Tuna and Sweetcorn Sandwiches will always hold a place in my heart, but being vegetarian meant that I had to track down an alternative when cravings hit. This veggie tuna absolutely hits the spot — the tangy lemon, spring onion and celery give it it's flavor and the overall texture of the spread is absolutely perfect. If you want it to have a fisher taste, try adding dried nori sheets at the blending stage. Serve with soft wholegrain bread and fresh greens for a vegetarian tuna and sweetcorn sandwich!
