These cute ships are perfect for her lunch box!
Here it is; my notes are in italics:
adapted from Disney’s The Magic Kitchen Cookbook : Pirate Island Tuna Boats
1 small bell pepper, quartered, white membranes removed and seeded – 4 to 8 mini bells would be perfect for this!
1 cucumber, cut lengthwise, seeded and chopped (optional)
1 can water packed tuna, drained
1-2 Tbsp sweet pickle relish
Dash of garlic powder
2 Tbsp mayonnaise – use your favorite brand of Mayo, or for an egg-free mayo try Follow Your Heart’s Vegenaise
1 Tbsp yellow mustard – French’s and Kroger’s Yellow Mustard are gluten-free
1 small bag of Lay’s Potato Chips*
*If you don’t care for the Potato Chip-Tuna Combo, toasted corn tortillas or gluten-free toasted pita bread wedges would make a great substitute.
In a small bowl mix together tuna, mayo, mustard, relish and garlic powder until well blended.
Using a small spoon, fill the bell pepper “shells”. Top each boat with cucumbers and a fun shaped potato chip.
Serve! Place any unused tuna in a sealed container in the fridge. It should keep for 48 hours.
Makes 4 small boats.
