This recipe was inspired by a tuna dip that my mum taught me to make when I was little. If you’re feeling adventurous, you might like to add a teaspoon of Madras curry powder to the tuna filling to spice it up.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
6 slices square wholemeal bread, crusts removed
1 small onion, roughly chopped
1 x 95 g can tuna in olive oil, drained
125g cream cheese, softened
9 chives

Equipment

Quantity Ingredient
sharp knife and chopping board
large mixing bowl
fork
scissors
rolling pin
food processor
small palette knife
plastic wrap
toaster

Method

  1. Use a rolling pin to flatten each slice of bread.
  2. Ask a grown-up to help you put the onion into a food processor and blitz it to a paste. Once the grown-up has removed the blade from the processor, tip the paste into a large mixing bowl.
  3. Place the drained tuna into the bowl and use a fork to break it up into small flakes. Add the cream cheese and mix it together well. Use the scissors to snip the chives into the bowl.
  4. Use a small palette knife to thickly spread the mixture onto each slice of bread, trying not to go over the edges. Starting at one edge, carefully roll the bread up tightly like a Swiss roll. Place the rolls onto a chopping board with the seam underneath.
  5. Ask a grown-up to help you wrap the rolls tightly in plastic wrap. Twist the ends of the plastic wrap to keep them secure and place them in the fridge to chill for 1–2 hours.
  6. Take the rolls out of the fridge and remove the plastic wrap. Ask a grown-up to help you cut the rolls into 1 cm slices and arrange them on a large serving platter.
