Vegan Tuna Pasta Bake - Veganuary

Cuisine type: British Classics, Vegan

Diet: Healthy | Low Saturated Fat | Low Cholesterol | Low Carb | Source Of Protein | Cholesterol Free | Low Sugars

This simple vegan tuna pasta recipe is even better than the original! You might be thinking to yourself, "It can't be genuine tuna, can it?" Well, this recipe will show you how to make vegan foods taste like the genuine thing just by experimenting with different flavours! Chickpeas and caper juice are combined to manufacture the tuna. It also includes vegan cheese and vegan mayo. The use of salted crisps, in addition to the caper juice, is a very unexpected component but with each bite, they provide a subtle salty crispiness to the vegan tuna bake.
