#431 – Bean and Tuna Salad Lunch

#431 - Bean and Tuna Salad

This salad came together quite by accident with a few pantry staples and the lovely broad beans that have been frequenting my veggie box recently. A rather happy discovery on my part that I’m sure to repeat often this Summer.

Today’s Lunch:

  • Bean and tuna salad with tuna, broad beans, red kidney beans and spring onion tossed with a dressing of capers, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper,
  • a slice of brown seed loaf and
  • some baby tomatoes.

#408 – Tuna and Tomato Pasta Lunch

#408 - Tuna and Tomato Pasta

This pasta sauce is a great pantry staple creation: a box of passata, a tin of tuna and a handful of salty capers cooked together for a few minutes and then spooned over pasta. You can completely change the flavour by adding (think chilli, olives and anchovies) or subtracting an ingredient or two.

Today’s Lunch:

  • Wholewheat penne topped with a tuna, caper and tomato sauce and
  • some grated Parmesan style cheese.
