Ingredients

Tuna and Beans:

2 cans white albacore tuna in water

1 can cannellini beans

2 cloves garlic, finely sliced or minced

1/2 onion, finely chopped

Olive oil

Grated Pecorino Romano cheese

Sea salt and cracked black pepper

3 ounces hummus

Sesame oil

Side Salad:

1 carrot, shredded

1/2 cup green pitted olives

1/2 cup sweet gherkin pickles, sliced or chopped

Balsamic vinegar

Directions

  1. For the tuna and beans: Drain the tuna, put in a bowl and set aside. Open the beans but don't drain.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, caramelize the garlic and onions together in some olive oil. When browned, add the can of beans and saute. Cook for 2 minutes, and then add a handful of Pecorino Romano cheese, 2 pinches salt and 5 turns of the pepper mill.
  3. Add the tuna to the bean mixture. Give a quick toss in the skillet, and then put the contents into a bowl.
  4. Scoop a cup of tuna and beans and put on a plate. Add the hummus as a side. Drizzle sesame oil on top of the hummus, and add grind some pepper on top.
  5. For the side salad: Toss the carrots, olives and pickles in a bowl and drizzle with olive oil. Add salt and pepper to taste and balsamic vinegar to your liking. Serve on the side.
