A Skinny Dip

A few weeks ago, I wanted to make a healthy snack for a dinner party I was invited to. I came up with this tuna pate, which went down like a house on fire.

Tuna Pate with Crudités:


1 Tin of Tuna, in Brine
1 Tin of Butter Beans, in Brine (no vinegar added)
A Handful of Flat Leaf Parsley
Juice of 1 Lemon
A Good Glug of Lemon Infused Olive Oil (I used Willow Creek - this is to allow ingredients to blend well together and for flavour)
A drop of Smokey Sesame Oil (for flavour)
A Good Shake of Herbal Salt
A Good Sprinkle of Paprika
Cracked Black Pepper to Taste


Drain tuna and butterbeans (you may want to reserve some of the liquid to help with the blending if necessary)
Place all ingredients in a blender
Blend well, until smooth
Taste, add extra lemon juice, sesame oil, lemon infused olive oil, herbal salt, paprika, pepper until you are happy with the flavour
Serve with a selection of crudités such as carrot, cucumber and celery sticks; baby corn or nachos
