½ cup green onions, chopped
Optional spices: ½ teaspoon curry powder, chili powder, or cumin powder
4 whole wheat buns, split
4 leaves lettuce
1 tomato, cut into thin slices

- In a mixing bowl, combine ¼ cup mayonnaise, egg white, tuna, breadcrumbs, green onions, and other optional spices. Mix well. Divide mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping each portion into ¼-inch-thick patties.
