  1. Toast as many slices of French bread as you need. Meanwhile, lightly mash the beans. Pour 2 tbsp of tuna oil over the beans, then flake in the tuna. Gently mix in the parsley, and season to taste.

  2. When the toast is ready, drizzle it with a bit of the tuna oil. Top the toast with a slice of tomato and top the tomato with a spoonful of bean mix. Scatter over the sliced onion. (Any extra bean mix will keep in the fridge for up to 2 days.) Drizzle the toasts with a little more oil (use olive oil if you run out of tuna oil) and serve.

I left out the tuna and used dairy free (vegan) cheese so that the vegans could eat this tasty, light meal.
