Tuna Lettuce Wraps
Do you find yourself hungry but got home late or running back out the door in 15min?
We feel that.
This is our go-to protein- and veggie-packed dish that’s great for a snack, or for a mini-meal-- perfect for those post-TriForce belly rumbling nights ;).
Prep Time: 10 min | Yield: 3-5 Lettuce wraps
1 can of Tuna
1 ripe avocado or 1-2 tablespoons of mayonnaise
4 squirts of lemon juice
⅛ of a large onion
Steak Seasoning or salt to pepper to taste
⅓ of a Bell pepper*
¼ of a tomato or 4-6 Grape Tomatoes*
*optional, but highly recommended. Or, try cucumbers and carrots, these also pair nicely with tuna.
PRO TIP: For those jam-packed weeks, take 30 minutes on the Sunday beforehand to wash and cut up a variety of vegetables. It makes quick dishes like this even quicker!
(If using an avocado): Slice avocado longitudinally in half to the pit. Separate the avocado and scoop out the filling with a spoon into a bowl.
Smoosh the avocado until smooth.
Drain the can of tuna and add to the bowl.
Whip the tuna and avocado (or MAYO) together.
Dice the onion and tomato, then add to the bowl.
Add the lemon juice and spices, then mix thoroughly.
Cut the bell pepper into thin strips.
Generously scoop the tuna-veggie mixture onto a piece of romaine lettuce.
Add 1-2 strips of the bell pepper.
