It’s great with cannellini beans, which you will find in cans or jars at a deli. Sun-dried tomato paste has a lovely intense flavour – it’s a storecupboard favourite as it has so many uses.

Ingredients

  • 400g can or jar cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 300g jar good-quality tuna in olive oil, drained and flaked into large chunks
  • 1 small red onion, finely sliced
  • 12 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Large handful fresh flatleaf parsley leaves, roughly chopped
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 small lemons
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed or grated
  • 4 thick slices sourdough or rye bread
  • 3 tbsp sun-dried tomato paste

Method

  1. In a large bowl, mix together the beans, tuna, red onion, tomatoes and parsley.
  2. In another bowl, whisk together 2 tablespoons oil, the juice of 1 lemon and the mustard and garlic. Season, pour over the tuna and beans and toss together well.
  3. Heat a griddle pan until very hot. Brush the bread on both sides with the remaining oil and griddle for 1 minute each side, until golden with charred lines.
  4. Spread 1 side with the tomato paste. Pile on the beans and tuna and serve with the remaining lemon, cut into wedges, to squeeze over.
