Easy Delicious Tuna Spread (non-dairy)

READY IN: 18mins
Recipe by tanya_g

The simplest part about preparing for any dinner party! Whenever I take it to a barbecue or potluck it disappears in a flash. Plus it keeps well in the fridge and is totally addictive. Can be served on crackers, as a spread, or in a small bowl as a side-dish. (Cooking time is for boiling eggs.)

I love, love, love this!! I'm always losing my copy of the recipe, but thankfully it's easy enough to find :)

I like to make it by roughly chopping eggs etc then giving it a blitz in the food processor until it's a delicious, creamy spread. I also add parsley sometimes too. Fantastic with vegie sticks!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Using a fork, squash the egg thoroughly until uniform in texture and colour.
  2. Add sandwich tuna.
  3. If using tuna in water, add olive oil; if using tuna in oil, leave it out.
  4. It's possible to use chunk tuna instead, you just have to put more effort into squashing it well.
  5. Add the chopped onion, mix and squash a bit with the fork-- I find this releases the juice from the onion and adds flavour without giving it that'onion-y' taste.
  6. Add mayonnaise and mix well.
  7. Serve in a small bowl and garnish with parsley as desired.
  8. Also works well on crackers or as a spread.
  9. Keeps in the refrigerator for at least a week-- I haven't tried longer than this because it always gets eaten!
