Recipe: Asian Tuna Rice Paper Wrap


Everything tastes better with a little bit of an Asian flare. So I decided to cut the all flour tortillas for a 15 calorie rice paper wrap instead. It kind of tastes like a cheap mans sushi, but it is so damn delish.

What You Will Need:

– 1 can of tuna (I like white, because I’m fancy like that)
– Light Mayonnaise (this is a low fat recipe, but if you need the good fat stuff, you can substitute it)
– 1 green onion
– Black and White sesame seeds
– Chia seeds
– 1 Avocado
– Kale (or any type of lettuce. Kale is in right now and has a good crunch)
– A splash of soy sauce
– Cilantro (optional)

Directions:

1. Mix That Tuna

Drain the tuna, and add in, one tablespoon of light mayonnaise, with chopped up green onion, black and white sesame seeds, chia seeds, a splash of soy sauce and salt and pepper to taste. The green onion is for an extra crunch; alternatively, you can add pickles, cucumbers, or celery.

2. Build The Wrap

The round rice papers are usually easiest for non professional rice paper rollers. It’s taken me a long time to master the art, and I think I’ve finally got it! The first step to your rice paper, is to soak it in hot water for about thirty seconds until it’s mushy. Once done, place this on a flat surface to ensure optimal rolling. For a nice design, lay out the sliced avocado nicely, and place the kale or non fancy lettuce in the middle of the rice paper. Add tuna, and any other ingredients to the wrap. I am obsessed with cilantro, and it’s one of those things that you either love or hate, so add any additional greens or colored vegetables to make it filling and delicious.

3.Wrap The Wrap

Once all your ingredients are in your rice paper roll, lift the edge of the rice paper wrap closest to you, and gently fold it over the entire contents of the wrap. Tuck the filling in to ensure that everything stays wrapped tight. Fold in the ends and then roll it over one last time so it looks like a pretty little rice envelope. Like a tube shaped envelope.

Cut it in half, and post an Instagram of your healthy lunch, then you can dig in and enjoy!
