    Anyone have some suggested recipes / meals that include canned tuna?

    I've made sandwiches in the past but since they always include mayo I feel like the benefits are pretty minimal.

    Do you guys use room temp, hot, or cold tuna with mac + cheese?

    I tried it and thought it was just incredibly gross

    Chicken + macncheese is another story though

    I usually just eat it straight or with a little mustard... as long as it's totally drained then the taste doesn't bother me.



    I found some light mayo at Trader Joes that actually has no saturated fat and just poly and mono unsaturateds (made with sunflower oil i think) so I've started using that stuff in my tuna guilt-free.

    yeah it is, I'm pretty sure it has MSG though if my memory serves me right

    the best part is that crumb topping for the pasta - that's the key :x: just need a recipe for that

    Classic: Olice oil, red wine vinegar, rice and tuna.

    Here's some others I've collected:

    Tuna-Chili Soft Tacos
    In a small bowl, combine a six-ounce can of light tuna in water (always get light tuna packed in water and always drain) and one tablespoon of chili sauce. Spread two tablespoons of fat-free cream cheese on two flour tortillas (one tablespoon of cream cheese each). Top the cream cheese with the tuna mixture and roll up the tortilla.
    Totals: 404 calories, 45g carbs, 41g protein, 6g fat, 3g fiber

    Spicy Tuna Burger
    Take a six-ounce can of tuna and mix it with three tablespoons of seasoned dry bread crumbs, one egg white and one-half teaspoon of hot sauce. Shape the mixture into a round patty, about one-inch thick and four inches wide. Spray a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set the pan over medium-high heat. Add the tuna patty and cook four minutes per side, until it is golden brown and cooked through. Place the burger on a bun and top with two tomato slices. Now, that's a healthy Whopper!
    Totals: 361 calories, 41g carbs, 41g protein, 4g fat, 3g fiber

    Curry Tuna Pockets
    Scramble a six-ounce can of tuna with one-quarter cup of crushed pineapple, one tablespoon of fat-free mayonnaise, one tablespoon of chopped pecans and one-half teaspoon of curry powder. Spoon the mixture into two pita-pocket halves.
    Totals: 388 calories, 43g carbs, 34g protein, 9g fat, 3g fiber

    Tuna Waldorf
    In a large bowl, toss a six-ounce can of tuna with one diced Granny Smith apple, one tablespoon of fat-free mayonnaise, one tablespoon of chopped walnuts and one-half teaspoon of ground cumin. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Spoon the mixture onto two slices of pumpernickel bread.
    Totals: 450 calories, 54g carbs, 35g protein, 11g fat, 9g fiber

    Tuna-Artichoke Salad
    In a large bowl, commingle a six-ounce can of tuna, a 14-ounce can of artichoke hearts in water (drained and halved) and one tablespoon of fat-free mayonnaise. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve on a three-ounce bagel.
    Totals: 492 calories, 68g carbs, 44g protein, 5g fat, 2g fiber

    Smoked-Tuna Spread
    Throw a six-ounce can of tuna, one tablespoon of fat-free sour cream, one-half teaspoon of liquid smoke seasoning and one-half teaspoon of dried onion flakes into a small bowl and whip together. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve on two pita pockets.
    Totals: 482 calories, 72g carbs, 42g protein, 3g fat, 3g fiber

    Tuna Relish Sandwich
    Blend a six-ounce can of tuna, one diced tomato, one tablespoon of fat-free Italian dressing and one tablespoon of minced green olives. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve on two slices of whole-grain bread.
    Totals: 322 calories, 39g carbs, 35g protein, 3g fat, 7g fiber

    Tuna Burrito
    Mix 1 can of tuna with 1/3 cup seasoned breadcrumbs, 1 tbsp chili seasoning, and 1 large egg. Form into 2 patties and grill for about 3 minutes on each side. You can also put them on your Foreman grill for 5 minutes. While the patties are grilling put two medium whole wheat tortillas in the microwave for 15-30 seconds. Wrap the patties in the tortillas and grub down! You can add beans, cheese or salsa too.

    Tuna Cakes
    Mix 2 cans of tuna with ¾ cup oatmeal, 5 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce, 2 Tbsp non-fat mayo, and a dash of pepper. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Make mixture into burger sized patties and place on hot skillet covered with Pam. Let cook on both sides until brown.

    Tuna Melt
    Mix 2 cans of tuna with 2 tablespoons of non-fat ranch dressing and 2 hard-boiled eggs. Place on two slices of whole-wheat toast. Put one slice of cheese on top of each and microwave until cheese is melted.

    Starfish tuna in the little blue baggies ftw. Shit tastes good straight from the packet.

    I usually put some good farmers cheese (Boursin) on some bread, top it with tuna, then some sliced pickles. Fucking delicious.
