Vegan Diaries – “Tuna” Pasta

This meal is a completely vegan dish that is able to somewhat give you the texture, protein and slight taste of tuna, having not played around with this recipe too much one will never really know how to master an awesome vegan dish without many attempts to somehow perfect and get the sign of an approval from a non-vegan.

Feel free to add or omit any ingredients you wish. Adding your own spin on the recipe is always the best part about cooking, so make a mess, be creative and have fun with this recipe. Just because the recipe is title “tuna” pasta doesn’t mean that the dish will taste exactly like tuna because trust me it won’t but if you add just the right amount of spices you might just get lucky.
