Whole 30 Keto No Cook Tuna Pasta

by KetoDietApp.com

Step 1Drain and rinse the palmini noodles. (Palmini is a pasta substitute that is made out of a natural plant known as hearts of palm. You can find all about palmini in this post.) If you don't like serving these noodles cold, you can optionally gently heat them up in a non stick pan for 2-3 minutes, or in a microwave for 30 to 45 seconds.

Step 2Drain the tuna, reserving the oil and flake into big chunks.

Step 3In a bowl, combine the tuna, capers, lemon zest (fine for a more delicate taste), olives and half of the basil. Add the drained palmini pasta.

Step 4In a small bowl, use a fork to whisk the lemon juice with the olive oil until slightly emulsified.

Step 5Drizzle the lemon-olive oil mixture over the tuna and toss the pasta with the tuna mix. You can use the one from the jar or use bottled extra virgin olive oil for best quality. The one from the jar will be saltier though.

Step 6Season to taste with cracked black pepper and divide between two serving bowls. Serve with remaining the torn herbs and any optional extras such as halved cherry tomatoes, chilli flakes and pine nuts. Store in a container in the fridge for up to 2 days.
