Vegan 'Tuna' Salad Recipe from Frontier Natural Products Co-op

Vegan "Tuna" Salad

Anyone who loves tuna salad but doesn't love the tuna fishing industry's practices will appreciate the magic of this vegan "tuna" salad recipe.

The texture and brininess of the artichokes and the seafood flavor of dulse flakes (a sea vegetable) combine to be just as delicious as real tuna salad — without any fake, processed substitutes. Enjoy it on a sandwich, in a lettuce wrap, or as a dip!

  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Chill Time: 60 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour and 20 minutes
  • Serves: 4 - 6


  • 1/4 cup yellow onion
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 1 can (15 ounces) organic garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can (15 ounces) artichoke hearts, drained but not rinsed
  • 2 teaspoons Frontier Organic Seafood Seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons dill weed
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup vegan mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon organic dulse flakes (optional)


  1. In a food processor, pulse onion and celery until very finely chopped.
  2. Add garbanzo beans and artichoke hearts and pulse just until vegetables are combined. You'll want a "chunky," tuna-like texture.
  3. Transfer processed mixture to a large bowl and stir in Seafood Seasoning, dill, lemon juice and vegan mayonnaise. Add dulse flakes if desired.
  4. Chill for one hour and serve.

Serving Ideas

  1. Serve mock tuna salad on toasted organic whole grain bread with bean sprouts, cucumbers and arugula.
  2. Fold into lettuce wraps, drizzle lightly with toasted sesame oil and sprinkle with black sesame seeds, scallions and grated carrots.
  3. Pair with an assortment of rice, nut and bean crackers and crudites.
