Tuna fish wrap and Eggplant in Parsley Sage Rosmary and Thyme compote

About: zoom to picture in my gallery

This is easily the tastiest dish i've  made all year.  Fresh tuna, leftover from yesterday's grilling, was pâtéd and wrapped with smokey cheese and lettuce and then drizzled with my mayo.  The base of the compote i made yesterday from steamed  artichoke hearts and turnips.  Today i sauteed that with minced onions, parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme and then mixed in the chunks of grilled eggplant.  

It was like totally delicious!

Strangely enough i lost 3 pounds on this meal.  That was probably mostly due to the fact that i did a lot of walking yesterday ... what's with the woods and then a long afternoon walk in Seattle.  I parked up by Pike street then walked to China town and back ... part up hill.    But then too i was strangely not all that hungry after being satisfied with my own meal.  I wasn't even all that tempted to eat-out in Seattle which would certainly have been my pattern.   I'm baching it this weekend coz Denise is visiting in LA.

Looks like a wrap & a pile to me! Is the pile what goes inside the wrap?

Visually it may need some work ... i'll make another one today and maybe get a cross section of the wrap.

Probbly the tastiest looking that you posted all year. You forgot to put a smidgeon of nutmeg and cinnamon in the eggplant like we did when we were kids!!! I would skip the mayo on the tuna as well. Nice meal :)))
Well the nutmeg is a real good idea ... i don't know about the cinnamon ... i'll try it today.   The mayo is my my own creation: all it has in it is egg, grape seed oil, and seasonings ... not as evil as the stuff you get in a jar ... without it the tuna would be like totally dry.

The picture is fine, the question remains.  Is what's in the burrito the same stuff that is on the plate?  The recipe/formula is not entirely clear to me. I will probably try it next week.


No, no, no ... the wrap contained: "fresh tuna, leftover from yesterday's grilling, was pâtéd and wrapped with smokey cheese and lettuce and then drizzled with my mayo".   It's my tasty variation on the classic tuna salad sanwich.   

For today i got some yellow tail tuna which i intend to grill up today for lunch.  Tomorrow i'll make another wrap .   My variation on the eggplant today is going to be a tarragon broccoli puree.  Gonna serve that with my grilled tuna and some soup ... pictures at 11.
