The Big Tuna

by Aggies Kitchen on February 23, 2012

I was obviously very hungry when I made my tuna sandwich earlier this week. I mean, look at this beast.

It was perfect, and definitely hit the spot. I’m such a sucker for tuna sandwiches. Something about them makes me crave potato chips too, I just need some crunch when I’m eating tuna I guess. Which is why I decided to load up this sandwich with crunchy vegetables the other day…to get my mind off the crunchy “other stuff”. It worked, for the most part.

The best part of this beast of a sandwich is how GOOD it is for you. Look at all those veggies! And that bread…it’s a Smart Bagel. Good stuff (100 calories, 6g fiber, 5g protein), look for them. They will most definitely make you feel smart, I promise.

(disclaimer: your sandwich will not look pretty after the first bite. sorry.)

The Big Tuna
Recipe created in Aggie’s Kitchen

1 whole wheat Smart Bagel (or bread of your choice)
1 can of tuna, drained well and dressed with a little mayo, mustard and lemon pepper seasoning
alfalfa sprouts
thinly sliced cucumber
sliced tomato, lightly sprinkled with sea salt and black pepper
red leaf or green leaf lettuce

Assemble your sandwich and enjoy!

Where oh where did you find sprouts? Stores near me aren’t carrying them at all at the moment :(

I am heading to the grocery tomorrow and will look for the ingredients to this!!! I STINK at making myself a decent lunch…. and this will definitely cure that. I LOVE that you paired it with grapes (no points for those of us on WW) and a water with lemon. PERFECT lunch!

I think adding sprouts to a sandwich makes it over the top! We don’t eat much tuna from a can….we catch them instead ;)
