This is what got me through the first 2 weeks of my low-carb journey. It’s very tasty and filling as well. If you like things spicy, add even more spice than I indicate below. A little Chipotle Tobasco is also good in this spread. This is very good on my Almond-Arrowroot Crackers or dipped up with celery or carrot sticks. This dish is suitable for all phases of Atkins and other Keto diets.
1 6.5 oz foil pouch oil-pack tuna (if using canned, the 5 oz. can will do fine)
1 stick butter, unsalted, softened (4 oz.)
½ c. chopped parsley
1 tsp. fresh lime juice
¼ tsp. onion powder
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper (more if you’re adventurous) or ¼ tsp. my Seafood Spice Blend
DIRECTIONS: Combine all ingredients in the bowl of a food processor or blender and pulse until well mixed. Garnish with a sprinkle more of the spice blend. Serve with celery sticks or your favorite low-carb crackers.
