Vegan 'Tuna' Mornay

Want to cut back on your meat intake without sacrificing your favourite warming, comfort foods? You’ve come to the right place! Introducing, Healthy Luxe’s Vegan ‘Tuna’ Mornay. Now, you might be wondering how to veganise the classic, creamy mornay sauce…and especially how to create a vegan version of tuna. Well, it’s not as hard as you think.

To create a vegan bechamel sauce that’s just as creamy and satisfying as the dairy-laden original, she’s used a base of oat milk with a little nutritional yeast, olive oil, arrowroot flour, salt and pepper and nigella seeds (which provide an oregano-like quality and a warm, toasted-onion flavour).

And in place of tuna, she’s used Amazonia’s certified organic Tender Jack Original. Incredibly versatile, it has a tender, meaty texture and a subtle taste that lends itself to the flavours in your favourite savoury dishes. Made from young jackfruit hand-harvested in Sri Lanka – also known as the ‘Land of Jack’ – it’s also low in calories, packed with dietary fibre and contains zero artificial ingredients.

This dish is quick, easy, budget-friendly, and the perfect mid-week meal to thaw you out on a cold winter day! It can also be pulled together using whatever ingredients you have lying around – you can add different veggies or spices to mix it up!
