I love it when a plan comes together! I was hungry at lunchtime yesterday, so I opened my pantry. I stared at the shelf for a good minute…eyes glazing over. “There’s got to be something here, some combination of flavors that will fill and delight me” I thought. And bingo! Inspiration struck and I made these Italian Tuna Wraps.
Okay, this is pretty much just tuna salad in a lettuce wrap. But the addition of white beans makes it filling, contributes a creamy texture, and ups the fiber. A handful of chopped parsley adds freshness. This recipe serves two for lunch. Or just do what I did, and put it in the fridge for tomorrow’s lunch. It will still taste great the next day!
Italian Tuna Wraps
- 1 can of tuna
- 1 can of white beans
- juice of 2 lemons
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- salt and pepper
- pinch of garlic powder
- 1/4 cup roughly chopped parsley
- Boston lettuce leaves (or other lettuce leaves of choice) for wrapping
- Drain the can of tuna and put it in a large bowl. Drain the beans, rinse them in a strainer and then add them to the tuna.
- Toss the tuna mixture with the lemon juice and olive oil. Season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder; toss again. Add parsley and toss.
- To serve, wash and shake dry the lettuce leaves, and place a large spoonful of tuna in the lettuce. Wrap and eat. Couldn’t be easier!
