Vegan Tuna Salad – Make A Vegan Tuna Melt!

No, this is not one of those chickpea tuna recipes. I have seen a lot of recipes floating around for chickpea “tuna” salad sandwiches. They are delicious.  I make them as well, however, I craved the taste and texture of that classic tuna sandwich that I ate as a child. I fiddled around with ingredients and proportions until I came up with something pretty darn close to the taste and texture that I remember!

I used TVP (textured vegetable protein) for the “tuna.” It is a dehydrated soy protein that absorbs the flavor of whatever you re-hydrate it in. (You can usually find TVP easily at any natural foods store or most major grocery stores in the Bob’s Red Mill section).

Grill it with a slice of vegan cheese and you have a hot, mouthwatering vegan tuna melt!  Put a little vegan butter on the outside sides of the bread and grill it on medium heat until it is golden brown and the cheese is melted!


  • ½ cup boiling water
  • 1 tsp kelp flakes
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¾ cup TVP crumbles
  • ½ cup vegan mayo
  • ¼ cup finely chopped celery optional
  • 2 tbsp pickle relish optional
  • vegan cheese like Tofutti or Daiya shreds or slices optional
  • bread of choice
  • 1 tsp vegan butter optional (for tuna melt)


  1. 1 Boil water and pour it into a bowl.
  2. Add the kelp flakes and salt then stir well.
  3. Add the TVP to the water and kelp mixture and stir.
  4. .........................................
