These melts are satisfying with 27 grams of protein from the tuna and white beans. They are nourishing and can be ready in about 15 minutes or less - the perfect go-to meal!
2 (5oz) cans Wild Planet Albacore Wild Tuna
⅓ cup green Olives, diced
⅓ cup roasted Red peppers, diced
¼ cup Red onion, diced
¼ cup Mayonnaise
¼ cup Dijon mustard
¼ tsp dried Oregano
¼ tsp black Pepper
1 cup White beans
1 loaf of crusty bread
1 Tomato, sliced thin
4 slices Swiss cheese
1 Tbsp Cilantro, chopped
Preheat the Oven: Set your oven to broil low and adjust the rack to the upper-middle position. Prepare the Tuna Mixture: In a bowl, combine the drained tuna, white beans, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, pepper, oregano, chopped olives, red peppers and onion. Mix until well incorporated.
Slice the bread and tomato. Place the bread slices on a baking sheet and lightly toast them under the broiler for 1-2 minutes on each side, until they're just golden brown. Place the tomato on the bread. Spread the tuna mix generously over the tomato.
Top the melts with Swiss or cheddar cheese slices. Place the assembled open-face melts back under the broiler for 2-3 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbling and golden brown. Let them cool for a minute, add cilantro garnish and serve.
