Full Time Meals: Tuna Melt Pittas

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes


1 tin of tuna in spring water
1⁄2 tin of sweetcorn in water
1 small red onion
4 tbsp light mayonnaise
3 large handfuls of grated mozzarella
4 pitta breads

For the veg sticks:

2 carrots
1⁄2 cucumber

(Serves 4)


  1. Whack the oven on at 200C.
  2. Drain the tuna and sweetcorn and then add these to a bowl (just 1⁄2 the tin of sweetcorn). Peel the onion and cut it in half, then roughly slice it and add this to the bowl, along with the mayonnaise, grated mozzarella and a bit of pepper. Give it a good stir.
  3. With a knife, cut a slit down the long side of each pitta bread (so it opens like a pocket) and spoon the tuna and sweetcorn mixture inside each pitta. Pop the filled pitta pockets on a baking tray and bake in the hot oven for around 10-12 minutes until the pitta is crisp and the mozzarella is melted and oozing.
  4. While the pittas are in the oven, get your veg sticks ready. Peel the carrot and then cut this and the cucumber into sticks, about the size of your finger.
  5. Take the pitta pockets out of the oven and cut each one in half. Pop them on a plate, along with the carrot and cucumber sticks, and tuck in!
