Open toast tuna sandwich

Open toast tuna sandwich

This recipe is my contribution to the healthy toast recipes. It’s ideal for any day lunch or dinner.And as I always say I love colours in my food and I try to add more of colourful veggies. Food is accepted not only with the taste or aroma but also by how presentable it is.

I have served this as solid food with red team roast as sides , you can serve it the same way with any kind of roasts or as it is.

I will mention the recipe of red yam roast as well in the detailed recipe below. Let’s checkout the recipe and do let me know if you like the recipe.
