Anyway...we were also big fish eaters AND enjoyed caviar on special occasions. So...what to do?
(no, literally go to Ikea)!
After doing some Googling...I found that Ikea sells a Seaweed Topping, for only $1.99 that resembles caviar.
Ok...so it isn't Osetra but I feel a lot better eating it and knowing that no animals were harmed in the "harvesting".
We also used to love tuna fish sandwiches. So I took to the task of trying to create a vegan tuna. And well, first attempt, not too bad. I used chickpeas as the base and added the usual ingredients of canola mayo and dill relish. I added a little tahini and some kelp granules but I think I am going to get some other sea vegetable and try again.
It looks pretty yummy with the little dollop of caviar on top:
