I keep on looking for different ways to skip the bread and find other foods I can use instead for the things like this tuna spread. Obviously if you eat bread it will be a great idea to spread this tuna on top of freshly baked bun or a toast. But if you like me, and try to avoid eating bread to the minimum you can definitely try this recipe. Baby peppers are great swap for slice of bread. Simply stuff them with creamy tuna mixed with some onion, hard boiled egg, mayo and some spices and you have delicious crunchy “sandwiches” 😉
This stuffed peppers are also perfect healthy party snack, if you make a finger food party and you don’t mind a bit o fish. And who doesn’t like creamy tuna?
Addition of onion, mustard and chilli flakes makes it quite spicy and less insipid. And preparation is easy as ABC, there’s not much to say about it – you simply combine all ingredients and stuff the peppers. Couple minutes of work and you get colourful and crunchy breakfast or snack – much better than boring blob of tuna 😉
