Recipe Ingredients for Pita Paninis with Tuna, Sprouts, Zucchini and Avocado Cream

80 g avocado, pitted and peeled
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tbsp lemon juice
130 g (1 can) tuna
120 g (2) whole wheat pita
30 g spinach
60 g zucchini
80 g tomato

Recipe Directions for Pita Paninis with Tuna, Sprouts, Zucchini and Avocado Cream

  1. Prepare Avocado Cream: In a medium bowl, add avocado, garlic and lemon juice. Mash with a fork and mix well. Set aside.

  2. Divide tuna evenly among pita halves, then top with equal amounts of sprouts, zucchini and tomato. Finish by spreading 1 1/2 tbsp Avocado Cream in each half.

  3. Toast pita halves in a toaster oven for 3 minutes, until cut edges are just beginning to brown. (Alternatively, you can place pita halves on a baking sheet and bake in a 350?F oven for 8 minutes or until edges are just beginning to brown.) Place a clean, dry washcloth on top of each hot pita half and press down gently with your hand, making sure to apply even, smooth pressure so paninis are compressed instead of smashed. Serve immediately.
