World's Most Fabulous Tuna Sandwich

2 slices seeded Rye bread
I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Spray

Spray each side of both slices with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter.

Toast the bread in a skillet. An Iron skillet is wonderful for this, but any skillet will work.

1 can chunk light tuna in water
2 Tablespoons sweet pickle relish
Drain the water out of the tuna and add the relish.

1 tsp. Marmite
Spread it out thinly on one slice of the rye toast. Marmite has a strong flavor so it really has to be spread thinly in order to avoid over-powering the other flavors. Marmite adds B-vitamins that are often missing in a nearly vegan diet.

Miracle Whip
French's Spicey Brown mustard
Miracle whip is better than mayonnaise, because it is much lower in fat. So, spread the Miracle Whip on, any amount you like. You can measure it precisely, or just slather it on. Then drop some mustard on top of that, also any amount you like. I would not want to overpower the other flavors with mustard, just enhance them.

Add a handful of Organic baby Arugula and top it with the tuna, then close your sandwich.

There you have it, you eat with your eyes first, so cut it in an attractive triangle and slowly enjoy each bite.

Note: Traditionally the Miracle Whip would have been mixed into the tuna, like a tuna salad, before making the sandwhich. To my mouth, however, the tuna robs the miracle whip of its creamy texture, so I prefer to spread it on the bread so I can actually taste it and feel it on my tongue when I'm eating it.


  1. Looks so awesome! I never would have thought about the marmite. I have started really loving arugula but can't figure out what to do with it sometimes. This is very nice. Love you lots.

  2. Thank you for your kind comment. I use the marmite a lot, for the B vitamins... I did not like the taste much at first, but I'm learning how to use it with my other food.
