Tuna melts might be your ideal lunch, but if you're eating low carb, you may think you're out of luck. Happily, there's a way to enjoy this classic sandwich without all the carbs: on sweet potato toast. The recipe below will show you how.
To make this recipe perfect, slice your sweet potato into 1/2-inch slices, which will come out of the oven crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. Then top them with homemade tuna salad and a touch of cheese, and broil them to ooey-gooey perfection. Lunch is served!

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Brush the sweet potato slices with oil on both sides, place on a nonstick baking sheet, and roast for 20 minutes, flipping over halfway through the cooking.
Meanwhile, combine the tuna, mayonnaise, celery and onion in a bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
