Quick Recipe: Wasabi Tuna Wrap

There are two condiments items that work as excellent flavor enhancers; wasabi sauce and salsa.  Wraps aren’t anything new when it comes to the world of healthy eating.  Using whole grain tortillas in place of bread not only helps to cut back on carb intake but, when filled with things like hummus in place of mayo, fresh veggies and protein they make for a tasty meal option or pre workout snack.  I have never been a huge fan of tuna salad but, the convenience tuna packed in water offers makes it a hard item to resist experimenting with, and one way I love to prepare it is simply with a dollop of wasabi sauce which complements the tuna adding a solid punch of flavor.

Make two wraps

5 oz can tuna packed in water, drained
Two whole grain or whole wheat tortillas
2 tbsp hummus
One medium vine ripe tomato
Salt and pepper

Simply combine the drained tuna with two tablespoons of Woeber’s (or your favorite brand) wasabi sauce.  Evenly spread one tablespoon of hummus onto each tortilla, on one side even spread out the spinach, divide the mixed tuna into two portions and spread on top of the spinach, top with fresh tomato slices, season with salt and pepper and enjoy!

  1. I'd never have thought of wasabi with tuna but, yes, you are right, it turns a so so sambo into something special.
