I never used to like tuna.It smelled funny and was always drenched in mayo (ewww!!!) However, now that I have “grown up” a bit and expanded my foodie horizons, I have discovered the oh-so-versital world of canned tuna. Disclaimer: Some health enthusiasts would caution against tuna because of mercury levels found in some. I think it’s up to you, it is a staple in my pantry!!
Since I don’t get home until well after 8 pm, I need something that is quick, protein packed and yummy! I found that this combo, which at first sounds strange, is strangely comforting and filling.
Tuna Mango Magic
1/4 cup black beans, rinsed (or chickpeas like in the photo)
1/2 cup mango salsa (or any kind of salsa, I just like a hint of sweet!)
1 can tuna in water, drained
Add all three ingredients in a microwave safe bowl (not plastic) and mix gently. Heat in microwave for about 90 seconds. Stir and enjoy!!!
On a bed of spinach (see above)
In a whole wheat, low carb tortilla
On a slice of Ezekial Bread open faced
On a piece of Boston or Romaine lettuce (think lettuce wraps)
Or just straight out’ the bowl!
Should you desire a little extra somethin’ on there, here’s some ideas:
