Here comes summer and therefore a smell of seafood and fish on every Maltese corner. But what if you are trying to follow vegan diet? There is a way to do it! Here is a recipe for vegan “tuna” sandwich made of butter beans and a few more ingredients. It will take you 10 minutes tops to make this sandwich, and it is suitable for people with plant-based diet. Very refreshing, on-the-go (or not) and great to eat in this summer heat! When I first tried it I could not believe the authenticity of it. It really does taste like tuna! Let me know if you agree with me on instagram @fit_mysena 🙂

1 tin butter beans, drained
