This vegan tuna tastes so much like tuna fish that it’s freaky. It even smells like tuna fish. I ordered these Vegan Tuna Rolls from Healthy Eating, a good resource for all kinds of things. Here in the U.S., the word roll can refer to a type of sandwich–the exact type of sandwich pictured on the box (see photo below). However, the world “roll” as used on this box of tuna rolls means you literally get two frozen, sausage-shaped rolls of vegan tuna filling (see last photo below). So, the tuna filling comes all by itself, with no bread or anything. You simply thaw and then cut open these tuna logs and use the filling as you would a can of tuna fish. About price: I had no choice but to order six boxes of tuna rolls for a total of $59.99. Shipping and handling was another $14.95, for a total of $74.94, let’s call it $75. However, we got three sandwiches out of each tuna roll, and that means enough vegan tuna to make six sandwiches per box. $75 divided by 36 = $2.08 per serving, and that includes frozen shipping with cold packs. Now, the box says there are “about 4” servings per box, and that would make some big sandwiches. The sandwiches I made were a generous-average size, in my opinion. So, price would vary depending upon use.
As far as “dressing up” this tuna, the sky’s the limit. My favorite ingredients include Vegenaise, chopped pickled red onions, sweet relish, salt and pepper. I had a friend who always put Celery Salt in her tuna salad, and finely-chopped celery. You could put capers or grated carrots, etc. If these Vegan Tuna Rolls are not your thing, please check out the other vegan tuna salad also on this site–it’s delicious and easy. p.s. Lars never liked tuna fish salad, so I was surprised that he really likes this vegan tuna!
