We love this recipe for lunch - it's deliciously light, balanced, and so quick to make!
Recipe type: Entree
Serves: 2 servings
  • ½ Cup uncooked whole wheat couscous
  • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • 1 can tuna, drained (I use solid white in olive oil, and save the oil for another use, or I even use some of the oil in place of the mayo on occasion)
  • 1½ tablespoons mayonnaise (regular, light, or vegan – I have tried them all)
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • ⅜ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ to ½ teaspoon dried dill, to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon sugar (or sweetener of your choice)
  • ½ teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Fresh ground pepper, to taste (optional)
  1. Cook the couscous according to the package directions. This literally takes just 5 minutes.
  2. While that is cooking, run the peas under some warm water to quickly thaw them.
  3. In a small dish, whisk together the mayo, mustard, onion powder, dill, salt, sugar, lemon juice, and water.
  4. Take the lid off of the couscous, give it a quick fluff with a fork, and stir in the peas and mayo mixture.
  5. Using your fork, crumble the tuna in and give everything another stir to combine. Dish up into two bowls and serve!
