Author Notes: This fishless tuna (funa) is really simple Alannah | Kale Mary

  • 1/2 cup Sunflower seeds
  • 2 Marinated artichoke hearts

For the salad

  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Extra virgin olive oil

  • 3 Gem lettuce, stem removed
  • 1 punnet cherry tomatoes, or 4-5 small vine-ripened

  • Radish, to serve

In This Recipe


  1. Add all tuna ingredients to a food processor and process on high until ingredients are combined. You want there to still be some texture, but overall, the tuna should be paste-like. Set aside.
  2. Combine dijon, olive oil, nutritional yeast and lemon juice in a small bowl to make the dressing. Whisk until combined, then set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, add lettuce, tomatoes, onion, marinated chickpeas, dressing and spoonfuls of tuna. Mix well to combine, before garnishing with radish and dill.
