Is it possible to have creamy tuna without the saturated fats in mayonnaise? You bet! So creamy and delicious you won’t believe it.
    

  

1 5-oz. can of tuna packed in water
½ cup of canned cannellini beans, rinsed
1/2 tsp of extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp of freshly squeezed lemon juice
salt & pepper to taste

In a small Cuisinart add all ingredients. Blend until smooth. If you find it is too dry add water until you reach the consistency you are looking for.
To jazz it: try adding one or all of the following – pickles, olives, cilantro (be creative)

Healthful Tip: This is two servings as a meal and 4 servings as a snack. Because of the beans, this is a little too starchy to have as a sandwich. I recommend serving with one of these; handful of carrots, on top of lettuce or with a handful of whole grain crackers.
