So it's a cheap source of protein--what is your favorite thing to do with it? Preferably HEALTHY ideas :)
1. mixed into pasta with steamed veggies and 1/2 cup marinara sauce
2. mixed with black beans and topped with mozzarella cheese
3. dumped into low sodium soup
I make tuna mac-n-cheese. With the seasoned tuna (I like the thai flavour) I'll use it to flavour a drained can of white kidney beans or a quinoa salad.
I place the can in the fridge to chill---in the mean time I finely dice bell pepper, green onion (scallions), and parsley. Drain the can, then break up the tuna, add the diced veggies, enough mayo to make everything hold together but not soupy.
Slice fresh plum tomatoes, some lettuce leaves, a shmear of mayo on 2 slices of multi grain bread and i have a delicious sandwich.
I also use the same mixture ontop of a summer salad for a cool, light lunch or dinner
