With all that is going in the world right now, spending time on social media is a routine I have eliminated from my life at the moment. Instead, I have turned back to spending time in the kitchen creating new recipes.
This, for me, has been kind of a coping mechanism. A way for me to take my mind off what is happening, off the hurt, the pain and the anger.
When I am in the kitchen, focused on the task at hand, focused on measuring, tasting, writing down measurements and steps, I manage to momentarily disconnect from the emotions I have inside in connection to the murders of innocent black people in the United States and the racism that continues to exist around the world.
I do not want to make this blogpost about this topic, but I wanted to share some of the things that have helped me navigate the situation that has been unfolding before our eyes in the past couple of days.
For me cooking, recipe creation and photography are part of the solution. And that is why I still find it important to keep going and keep creating and sharing my discoveries in the kitchen.
This recipe for watermelon vegan tuna with spicy mayo sauce was inspired by a post I saw on a vegan Facebook group, where a person shared her attempt in making vegan tuna. She shared her approximate steps and some of the ingredients she used and I decided to create a full recipe out of it.
With a little bit of trial and error, I came up with this recipe. These vegan tuna cubes were a true revelation for me! They are so juicy, so flavorful and so different than anything I have had in my life. They literally melt in your mouth!
These little beauties can be used in poké bowls, in vegan sushi rolls or even as a little garnish on an avocado toast to add an extra textural element and a pop of flavor.
On that note, I am telling you guys, you HAVE to try this recipe. It is so surprisingly good and quite addictive!
If you guys give this watermelon vegan tuna with spicy mayo sauce a try, be sure to share it on social and tag me (@muriellebanackissa).
Stay safe out there! My heart goes out to all of you and I hope that these hard times, will result long lasting change, where we can all been seen and treated as equal to each other. I hope we can come out of this situation stronger and more united.
Much love and light!
