Tuna Melt

This is Tuna-melt the healthy way. I recently read an article on comfort foods that gave me a heart attack reading the ingredients. Here's a recipe make-over so you can eat a delicious tuna-melt sandwich with comfort :-)

  • 1 small can water pack tuna, drained
  • 1/4 cup soft tofu
  • 1/4 large onion - diced small
  • 2 Tbsp. black olive relish or tapenade
  • 2-3 Tbsp. hummus

Mix all the ingredients together. Serve as follows:

  • 4 bagel halves (whole grain), 1 avocado - cut into slices, 1 large fresh tomato sliced, broccoli sprouts, 4 slices of low-fat cheese or soycheese flavor of your choice
  • Preheat broiler.
  • Place avocado slices on the bagels, followed by a generous scoop of the tuna salad, tomato slices, broccoli sprouts, and then a slice of cheese.
  • Pop under broiler until the cheese is bubbly and browned.

Enjoy without any guilt as you eat all those healthy fats!!!
