Mmmm… Tuna paté – a really quick and tasty lunch idea – lovely in a jacket spud, great with avocado, or delicious with a warm, crispy baguette…. equally good with or without capers….or try adding a few chopped olives as an alternative…..
1 can tuna in brine, drained and flaked
3 spring onions, chopped (or half a small onion, finely chopped)
1 table spoon pickled capers, drained
3 tablespoons cream cheese (or cottage cheese if preferred)
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons Greek yoghurt
Blend tuna, onions, cheese, olive oil and lemon juice until smooth. Season with black pepper to taste. Add the Greek yoghurt and blend until combined. Put into a bowl, stir in capers, add another twist of black pepper…. Voilà!
What could be quicker than that…. Why not rustle up a batch of Scottish Oatcakes…. to accompany it…..
