Veganizing the Famous TikTok Tuncado Recipe with Smoked Tofu

Hi Savvys,

The TikTok Tuncado recipe has taken the internet by storm with its unique combination of tuna, avocado, and seasonings. I wanted to veganize this recipe with smoked tofu!  In this blog post, I’ll show you how to make a vegan version of the TikTok Tuncado recipe using smoked tofu instead of tuna and made gluten free using The Thin Artisan Flatbread from Little Northern Bakehouse.  I also used furikake to add some fishiness to the smoked tofu that you would usually find in canned tuna.  My toddler and infant loved this “tuna” salad as much as I did and it will definitely be added to the lunch rotation!

Now set forth and be savvy!

~Makes 2 servings of tuna


  • 2 Gluten Free Flatbreads of your choice – I used 1 package of Thin Artisan Flatbread from Little Northern Bakehouse
  • Block of Smoked Tofu – 180 g
  • 2 tbsp vegan mayo
  • 1 tsp furikake
  • 1 tbsp vegan pesto (store bought or homemade)
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1 Roma tomato, sliced


  1. Shred the smoked tofu on a box grater
  2. Add in the vegan mayo and furikake, mix until well combined
  3. Cut each flat bread in half
  4. Spread the pesto on 2 of the halves of the flat bread
  5. Divide the tofu mixture in half and spread on top of the flatbread topped with pesto
  6. Add half of the sliced avocado to each flatbread
  7. Add half of the sliced tomato to each flatbread
  8. Close the sandwich with the other half of the flatbread
  9. Press in a panini maker for a minute, rotate then press for another minute to get the criss-cross grill marks
  10. Serve and enjoy!
