Preparation

  • artichoke hearts – drained and chopped
  • paprika, onion, celery – chopped
  • touches – mix the ingredients and let it sit while cooking for flavors to have time to balance out
Cooking

  1. On medium heat, lightly dry-fry (no oil added) the chopped vegetables for 2~3 minutes with the garlic powder and herb mix.
    The purpose is not to cook the vegetables, but to remove excess moisture from the vegetables to prevent them from making the spread too soggy.
  2. Pour dry-fried vegetables on a dish and spread to let it cool.
  3. Put fully drained tuna and chopped artichoke hearts into a large bowl and mix well with all the ingredients.
  4. Add salt and pepper to your taste while mixing.
