1 small onion, very finely chopped
1 cup (250 mL) grated carrot
1 small red pepper, very finely chopped
1 can (284 mL) sodium-reduced condensed tomato soup
1 tbsp (15 mL) balsamic vinegar
2 tsp (10 mL) each dry mustard powder and chili powder
1 tsp (5 mL) each Worcestershire sauce and honey
2 cans (170 g each) Clover Leaf Flaked Light Tuna in Water, drained
4 toasted whole grain hamburger or hoagie rolls
1/2 cup (125 mL) reduced-fat shredded Cheddar cheese
2 green onion, chopped (optional)



  1. Heat the oil in a skillet set over medium heat. Add the onion, carrot and red pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until softened.
  2. Stir in the soup, 1 can of water, vinegar, mustard powder, chili powder, Worcestershire sauce and honey. Bring to a boil. Simmer, stirring often, for 8 minutes or until thickened.
  3. Stir in the tuna and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 to 3 minutes or until heated through. Spoon the tuna mixture over toasted buns; top with cheese and green onion (if using) . Makes 4 servings.


Use a food processor to help chop the vegetables super-finely so that your kids won’t notice them
