    INGREDIENTS

    • Zest and juice of 1 lemon
    • 30 g punnet, finely chopped chives
    • 2 x 400 g cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
    • 1 egg
    • 1 garlic clove, minced
    • 4 tbsp cake flour
    • 3 x 170 g shredded tuna in brine
    • Lemon wedges
    • Mayo for dipping (optional)

     

    METHOD

    COMBINE the zest and juice of the lemon, chopped chives, cannellini beans, egg, garlic, cake flour and  tuna.
