Discovered a new item at my favorite supermarket, Esselunga.
Raw as in sashimi, grilled like a steak, or dumped out of a can, I loves me my tuna, but this faux tonno (TOH-noh – Italian for tuna) smacks nothing of Chicken of the Sea. Vuna is something that would have bluefins and yellowfins swimming for joy. Can you imagine if we could just give those guys a break for a change? I’m no vegetarian, but this is as close to the real thing. No joke!
A little FYI or do you know or do you care: produced by Nestlé, vuna is made with water, pea protein, rapeseed oil, wheat gluten, flavoring, dietary fiber and salt. Initially I thought it was a vegan product, but on the label it states contents may contain eggs, sesame seeds, mustard, celery and soy.
From now on, I will never grow peas without looking at them in a different way.
