The veal with tuna sauce (vitello tonnato in Italian) is an authentic and traditional Italian recipe that has been copied worldwide. The traditional version calls for slices of boiled veal covered with a sauce of tuna, anchovies, mayonnaise and capers.
But make a homemade tuna sauce without using tuna, eggs and dairy, is that possible? Personally I make a tuna sauce to coat my vegan vitel tonné better than traditional sauce! Using Vegan mayonnaise we must know that is healthier, cholesterol-free and also is easy to make, in fact you need only 4 ingredients to make a perfect vegan majo:
unsweetened soy milk or rice milk, unrefined sunflower oil, lemon juice, sea salt to taste) and 5 minutes to finish
After scouring through recipes online, and a little tweaking, I really think I’ve come up with the best homemade vegan tuna sauce!
For this recipe I was inspired by the traditional Italian "scallopine". In Italy "scaloppine" are thinly sliced cuts of meat, that are commonly dusted with flour, sautéed and served with a side of vegetables.
Since we are vegans will use Seitan instead of meat and the result will be better of the original recipe with meat!
This recipe remember the flavor of the Italian lands, Radicchio is truly part of the Italian culture. If you come in Italy, you can above taste this vegetable in Veneto region.
This recipe is made with Carnaroli rice that's the best variety for cook "risotti".
The Veneto tradition suggest to use red wine for accompany your risotto!
Dried Porcini mushrooms take on an intense, smoky flavor that fills the room with its rich fragrance. I cooked my special risotto with they, obtaining a great success with my guests. I like to use dried Porcini mushrooms to deepen the flavor of soups, gravies and in sauces for polenta and pasta. usually I prefer to let soaking dried mushrooms throughout the night, changing several times the water and holding the last to cook the stock.
Having a perfect vegan lunch is essential for such a variety of reasons!
Food gives us energy and issues us vitality.
So what should you eat for lunch to get the nutrition you need?
At lunch, aim for a mix of protein from beans, peas, nuts, grains, combined with starchy carbs.
Eating a supplement stuffed lunch helps us stay away from a mid-evening accident!
It’s important to know that at lunch you need carb-rich foods because without them you’re likely to suffer that classic mid-afternoon slump. The key is to choose carbs that produce a steady rise in blood sugar, which means passing on the sugary ‘white’ foods and going for high roughage whole grains that help you manage those afternoon munchies.
We need some fats in our diet, but it’s important we don’t eat too much and the focus should be on the right type of fat.
Skipping lunch is not a good idea, abandons us starving when we return home from work or running errands.
Oatmeal, pasta, pizzas, savory cakes, macaroni, spaghetti, rice, risotti, lentil soup, beans soup, bread, filled french toast.
