I’m not vegan, but I’m not too keen on eating fish eggs. The idea of making appetizers with caviar seems festive and special, so I think I’ll try some next time I have an occasion.

It gets very good reviews, is made from seaweed, and mimics the real thing.

I tried a homemade version of vegan caviar at a party a year ago. It was ok....but I have never had regular caviar so I can’t compare. Ita about fish eggs & sodium tho...I’m not keen.

You can make caviar with eggplant, which is what I was expecting to see your post was about.

I have no desire to make it. I just want to open a jar, and I’m curious about the seaweed version.

My first thought was Texas caviar, which is flippin' awesome and my wife makes it all the time in the hot summer months.

I don't like caviar not because it's fish eggs but because it tastes gross to me, I like all kinds of other eggs. The kelp based caviar tastes equally gross to me so I hope that helps.

Buy some and taste it, it's cheaper than the real thing, it keeps longer too.

I have tried the seaweed based caviar and I like it a lot! It has that briny taste, although not as much as the real thing. Also not as salty as fish eggs. I use it on top of my carrot "lox" with some capers and dill, yum! In the past, Ikea sold a version of the plant based caviar that was good, I don't know if they still carry it.
