You can use this as a spread or a dip.
Here are the basics:
Some tuna (I like Italian oil packed for this, but any works)
A can of cannelinni beans, drained
A clove of garlic made into a paste
Olive oil and/or water
Salt and pepper
Whirl the beans in your food processor till they are almost a paste but still a tiny bit chunky. Add maybe 1T of lemon juice, and the garlic. Whirl to combine. Taste. Add more of each to taste. Add 2T of olive oil or water and process until smooth (you might need more oil or water to get the texture you want).
Add the tuna, whirl to combine. You want the beans to me a paste but the tuna to be a bit chunky. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Add-Ins -- add them at this stage unless you want them processed to a finer consistency.
Other herbs and spices as you see fit -- add them toward the beginning of the process.
Less is not more. More is more and more is fabulous.
