What is more retro than Tuna Casserole?

Classic Tuna(less) Casserole

There are only two kinds of people in this world, those that LOVE Tuna Casserole and those that HATE Tuna Casserole. Interesting side note here, would it be the same people who love or hate Christmas fruit cake…..I LOVE both 🙂

This recipe uses mashed chick peas as the Tuna substitute. I mashed them with a fork so that they did not get too smooth.

The “fishy” taste comes from dulse flakes, a mild seaweed with a fresh salty side to it, perfect for this recipe.

Enjoy,

  3. Omigosh, we often used to have tuna casserole as a kid, and even though I hated seafood I loved it (also loved tuna patties for some reason). My mum used to put hard boiled eggs in it as well. Very retro.
