can of meatless tuna in my +Vegan Cuts  box last month so of course I was gonna try it and talk about it.  I never liked any kind of seafood when I ate meat, so this was a bit of a leap of faith for me.  It was really easy to prepare, open can, drain, put in a bowl, dress and serve.  Okay so very much like real tuna in that respect.  The pieces were small, but not flaked.  The quantity was just right for a taste, and the nutritional content is amazing:  full of protein, but not a lot of carbs or fat.

I dressed my tuna with FYH Vegenaise, of course, and tapenade from +Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market , which is where I got the awesome rosemary loaf and butter lettuce.  I toasted the loaf, added mayo to one side, topped with lettuce, topped with tuna, cut it in half and wrapped it up to share at work.  So the meat eater said I overpowered the tuna flavor with tapenade.  Which is kind of what I wanted to do, but I could definitely taste the tuna.  It is very close to the real thing.  If you miss tuna, you're gonna love this product, and it's good for you.
