  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

Method

  1. Boil the potatoes in a large saucepan for 20 minutes until soft, then drain and mash. Transfer to a large mixing bowl. Fry the spring onion in the butter for 1 minute until soft and add to the potatoes with the mustard, parsley, flour and peas and mix. Add the egg yolk and tuna and mix well. Season.

Serving tip

The less water you use when cooking peas, the less vitamin C is lost. Steaming helps to conserve this vitamin. When boiling frozen peas, add enough water to cover, bring to the boil and then cover and simmer for 3 minutes. To microwave 227 grams (8oz) of frozen peas add 15ml (1 tablespoon) of water, place in a non metallic container and cover. Cook on full power for 4 minutes (750W) or 4 1/2 minutes (650W).
