What’s up with sustainable fishing? Does that not defy logic to anyone but me?
You know what’s super duper way more sustainable? Just not eating fish.
But it’s good and yummy and you want a goddamn Tuna Fish Sandwich because Tuna Fish Sandwiches make you happy.
But you for sure don’t want to eat one on a first, or even 5th date. ‘Coz you and I both know that the Tuna Sandwich has never been sexy.
It’s smelly and sloppy and you know who’s eating a tuna on rye? The crazy cat lady who also happens to be a hoarder and her house is always really hot and her windows are all sealed shut (bless her heart!). Her breath smells like dead fish and her cats like it. A lot.
That’s who’s eating tuna dude.
You know what is sexy? Tuna made from white beans.
Simple. Sexy. Infinitely sustainable. That’s what’s up and this is where it’s at.
Vegan Tuna Salad in Stuffed Avocados
3 cups white beans (see note at bottom)
2 celery stalks, diced
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
2 teaspoons dulse powder
1 teaspoon dried dill
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
3/4 cup vegan mayo
- Place the beans in a food processor and pulse until they are crumbly. Do not over process the beans. You don’t want them to be creamy, just really chopped up.
- Once the beans are processed, place them in a mixing bowl and add the celery, onion, dulse, dill, sea salt and mayo. Mix until everything is combined.
- Cut the avocado in half, remove the pit and dig out 1 thin layer of the avocado. The thin layer is just so that the tuna will have a slightly deeper bowl to sit in.
- Scoop some tuna into each half of the avocado and serve.
You can use canned beans or you can make your own.
If you cook your own beans, make sure not to cook them until they are mushy. You want your beans to hold together instead of being super soft. If the beans are too soft, the texture of the your tuna will be more like hummus than tuna.
I enjoy connecting. I like talking about food, cats (I’m not a crazy cat lady. Yet.), and how I still don’t know what to watch ever since Breaking Bad ended.
