Vegan Tuna Melt with Indianlife Tortillas


Looking for a new vegan recipe non-vegans will love? Perhaps you’re “jonesing” for an incredible tuna melt after going vegan? Indianlife and “Veggies Do it Better”, an Oregon-based Facebook Community dedicated to incredibly delicious, accessible and easy-to-prepare vegan cuisine, has your back!

This vegan “Tuna Melt” features the gooey melted vegan cheese of your choice and Soy Curls.
Our Indianlife Torilla Wrap wraps it all up and makes creating this and other recipes easy! In fact, you can substitute any of our Indianlife Large Wraps in this simple, delicious recipe.

First, we prep our vegan protein. Soy Curls deliver “meat-like” taste and texture, and a common question is, how do they differ from Textured Vegetable Protein or TVP? TVP is a highly processed product made from de-fatted soy flour, a by product of soy oil production. Soy Curls are made from 100% whole soybeans, and while still a processed food, are considered by many to be less so than TVP. And Soy Curls contain the soybean’s complete amino acid profile.

For this recipe, the Soy Curls are flavored in sublime brine and soaked for just 10 to 20 minutes. Create the brine as per instructions below. Add your Soy Curls; all curls should be completely covered by brine. After the Soy Curls have soaked, drain into a strainer and remove excess liquid by pressing down on the them with a bowl. Reserve some of the brine, and pulse the Soy Curls in a food processor until JUST shredded. For the “tuna” texture we’re seeking, we want to make sure we don’t over-process them! Use pulse and remember when processing, “less is more.” Now our meatless “tuna” is ready to go!
