FFF: Sushi Sandwich

on August 24, 2012

Hello Parents,

Today’s lunch idea inspiration comes to us from Babble, a network of bloggers that post about many different topics, including food, crafts, shopping, and more. If your kids like fun lunches, Babble has tons of ideas in their Family Kitchen blog, like today’s idea of “Sushi” sandwich. See below for instructions on how to make these sandwich rolls as posted on Babble.

“Sushi” Sandwich {Recipe & Photo compliments Sara Moulton for the Grain Foods Foundation}

Makes 8 pieces “sushi,” serving one

What you’ll need:
One 3-ounce can solid white tuna packed in water
1 tablespoon low fat mayonnaise
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
2 slices white or whole wheat bread
Two 4-inch long x 1/4 inch wide carrot sticks (or 1 tablespoon coarsely shredded carrot)

What to do:
1. Drain tuna and mash with a fork. Stir in mayonnaise and lemon juice.

2. Trim crusts from bread and roll out bread using a rolling pin until it is flattened to about 1/16 inch. Spoon one half of the tuna in a log down the middle of each slice of bread, arrange a carrot stick or half of the shredded carrot in the middle of the tuna and roll up the bread tightly to enclose the filling.

3. Cut each roll crosswise into 4 pieces and arrange cut side up in one layer in a container. Cover tightly.

Variation:
Spread a little mayonnaise or mustard on the bread. Stack a thin slice of turkey and a thin slice of Swiss cheese on a work surface; place a thin strip of pickle or red bell pepper at one end of the stack and roll the ham and cheese around the pickle. Place the roll on the bread; roll up and proceed as above.

Fun Learning!
