Tuna White Bean Stuffed peppers

Make the most of the best days of summer with light & easy summer lunches. Lunches that are quick, fresh and delicious will make it easier to stick to a healthful diet. Utilize convenience foods. Some of my favorite easy to prepare items are: • Canned tuna, canned salmon or sardines. • Store prepared rotisserie chicken • Bagged salad kits • Pre-cut fruits and veggies found in the produce department • And lower fat deli meats like turkey and chicken.

Ingredients
  

  • 2 Bell peppers any color (green, red, orange or yellow)
  • 1 5 ounce can Chicken of the Sea Solid White Tuna in water
  • 1 cup Goya Organic Cannellini beans drained and rinsed
  • ½ sweet onion minced
  • 2 gloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons capers
  • ¼ cup light mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

Instructions
 

  • Preheat broiler in oven. Place peppers on a baking sheet, broil for about 5 minutes, turning frequently or until soft.
  • Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a small skillet over low-medium heat. Add onions and garlic and cook until soft and translucent. Add in beans, cook for about 2 minutes and remove from heat and place into a bowl.
  • Add tuna, capers and light mayonnaise to the bean/onion mixture. Using a fork, break up the tuna. Stir in lemon juice, parsley, ground black pepper and Italian seasoning.
  • Once the peppers are ready and you’ve removed them from the broiler, allow them to cool until you’re able to handle them with your hands.
  • Cut the peppers in half, remove seeds and lay the halves on a dish. Fill each pepper with tuna/bean mixture and enjoy!
