Laura-Jane of the Rawtarian introduced Raw tuna salad. It is an easy to make and very delicious salad! You can eat it with a crisp apple, enjoy on raw crackers, on top of salad, in a nori roll, or more…


Tuna Paste/Pate:

2 cups sunflower seeds (soaked for at least 1-2 hours)

1 tablespoon (or a bit more) dulse (seaweed) (make sure to wet your dulse first with the lemon juice or apple cider vinegar)

1 clove garlic

1 teaspoon lemon juice

1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

1 teaspoon thyme

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Add in:

Chopped celery

Chopped onions

Chopped parsley

Chopped raw pickles (optional)

Chopped apples (optional)


1. Soak the nuts in luke-warm water for at least one hour to soften them. Rinse them well and discard all water.

2. Process all of the paste ingredients in a food processor on high until the mixture resembles a very smooth paste. You should not see any nut bits at all. You may need to stop and start and get in there with a spatula.

3. Eat right away or refrigerate to eat later. I prefer to keep the pate separate and I don't add any chunks (onions, celery, etc) until I'm ready to eat.

4. When you're ready to eat, serve your portion in a bowl. Then add some chopped onions, parsley, raw pickles or apples to suit your taste.

5. Enjoy on crackers, on top of a salad, in a nori roll, or more...

About Laura-Jane the Rawtarian

My name is Laura-Jane The Rawtarian, and I am a passionate raw vegan. What is a “raw vegan?” A raw vegan is someone who eats only raw fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds–none of which are ever heated above 105f (40.6 celcius). That’s it. Think I’m crazy? Think I must only eat carrot sticks and handfuls of almonds? Not so. Raw vegan recipes include cookies, cakes, crackers, pastas and more. All made from fruit, vegetables, seeds, and nuts. No bread products, no dairy products, just raw, natural ingredients! There is a whole movement of “raw vegans” (or “raw fooders”) who invent and share creative raw food recipes. Raw vegans prepare recipes using blenders and food processors instead of ovens and microwaves! Please join me on this journey of lifestyle change as we strive to live a raw food lifestyle.
