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…


Top with tonnato…


Cut your eggs up and bung them on top…


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