Hello I want to tell everyone that the faux tuna recipe in this book tastes like real tunafish. It's a mixture of sunflower seeds, walnuts, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, kelp powder. Its amazing someone figured out these simple uncooked things will taste like tuna salad.
It's from this book which I have no ties to:

Haven't tried that one, but can highly recommend the tempeh tuna salad in quick and easy vegan comfort foods.

I'd guess it's to substitute the richness from the fish, as well as to balance the sunflower seeds to have more depth of flavour. They are also a bit softer and more crumbly than sunflower seeds. I've definitely made a tuna salad with sunflower seeds and no walnuts though, and I remember it being pretty good. I'm partial to shredded and drained jicama though.
