New & Improved Tuna Wrap

29 Jun

I love watching Paula Deen.  I don’t love her cooking, but I love HER.  She is so funny, so sweet, so southern and cute.  She reminds me of Mrs. Pots (Beauty & the Beast).  I can’t bring myself to make any of her recipes, though, because it could quite possibly lead to cardiac arrest.  Nonetheless I DVR her shows all the time because who doesn’t love watching a cute old southern lady make meals with enough sugar and butter to feed an army?  So without further adieu, I’d like to share with you a direct (dirty) quote from the celebrity chef herself that made me rewind and playback more times than I’d like to admit:

“I like the bone in my fish.” – Paula Deen

Yummy.  Speaking of fish, I invented a tuna wrap yesterday that came out so incredibly delicious.  Ever get the urge to just throw some good ingredients together and see what happens?  Well that’s what I did and the result was better than I ever thought it would be.

I “fried” up 3 tbsp egg whites in a mini pan with canola oil spray and threw it on a whole wheat wrap.  I then sliced up a tomato and added that to the wrap.  On top of that went two romaine lettuce leaves.  I then drained a can of tuna and mixed in 1 tbsp of sweet  red pepper hummus, a quirt of lemon juice and a dash of salt and pepper.  Onto the lettuce the tuna went and then I rolled it on up and zapped it in the microwave for 15 seconds while I sliced up a granny smith apple.

Oh. My. Lord.  It was amazing.  I loved the crunch of the lettuce and the warm egg whites.  The sweet red pepper hummus really made this wrap a 10 in my book.  The apple on the side gave the meal a sweet touch.  It was so simple to make – it will definitely be one of my go-to lunches from now on.

Sorry Paula, ain’t no bones in this fish.
