I make mine without mustart but adding:  a bit of seaweed flakes, a bit of grate ginger - really!, a squeeze of fresh lime juice and a bit of black salt (from Indian market. So delish!

Amazing! The first time I had this my boyfriend put it in a warm pita pocket with banana peppers, jalapenos, tomatoes, lettuce, and sriracha. So good!

Just made this for me, my mom, and sister.  Taste delish.  My mom said she liked it better than real tuna salad.  Definately awesome for those transitioning to a vegetarian-vegan diet. :)>>>  Loved it!  The texture is really similiar and the taste is so close it feels like I'm not missing one of my favorite things that I'm leaving behind. ;)b  Thanks to all for the wonderful reviews and ideas.  I added onion and garlic powder and a sprinkly of Mrs. Dash.  Will probably add some celery next time.  My supermarket was out of sprouts so I was unable to add those to my pita pocket. >:(

Much Love and Blessings!

If you add a little hijiki and lemon juice I think the seafood flavor comes across more.  I like this a lot!  It's good with dill too.

This was awesome!  ;)b I see the resemblance to tuna but the taste of tuna was not there. I loved it though! I will make this at least once a week. I topped it with avocado and tomato....soooo good!

great recipe.  I made it with the kelp powder for a more ocean like taste.

This is an awesome recipe and is always my go-to when I need something quick and easy. I also add parsley to give it some extra color.

I eat this:
on toast, fancy bread, or pita.
when I'm lazy and/or drunk.
when I refuse to grocery shopping.
when I want the oh-so-delicious taste of preservatives.
when I miss home and Mom's tuna salad.

Thanks for always being there for me, chickpeas, veganaise, mustard, and relish.
