I made the fake tuna from the recipe section (it is sooooo good) but I made too much. Can I freeze it? Has anyone done this and if so, how did it taste once it was thawed? (The ingredients are chick peas, vegannaise, onions, relish, nutritional yeast and onions).

the mayo might go weird. you could always try it- if it goes weird, maybe put it in the blender?


Can I freeze Vegenaise?

Not if you want it to remain like mayonnaise. Vegenaise ® is an emulsion of oil and water along with other ingredients. When frozen, the emulsion will break, separation will occur, and all the king's horses and all the king's men, well, you know the rest. As a matter of fact, if at any time, you find that the product has separated, it is almost invariably due to the product getting too cold at some point. Many refrigerators have places in them that can drop below the freezing point at times, so try to watch out for these when placing Vegenaise ® in your refrigerator.

Yeah, most fats don't freeze well.

emulsions tend to un-mulsion too.

Thanks for responding. I think I'll give it a miss. I'll just have to eat it over the next couple of days!

It is so, so good. I took it to work and all of my omni friends bug me all the time to bring some more in. They loved it. We even debated dubbing it "funa" or "muna" and my Greek friends said not to call it "muna" (you will have to look up why - lol). I think it tastes a lot like egg salad, but some call it mock tuna. I guess it depends on what you put in it. It's delish on crackers, toast or just with a salad.

A little bit of dulse or nori flakes give that "faux tuna" a REALLY nice, light "ocean" taste, totally adding to the fake tuna-like-ness.
