unspecified-5We can thank one of the Mums in our team for this little number. She works in an office and this has become a reliable go-to for a healthy and easy lunch.

Now tuna & beans every day for a week doesn’t sound compelling right? But the trick is to make the base (as per the recipe below) and then each day add something a little different to keep it exciting. Here, we’ve used some pear that was lying around and some goat’s feta, but other ideas might be some sliced avocado, crisp rocket, or a boiled egg. Hunt around in your fridge – you’ll be amazed what you’ll find!

And be sure to seek out sustainably-sourced tuna. Gotta keep the fish stocks around for future generations!

Serves 1 for a work week.


  • 2 - tins cannellini beans, drained
  • 2 - tins tuna, drained
  • 1 - handful of almonds, roughly chopped
  • 1 - handful of parsley, roughly chopped
  • 1tbsp - olive oil
  • 1tbsp - apple cider vinegar
  • salt & pepper to taste


  1. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl and keep covered in the fridge.
  2. Each day, transfer some to a lunch box along with your yummy extras – feta, chopped veggies, lime wedge, boiled egg etc – and then be the envy of the office!
