Tuna Noodle Casserole Veganized!
By Scott - [email protected]

Just wanted to let you know that I successfully veganized Tuna Noodle casserole the following way:

I used Rokeach mushroom soup (no dairy and it's 100% vegetarian). It has the taste and texture of cream of mushroom soup, only it is dark brown in color which is easily remedied with the addition of Edensoy original soymilk or that and tofu sour cream (Tofutti's Sour Supreme). The "tuna" is drained, canned chickpeas which I put in the blender blade bowl of a food processor and pulsed until it had the ground flakiness of tuna.

For the "egg" noodles, I used "Light and fluffy" macaroni dumplings

Mix 2-3 cans of the soup (and a little soymilk if using it) with the cooked dumplings and the ground chickpeas and bake in the oven at 350-400 until heated through and presto! You'll never need tuna again. You can even put some Tofutti vegan American cheeze slices on top which are vegan.

Enjoy! ( I found the soup at Murray Ave. Kosher. I imagine the kosher section of a lot of grocery stores would carry the Rokeach line.)

I like to add some diced onion and celery to my tu-No casserole. Many health food stores carry pastas that are not made with eggs, including ribbon noodles which would work well in this recipe if you can't find the macaroni dumplings. Vegan mushroom soup can be made from scratch if you can't find the brand Scott suggested. Cook minced mushrooms (portabello mushrooms have a lot of flavor) in a neutral tasting milk alternative, oatmilk or a soymilk like Edensoy original, don't use vanilla flavored) and add a bit of cornstarch or whole wheat flour to thicken. There are also at least two tuna substitutes available in cans called Tuno, one from Loma Linda and one from Worthington, but they are a bit salty and oily. But hey, if that bothers you, just think back to the last time you had sex on the beach....not so bad anymore is it?
