Do NOT unfollow! I assure you: this cheeezy, dilly-oniony Tuna Melt on perfectly grilled butter bread is 𝗔𝗟𝗟 𝗩𝗘𝗚𝗔𝗡.
As one of my favorite #vegansandwiches of all time, this JACKFRUIT melt makes my heart…melt. 😍
It requires lots of patience to make the perfect Tuna texture, so don’t expect to whip this up in 5 mins or less. I know there’s plenty of #veganrecipes out there for jackfruit tuna, but this one needs some prep work, marinating, crisping, and cheezy melting time. Trust me, it’s worth it!
My number one go-to for the cheese is @daiyafoods slices (particularly their cheddar and/or American). It’s melts the best & nobody wants a grilled cheese that doesn’t melt out the middle when sliced, duh.
Amazing tuna-texture, extra dill-filled, and delicious…the bread even makes that butter toast “crunnnch” sound when you bite into it (and explodes with cheezy tuna flavor right after).

- 3 slices vegan Cheese
- 2 pieces white bread

- Drain jackfruit in a strainer, and rinse under cold water for one minute (takes the sweetness away).
