Green Monster Tuna Salad Roll-Ups
These fun, easy-to-make roll-ups come together in five minutes flat—and are loaded with brain-building ingredients like tuna, avocado, whole grains, and veggies.
½ cup frozen baby peas, rinsed under hot water for 30 seconds
1 ripe avocado, peeled and pitted
1 8-ounce can water-packed tuna fish*, drained
3 tablespoons low-fat mayonnaise
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 whole-wheat lavash rectangles (9½x12 inches), cut in half crosswise (or other similar flatbread)
8 thin slices ripe tomato
1 cup shredded carrot
Place peas in a medium bowl. Using a potato masher, crush peas until mushy. Add avocado and crush until chunky-smooth. Add tuna and mash until well flaked. Stir in mayonnaise and lemon juice; season with salt and pepper.
For each roll-up, place 1 portion of lavash on a clean work surface. Spread a quarter of tuna mixture over surface. Arrange 2 tomato slices along bottom portion and top with ¼ cup shredded carrot. Roll up the lavash, cut into 4 pieces and serve. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
* Young children should eat low-mercury fish such as shrimp, salmon, canned light tuna, pollock and catfish. Albacore, or “white,” tuna has a higher mercury content than canned light tuna.
