I was craving some tuna yesterday, but am a little tired of just putting it on salad, and was really trying to escape my toasted bread thoughts. There was some leftover sliced yellow squash in the fridge – what a GREAT platform for the tuna, tomatoes, and cheese !
Low Carb Tuna Melt
1 yellow squash, sliced lengthwise
1 can of tuna
2 Tbsp Mayo
1/2 small onion, diced
2 thick tomato slices
2 Tbsp mozzarella, grated
Kosher salt and cracked pepper to taste
Combine tuna, mayo, and onions. Normally I would add a large stalk of celery (diced), but we were out.
Sautee the squash over med high heat for a minute or two with a bit of salt and pepper. Don’t let it get mushy! Arrange squash on a baking pan into two “sandwich sized” platforms.
Mound half the tuna mixture on the squash platforms. Layer on the tomato, followed by cheese.
Broil for about 2 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
