Makes one lunchbox!
‘Sushi’ sandwiches make for a fun lunch! This recipe provides an excellent source of fibre and a good source of protein.
8 slices sandwich wholemeal (or white) bread, crusts removed
1 small carrot, peeled, grated
1 small Lebanese cucumber, peeled, cut into long strips
200g can tuna in oil, drained, flaked
2 tablespoons whole-egg mayonnaise
2 to 3 iceberg lettuce leaves, washed, dried, finely shredded
1 small avocado, cut into long strips
1. Place bread onto a flat surface, remove crusts. Use a rolling pin to flatten bread slightly.
2. Place tuna and mayonnaise into a bowl.
3. Mix gently to combine. Arrange lettuce leaves over the flattened bread leaving a 2cm strip free of filling along 1 edge and then top the lettuce with the grated carrot, julienned avocado and cucumber and a 1cm width of the tuna and mayo.
4. Roll up to enclose filling. Cut each sandwich into 3 rounds.
