Tuna, Apple, Green peas and Hummus Sandwich / Healthy Sandwich

This is a delicious and nutritious sandwich prepared using Tuna,Apple, Green peas, Lettuce, Hummus and Bread.

Sandwich is such a versatile recipe where food such as vegetable, meat, seafood or cheese are stuffed in-between two bread slices. Personally, I love my sandwich with lots of veggies along with any type of meat or egg. Today's recipe is a delicious healthy sandwich in which I have included veggie, fruit and seafood. A glass of fresh juice and this healthy sandwich makes a balanced meal to start a wonderful day. 

Ingredients used for this recipe :

Tuna is usually canned in edible oil, in brine or water and in this recipe, I have used Tuna which is canned in water. The addition of green peas made the sandwich nutritious and the sweet and sour taste from the red apple gave a lovely flavour to the sandwich. The quantity of hummus is purely one's choice. The addition of more hummus gives a delicious creamy texture so adjust according to the preference. Preparing hummus is quite easy and all you need are chickpeas, lemon juice, garlic, Tahini, cumin and salt. I will be posting hummus recipe soon. Alternatively, you can use store bought hummus which is widely available in supermarkets with lots of flavours. There is no specific measurement for lettuce leaves so use it accordingly. I love adding extra lettuces to my sandwich :) And the final ingredient is bread, I have used brown bread which can also be substituted with any type of breads. I did not include salt and pepper in this sandwich but you can add according to your taste bud. 

OH YES! You can do variations..... 

Many variations can be done to this simple healthy sandwich by including more veggies like grated carrots, boiled potatoes, cherry tomatoes, avocado and herbs like parsley, chives, etc. To make it flavoursome, spread mint chutney on the toast and then place lettuce leaves. 
Don't like seafood ? Then, just replace tuna with chicken. Trust me, it will be equally delicious. 

Ingredients :

1 Canned Tuna 
1 Apple, Medium sized 
1/4 Cup Green peas, cooked 
1/4 Cup Hummus 
Fresh Lettuce leaves 
4 Brown bread slices, Toasted

Method :

Drain liquid from the canned tuna and transfer it to a bowl.

Take one toasted bread slice, place the fresh lettuce leaves and evenly spread the prepared tuna mixture. 

Cover it with another slice of toasted bread and serve. 

Repeat the same for the remaining slices.
