This is a variation on the Atkins Italian Tuna Pâté recipe in the book Dr. Atkins New Diet Revolution. This wonderful spread is , I do believe, what got me through Induction. I have since modified the recipe a bit and think it is even better than the original. This is very good on flax-Parmesan crackers or I sometimes dip celery or carrot sticks into it. I suspect it would be good served on cucumber slices with a small black olive on top for parties. 🙂 This dish is Induction friendly, for certain! Sometimes I like to add 8-10 pitted black olives during the blending, but that is not included in the nutritional info below.
