A quick and easy, healthier spin on the classic spicy tuna roll that has all the taste without the fat or carbs.
You know that time when you really wanted sushi?
But then you remembered that you did not want a boring old healthy california roll, AND you just consumed 392 times your body weight in Christmas cookies, so you should probably lay off the carbs? Ya, that.
Well, have no fear guys, I’ve gotcha covered with this spicy tuna “roll” on a cucumber. Health!
“But Taylor,” you say, “spicy tuna rolls aren’t just laden with carbs, they are also fat-o-rama with all that creamy (and, ugh, so delicious!) Mayonnaise!”
Today, you guys, we are doing some serious trickery fo’ yo’ tastebuds and doing a ninja Greek yogurt swap. I promise they won’t know the difference. The only thing that will notice is your waistline.
Take that mayo. You lose.
Insert evil laughter and creepy finger twiddling here, just because you can.
The best part of these is that in only takes 5 minutes to get yourself from point A to spicy-tuna-roll-a-go-go land. I have no idea where that is, but you want to go there right? Yes.
Confession: these little puppies (tuna-ies?) ALMOST did not happen due to the fact that tuna was 22$/LB at my grocery store! I walked out of there trying to figure out how to break the news to Mr.FFF that we would have to sell the future baby FFF so that I could make this thang. Either that or ask him if he would still love me with one arm, as I would have to sell the other.
Luckily for the future rugrat, I found a fish market that allowed me to purchase the tuna without the selling of said baby FFF.
I am also happy to report that I am typing this with 2 hands, attached to 2 arms.
Let me just tell you guys, relief x 1000 over here. “Phew” is an understatement.
So, do you want to put your flippy floppies on and do the healthy-spicy-tuna-on-a-cucumber-roll-dance this NYE with me? Do you not know how to do it?
Side note: I do know that flippy floppies are mandatory.
