Before I went vegan, and even when I was pescatarian many years ago, I’d probably eaten a tuna melt mayyybe once in my life. In elementary school, tuna sandwiches were always the last to be picked and I’m sure most were thrown away. What a waste of precious life 😔. [Check out my post on importance of making the switch to vegan seafood here]
When I think of a tuna sandwich, I think of spongy bread filled with yellowish-grayish mush wrapped in 10 layers of saran wrap.
Honestly, they just never appealed to me.
Fast forward many years later, and after the kindling of my love affair with jackfruit, I decided to turn this once repulsive sandwich into something that’s not only yummy, but cruelty free, cholesterol free, mercury free, and soy free.
