Baby Carrots alla Tonnato

baby carrots and tonnato dip

I am only supposed to eat half this amount of tonnato with the baby carrots and put the other half away for later.

I have never been able to snack on carrots. Somebody told me dunk them in peanut butter, bleaghh my mouth kept expecting apple and getting carrot. But you know what's good, carrots dunked in tuna salad. Or it started as tuna mushed together with greek yogurt, and then I thought how good would this be all tonnato-style with capers and anchovies. And see, I got flaxseed oil in there too.

1 can Italian tuna packed in olive oil
1/4 cup greek yogurt
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon flaxseed oil
1 tablespoon capers
4 anchovies
baby carrots

Puree all the ingredients except obviously the carrots in a food processor. My rocket blender comes with a smaller cup I don't know what for, I guess it's for making tuna smoothies.

Eat with baby carrots or any other vegetables.
