TUNA MELT PITA PIZZAS


~ Today's Parent

6 oz. can solid white tuna in water, drained
1 c. canned chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1 T. mayonnaise
1 T. olive oil
1/8 t. pepper
1 green onion, finely chopped and divided
4 whole wheat pitas
2 c. baby spinach
1/2 c. grated cheddar

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a bowl, mix tuna, chickpeas, mayonnaise, olive oil, pepper, and half of the green onion. Place pitas on baking sheet and top each with 1/4 of the spinach. Spread tuna mixture over spinach, then sprinkle with cheddar. Bake 8-10 minutes or until cheese has melted. Garnish with remaining half of green onion and cut into wedges.

Notes: We used dried beans we made in the crockpot and popped in the freezer. If you'd rather skip the pizza effect, then you can just fold these up as a pita wrap or stuff the tuna mixture into pita pockets.
