Skinny coodles with tonnato

This little supper is part of my New Year’s diet plan. Tonnato is a tuna based sauce that the Italians slather over veal usually. This recipe had piqued my interest. However, the veal had to go as it’s not an ingredient I can pick up easily, and YummaNumma is all about simple suppers for busy people. So I created this slimming recipe… coodles (cucumber noodles), deliciously soft boiled burford browns, tonnato sauce and crisp capers.

To make the tonnato you need (this will make masses but it’s a great alternative to salad dressing so it’s useful to have extra hanging about):

  • 1 tin of tuna
  • 2 anchovy fillets
  • 2 tsp of capers
  • 3 tbsp of mayonnaise (or greek yoghurt if you are feeling healthy)
  • zest and juice of 1 lemon

Extras to complete the masterpiece include:

Number one – boil your eggs for 6 minutes.

Then spiralise your cucumber and set it aside. Make your sauce by blitzing all the tonnato ingredients together until it forms a smooth pale pink sauce. All that’s left to do is put it all together. Start with coodles…

Finally, crisp up some capers in a frying pan and pop on the top. D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S
