Add this recipe to your binder.

To make the white bean and tuna pâté, simply whizz the ingredients together in a small food processor or with a handheld blender. For a textured pâté, crush the ingredients together with a potato masher. Divide the pâté between little pots and accompany with your choice of breads, crudités, cheese, fruit etc..

Tip: Add your child’s favourite cheeses, vegetable crudités, bread and cold cuts here to dip in the pâté and make a personalised lunchbox. Add a frozen bottle of water or juice to the lunchbox. It will keep everything cool as it defrosts through the morning. The pâté will keep in the fridge, covered, for up to 4 days.
