So yeah, I remember saying I’d never do one of these posts because well, I don’t cook and I don’t really have much to offer you guys.
However, yesterday, a friend of mine asked me what I was doing for lunch. I know she expected me to name off a take-out/drive-thru place (as that is usually what I do for 2/3 meals), but I surprised her by saying that I was making tuna. Then she surprised me by asking, “How do you make your tuna?”
Wait, there’s different ways to make tuna??
When I rattled of the ingredients, she was genuinely interested and said that it sounded like something she’d like.
Well I’ll be…..I, Helly, shared a recipe????
So I decided to go out on a limb here and share it with you all too just in case anyone else would like a different spin on tuna. Or maybe you already make it the way I do. Which in that case, is the reason why we’re friends.
Okay, so here’s what you need. And bear with me because I have no idea how these WIAW posts are supposed to go.
2 cans of tuna (or however much you want–I typically use two, serves about 4)
3 hard boiled eggs (you can use just the whites if that’s your thing)
Pickles (preferably sliced b/c you’ll chop ’em)
Jalapeños (whole or pre-sliced, and from the can for easy chopping)
Step 1: Drain your tuna; put in medium size bowl
Step 2: On a cutting board, slice/chop your eggs (Leave only egg whites if that’s your preference. I used the whole egg). Pour the egg pieces in the tuna bowl.
Step 3: Chop one pickle slice (or more depending on how much pickle flavor you want)
Step 4: Chop your jalapeños (I use the entire small can. I like spicy.)
Step 5: Mix pickles and jalapeños in to the tuna bowl and you’re done!!
Some of my family members like putting in a spoonful of mayo, but I don’t. This is actually the healthiest Helly gets, lol!! You could also put in a little mustard but again, I like it just the way it is.
Eat straight from the bowl or–
- Make a sandwich
- Roll in a tortilla for a tuna burrito
- Put on top of a cracker for a quick snack
Never thought I’d see the day, but there you have it! My first What I Ate Wednesday 😀 Whatdya think??
–Do you like tuna? How do you prepare it?
–Do you like jalapeños? I love ’em!
