There are always a few things in your pantry that seem to just sit there for months- maybe even a year. Canned tomatoes, kidney beans, tuna fish… At a party over the holidays I hesitantly tried some tuna pate on a cracker. ‘ Tuna pate?’, you ask. ‘Really?’ Well, yes, actually. It’s really quite good. And a great dish to make when you are down to the last items in the pantry. And it’s cold out. And you’re too tired to go to the grocery store.
2 cans tuna fish in olive oil – drained
1.5 tablespoons room temperature butter
1.5 tablespoons cream cheese
1 tablespoon capers
1 teaspoon onion powder
lemon juice to taste
a few dashes of white pepper
a few dashes of paprika
1 dash cayenne pepper
Put all ingredients in a food processor- or use an immersion blender like I did. Process until all ingredients are fully incorporated. This tastes great when eaten immediately on crackers – and even better if you refrigerate for a few hours.
