Everybody has those days when you are busy and you don´t have so much time to spend in a kitchen. Or maybe you are just not in a mood for cooking. Even I have sometimes those busy or even lazy days but as I don´t like almost any junk food or instant food, I have always other alternatives. The healthy ones of course 🙂
Spreads are always a great option. No cooking, not plenty of time of preparation, not many dishes to wash and always many alternatives and variations of this food. If you are at least a bit creative you can prepare spreads from almost any kind of food and for those who are not, no worries, get inspired, maybe you will love this tuna spread as I do 🙂 For this recipe I used homemade mayonnaise but if you have no time for it then add the bought one. If you are seeking for mouthwatering and coating sensation over your tongue then don´t be affraid to add there chopped pickles. Trust me, it changes everything. My “secret” ingredient (that is not secret anymore 😀 ) for this spread is : flaxseed! It helps to reduce risk of cancer, stroke, diabetes, heart disease, ..etc.. So if you weren´t sure of this recipe before, now you have to be.
