Nouveau Tuna Wrap

Admittedly, I am a total creature of habit. I could wear the same style jeans and t-shirt practically every day, drink coffee out of the same mug, and write with the same pen (I’m looking at you, Pilot G2!) I tend to be particular about what it is I’m using, but once I find my favorite, it becomes hard to use anything else, so I buy several. Some might call it a rut, but I disagree. After all, aren’t the most successful people in the world prone to wearing the same outfit every day? Or eating the same meals?

For me, this flatbread wrap falls into that category: it’s a meal I could eat again and again, without ever getting bored of it. Tuna joins forces with flatbread in my ultimate go-to lunch wrap, inspired by the pans bagnats of southern France. This portable salad wrap nixes the mayo and lightens way, way up for the perfect lunch or post-workout dinner. All I need to do when I get home from that yoga class is blanche some asparagus, crack and peel a hardboiled egg, et voilà! Dinner is served. Sometimes I cook enough asparagus for several days worth of flatbread wraps, if I’m on my game.

The beauty of this little wrap, and so many other recipes here, is its versatility. Are you all out of tomatoes, but have some roasted red peppers? Add ‘em. Asparagus season is over? Try the green beans that look so good at the store instead, and steam them until tender. Hate capers? Use a couple olives or cornichons in their place. Tuna goes well with almost everything savory, and this flatbread wrap proves it. You may just want to have one every day, like me. And who could blame you? At 6 WW® SmartPoints® value per serving, it’s a winner!

Grilled Tuna Melt with Asparagus

Tuna, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways….often I go through waves with my love affair with tuna fish. Mostly I don’t think about it. I go about my days and weeks not giving it a single thought. I make my flatbread pizzas, my wraps, my scrambled eggs, salads, and everything is fine. But then, one day, I’ll be sitting somewhere… I’ll get a little hunger pang, and BAM: I need tuna fish! Nothing, absolutely nothing else will satisfy like a tuna melt. I must make one that very instant. So I run to the store, I grab a couple cans, and I make the best, most beautiful tuna melt that knocks that desire of the ballpark. Honestly, not one other meal at that moment tastes better. Then, almost as quickly as I remembered, I forget that tuna ever existed in the first place, and I go back to my usual food routine.

But why should I or anyone just give up on tuna, just like that? What’s tuna ever done to me, except quench a deep tuna thirst? This year, I’m committing to adding more tuna to my weekly flatbread regime. It’s a good source of vitamin D, an excellent source of niacin and protein, low in fat, and it tastes awesome. Paired with flatbread, it makes the perfect light lunch or dinner. Crispy and toasted on the outside, warm and melty on the inside, it’s just perfect.

Spring is just about here, and that means those little tender baby asparagus spears are popping up in the stores around me, so they must be for you, too. The asparagus gives this flatbread tuna melt more texture, in a sandwich that’s fun to take to work and eat with or without a cup of tomato soup. Just steam them a bit in a pan of hot water until they are fork tender and bitable. Make asparagus extras to throw into other flatbread recipes; you’ll be very glad you did. I know I’m making smarter choices when I eat at more fruits and vegetables every day, especially when they’re different ones. I really can’t think of a better spring lunch, then first of the season asparagus and a homemade tuna salad on grilled flatbread.
