Help!!! I need something to take the place of a spicy tuna roll! I miss it soooooo much! Not the tuna but the flavors...nothing seems to do it! Any suggestions?

Hmm.. I never tried it, but I made vegan sushi today actually (see my blog below) as for what can take the place of spicy tuna.. what if you make a mixture of wasabi, water, vinegar, and some sugar and use that to pickle some radish? Or, add a touch of soy sauce and use that to boil the radish quickly for about 5 minutes. Radish has a really nice bite to it, and the wasabi will only kick it up a notch, to be tempered by the sugar and soy sauce. You really want to either boil or pickle it to get rid of the crunch though.



Tell me how it goes: I've never personally tried this at all.



You could also marinade some firm tofu with a mixture like what I suggested to pickle the radish in and roast it in the oven.

Baked tofu or marinated tempeh that has been made into a "tuna" salad works really well in sushi.

Yes, tempeh is great for sushi. I marinated some in a mixture of soy sauce and sherry vinegar, then pan fried it. It did the trick.

Seaweed salad roll, or avocado and veg, are my favorites. Having never eaten a spicy tuna roll, I can't say what it's like to pick something else to be like it.

never eaten tuna, but some of the yeast pâté I've eaten tastes like tuna smells. maybe it was mushroom pâté.





just an idea.

spicy red rooster sauce (i make my own cuz the commercial version has xantham gum and other preservatives) gets that spicy tuna flavor for me.



last time i made sushi i made a spicy roll with boiled yam mashed with a little sesame oil and lots of rooster sauce ( i like it spicy!) added some clover sprouts too.



recipe for rooster sauce (tuong ot sriracha)

red jalapenos (i use some habaneros too..i really like spicy flavor)

vinegar

garlic

sugar/agave works too

salt or soy sauce



i just blend it all together adding more or less spice and vinegar to taste and consistency i need at the time (works well thick and liquidy)

I worship Wakame(seaweed salad). Especially the frilly, light green strands. Avacado rolls are always good, but I've never eaten spicy tuna before, so I have no idea what that tastes like.

If you don't like garlic or cannot risk a bad breath - try ginger instead. Tastes Great!

I've never had spicy tuna rolls, but I believe what you're missing isn't the tuna so much as the combination of mayonnaise, chili oil and sugar which I believe is what's used in various spicy rolls (be it spicy tuna, asparagus, broccoli, avocado, etc.).



Trying making your own with vegenaise maybe? :shrug:

I made a really good batch of sushi for breakfast. I used the soy sauce and sherry vinegar tempeh, but threw some cumin and pepper on there too. I also used the last of some miso black bean sauce that I had made earlier in the week alongside the tempeh. Oh man was it tasty.

There is a whole vegan sushi cookbook - I own it and made sushi out of it once (it just takes a lot of effort) but it was very good. I don't think they had a "mock" spicy tuna roll - given that I never ate one before I was veg, I don't know what to tell you would be a good alternative. But there were a lot of good recipes in this book:
