“For vegetarians craving the taste and texture of tuna salad, this comes close.” - by bibliobubba
Original recipe yields 4 cups
- Heat the broth to a light boil over medium-high heat. Add the tempeh to the broth, and simmer for 25 minutes. Drain and let cool to room temperature for 15 minutes. Once cooled, grate tempeh into a large bowl.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, lemon juice, garlic, and seaweed flakes. Pour the seaweed mixture in with the grated tempeh and stir until well mixed. Mix in the red onion, celery, and dill pickles. Toss with the mayonnaise. This salad can be served immediately, but is best when chilled for several hours to allow the flavors to blend.

"Fantastic! I followed the recipe almost exactly, except used a bit more tempeh and mayo. The taste and texture are convincingly close to the real thing. Perfect for those who like tuna salad but would..." See more rather avoid tuna because of mercury, dolphins, overfishing, etc..."
"this was my first experience with Tempeh (i could only find the 5 grain kind, so that's what i used) and it was delicious! I was sure it was going to be too funky for my 2 and 3 year olds to eat, but..." See more i added it to our "tuna" melts and they ate it up! I'm not a vegan, so i just used real mayo, which was just fine. And i didn't have celery, so i added cucumber--great texture! I'm a big believer in eating fermented foods, and now this is a fun addition to my recipe box! thanks for this recipe!!"
"YUM. Seriously delicious, even without the celery (although the consistency is a bit runny because of that omission. who cares about that!?!?). I also decreased the amount of dill pickle, since I t..." See morehought a cup was overkill. Next time I'll be adding a little curry, just for kicks. I didn't bother grating the tempeh but just chunked it - it naturally fell apart during the cooking process. I used vegetable bouillon plus water instead of broth and then added cracked pepper at the very end, before I let it sit in the fridge for a couple hours."
