So- a few months ago I found out I was gluten intolerant. Gluten-free eating is not that hard- except when it comes to comfort foods for me. Mom made incredible tuna melts. And I was craving a tuna melt. I don’t like gluten-free bread- so what to do?!!!!
Well- it suddenly hit me: stuff a tomato with the tuna/mayo mix and bake it with cheese. Yeah! Here goes:
1 small tin of white tuna
2 medium sized tomatoes
1 tbs Mayonnaise (I use Spectrum as no added sugar)
Grated white cheddar
1/4 green pepper (optional)
4 green olives (optional)
1 dill pickle (optional)
1 tsp capers (optional)
Preheat the oven to 375 Fahrenheit (180 Celcius). Drain the tuna and mash up with a fork. Add the chopped up olives, peppers, pickle and capers. You can add anything you like in your tuna/mayo mix- I know some like to add celery, chives…etc… Add a bit of ground pepper. Add the mayo and mix well.
Cut the top of your tomatoes off, spoon out the seeds. Fill the tomatoes with your tuna mix. Sprinkle your grated cheddar on top of your tuna.
Put on your baking sheet covered with parchment paper and put in your pre-heated oven for 15 mins. Once the cheese is melted, switch your oven to the broil/grill setting until the cheese gets a bit crispy.
Then dig into your yummy gluten-free tuna melt!!!!!!
