I need to try this. I was never a huge tuna salad fan as an omni, but every now and then it was good to have. I'll whip up a batch of this once I've worked through my backlog of recipes to try. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

I have totally eaten a whole batch of this over the course of a day. On more than one occasion. I always have to restrain myself from making it everyday, cause I like it with more vegenaise than necessary.<br><br><br><br>
Arrrgh... I'm hungry and I want some now!

I made a huge batch this afternoon. Grab your bread and come over!<br><br><br><br>
Mojie, you really should try it. It's much tastier than "real" tuna salad.

I've been wanting this so bad lately, just haven't had time to make it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> I need to pick up some vegan mayo.

I don't think this tastes like tuna at all. Tuna is all fishy smelling and nasty and this is pure heaven <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":love:">

This one tastes more like tuna (I've been told). It's quite good.

That would be because of the dried kelp powder in it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br><br><br>
I don't know if I would personally like a 'sea' taste in this sort of recipe, though I do enjoy seaweed in other recipes.

I'm going to trying this over the weekend. It's seems yummy and comes highly recommended by veggie here on the forum. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

And you're going to wind up highly addicted to the stuff. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/yes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":yes:"><br><br><br><br><br><br>
I like to make this and stuff it into a hollowed-out beefsteak tomato (use the "innerds" as another salad ingredient). Then, I eat like there's no tomorrow. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hungry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hungry:"><br><br><br><br>
So. Freakishly. GOOOOOOD! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/drool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":drool:">

Heck yeah it is! I made it twice last week to share only between my 5 year old and I, it was gone in no time!

Finally got around to making this. I cut the recipe in half (since I'm going to be the only one eating it) and added a little extra Vegenaise and about 1/4 cup of diced celery for some crunch.<br><br><br><br>
It's very tasty! I wouldn't say it tastes like tuna salad, exactly, but it has that generic sort of "salad" taste (egg salad, potato salad, etc. all have a similar taste to me) that I really like. I'm having some on crackers for lunch today. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

Can this be made without the nutritional yeast flakes? What ARE nutritional yeast flakes & where can I buy them? Thanks!<br><br><br><br>
Also, how long will this need refrigeration?

I'm not sure how it would taste without the nutrional yeast. I don't think I'd try it that way though. It should be fairly easy to find but you may need to go to a health food store. I get mine in the bulk bins.<br><br><br><br>
You don't have to refrigerate prior to eating but it would probably be better that way - giving the flavors more time to meld.

I've never made it with yeast flakes and it tastes great to me. I mash the beans with a fork and just throw the rest in as is, then mix.

Yeah, it doesn't seem similar to tuna salad in any way to me. It's good, for what it is - a Mayonaise-tasting salad/sandwich-spread that's tasty on bread or as a dip. But I don't exactly get the whole "tuna" thing.

I've never had nutritional yeast and I've made this (without) many times, it's pretty damn good <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

+1 on skipping the yeast. I eat this stuff all the time and have never used the yeast. i also just make it and eat it, without refrigerating it first. also, I think it definitely tastes similar to tuna salad. lol.

Yay I made it & it WAS so good! I did end up finding nutritional yeast at whole foods (it was expensive though <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/undecided.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":-/">) & I cut the recipe in half because there is only me. I ate it before refrigerating it, but I have to admit it tasted a lot better once it was colder. & I also think it tastes much more similar to egg salad, which I liked better anyway :p<br><br><br><br>
P.s. I used a potato masher & it worked fine. I also used a fork a little bit to get some stray beans, but mostly the masher
