You can buy freshly baked whole-wheat and whole-grain boules (basically, round loaves of bread) in many supermarkets and bakeries.
Ingredients

uncooked tuna

20 oz, 4 (5-ounce) steaks

table salt

½ tsp

black pepper

¼ tsp, freshly ground

olive oil

1 tsp

tzatziki sauce

1 cup(s)

whole wheat bread

8 slice(s), or whole-grain about 3 x 5 inches, toasted

basil

20 leaf/leaves

uncooked red onion(s)

1 small, thinly sliced

roasted red peppers (packed in water)

7½ oz, drained

Instructions

  1. Sprinkle both sides of the tuna with the salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the tuna and cook until browned on the outside but still pink in the center, 2 – 3 minutes on each side for medium-rare.
  2. Meanwhile, evenly spread the tzatziki on one side of each of the toasted bread slices. Place 5 basil leaves on each of 4 slices of bread; top each with one-fourth of the onion slices, one-fourth of the roasted red peppers, and a tuna steak. Place the remaining 4 bread slices on top of the tuna. Cut each sandwich in half with a serrated knife and serve at once. Yields 1 sandwich per serving.
Notes
Have someone slice it for you and keep it in the freezer, taking out a few slices, as you need them.
