Deli Style No-Tuna Melt

Though technically not a burger, these puppies fit very nicely on a bun, or between two pieces of bread. It really tastes like tuna salad. Really!

Serving Suggestion:
Grilled between two slices of sourdough, with dijon mustard, 2 slices of roma tomato and a nice slice of vegan cheese. (Note: I never buy fake cheese. I don't like it. I'd rather make my own. There are lot's of good recipes out there for nooch based cheezes, or if you have Cozy Inside, try using the Nutty Cheeze.)

Pattied up. You don't have to form these into patties, I just did it since it is a burger book:


Ready for grillin' on sourdough with a slather of dijon, some nutty cheeze, two slices of roma tomato and, of course, some extra Vegenaise:


After cooking:


Inside Shot:


Ingredients (makes enough for 4 sandwiches)
8 oz soy tempeh, crumbled into teeeny tiny pieces
1/4 cup sweet pickle relish
1/2 cup vegan mayonnaise (I use Vegenaise)
1/2 cup diced red onion
1/4 tsp dill
Salt & Pepper to taste

Directions
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Refrigerate until ready to use. You can use this on a sandwich, or on a bed of greens for a no-tuna salad

If making a melt, preheat your cast iron skillet or pan. To get the best browning without added fat and calories, spray the pan with nonstick spray, then cook until browned, applyin pressure from the top with a spatula, spray the top with cooking spray, then flip, and apply pressure until browned.
