I'm going to show you how to make my easy vegan tuna melt recipe! This classic sandwich takes under 10 mins to make an authentic vegan tuna melt.
Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Vegan
Serves: 2 sandwiches
Tuna Salad:
  1. In a small mixing bowl break up the jackfruit with a fork. Toss in minced celery, onion, and parsley. Add the vegan mayonnaise, dijon mustard, nori or kelp, and season with pepper to taste. Stir to combine. Add lemon juice, if you want.
Tuna Melt:
  1. Preheat the broiler and set the rack about 4 to 5 inches from the heat source.
  2. Toast your bagel, english muffins or slices of bread.
  3. Optionally, spread the toasted bagel, english muffin or bread with mayonnaise or vegan butter,.
  4. Next, top with the vegan tuna salad and then vegan cheese. Place on baking sheet and put under the broiler heat for 3 to 5 minutes, until the cheese has melted. Serve immediately.
This recipe keeps for 3-5 day and tastes even better the longer you have it in the fridge as it absorbs more and more of the flavour over time.
Intead of bread, you can also top this vegan tuna salad on top of a fresh garden salad!
