I have never been to Key West but I have heard a lot about its beautiful palm lined streets, it’s distinct mixture of cultures and the island is not only home to a strong seafood scene, but a tantalizing fusion of cuisines. At night, the streets lite up with vibrant sidewalk cafes that lure in passersby with delicious scents of their specialties. Live music and hopping bars are the perfect pairings to watch the sunset into the Gulf of Mexico.
The Florida Keys is home to five districts, each with their own personality and attractions that make visitors feel like they are a world away. The southernmost paradise, Key West, is just miles from Cuba and is home to an enviably temperate climate and a delicious array of fresh seafood set to a beautiful backdrop. Bringing together a multitude of cultures that have made Key West home during its history, Key West’s food scene has delicious flavors, like African and Cuban, that are difficult to find anywhere else in the US.
Being a vegetarian, I can’t enjoy Key West’s seafood bounty, but here’s my version of vegan ‘tuna’ salad sandwich wrap. The mock tuna is made with chickpea flour & mashed chickpeas. For the salad I used mashed avocado instead of mayonnaise and it was creamy & yummy.
