THE Premier Low-Carb store .. .. AND Meeting Place

Monday, July 8, 2013


I was hungry one day and just stood at the counter making this up on the fly.  I was surprised at how tasty this spread is.  Better than low-carb crackers would be using English cucumber slices.  Even although the photo doesn't do it justice, this is a delicious, quickie snack for two.  

1 can flaked tuna (170 g)
4 oz regular cream cheese (125 g)
1/2  cup grated Monterey Jack cheese (125 mL)
1/2  tsp dried parsley (2 mL)
1/2  cup grated Monterey Jack cheese (125 mL)

Open can of tuna and pour off water.  Press tuna with back of spoon to drain further.  In medium bowl, place cream cheese.  Place side plate over top and microwave cream cheese 50 seconds.  Stir in tuna, 1/2 cup (125 mL) grated Monterey Jack cheese and parsley.  Place in small 4-inch (10 cm) square casserole dish.  Sprinkle with remaining cheese and a little extra parsley, if desired.  Microwave 35 seconds or until heated through and cheese has melted on top. Serve with sliced cucumbers or low-carb crackers for a super treat.  It may also be used on low-carb bread or toast.
