Tuna sweetcorn pitta pockets recipe

RECIPE OVERVIEW

Did you know that fish such as tinned tuna or salmon should be included in the lunchbox at least once a week? This filling works just as well in a wholemeal wrap or bagel as it does in a pitta pocket.

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 0 minutes

Ingredients

Serves: 2 people

  • 4 tbsp Mayonnaise
  • 1 tin No Drain Tuna
    (120g)
  • 100 g SuperValu Sweetcorn 326g
    drained and rinsed
  • 2 - SuperValu Wholemeal Pitta Bread

Method

  1. Flake the tuna into a medium-sized bowl and use a fork to break up any big pieces. Add the sweetcorn and mayonnaise and stir until evenly combined, then season with a little salt and pepper. Gently fold in the sprouted seeds (though you can of course leave them out if your kids don't like them).
  2. Cut the pitta breads in half and gently prise them open to create a pocket. Spoon the tuna filling into the pocket, but don't stuff them too much or the bread is liable to crack or tear. Pack into an airtight container or zip-lock bag.
  3. Pack the pitta breads with fresh fruit, such as a sliced apple, a peeled and segmented clementine, a small banana or a handful of grapes, a yogurt pot for the dairy element of the lunch and a bottle of cold water or unsweetened fruit juice.
