Unfotunately I can't help with the Tuna pate. I hope you find what you're looking for. Angie, I would be interested in the chicken and bacon pate if you're willing to share :) Thanks

Of course!

8oz chicken livers (I used a 250g tub from the freezer section - 99p I think)
1 clove garlic, crushed
salt and pepper
vlf fromage frais
1 chopped onion
1/2 tsp mixed herbs
4oz chopped bacon

onion + bacon + herbs, fry til soft
add the livers, season, and cook for 7 minutes

transfer to a food processor, and blend until smooth

add the fromage frais 1 spoon at a time until you get the right consistency.

chill and store (covered) in the fridge - makes PLENTY tastes exactly like the 'real thing' and is free on red or EE :D

tuna pate - kinda

i don't know if this is what you are looking for, but i make my own 'kinda' tuna pate using the laughing cow light from the HEX A.
I just take a drained can of tuna and mix it up with the cheese triangles, add some finely chopped spring onion, some black pepper or anything else free that i feel like adding.

hope this helps
This is scrummy take a lemon scoop out inside. Mix in a bowl a tablespoon of lemon juice VLF philladelpia cheese little black pepper and a tin of drained sardines. Put back in the lemon skin... Think its free on Red

Here you go:

Tuna pate
- 1x Tin of tuna
- handful of chives
- 1/2 tub of quark
Blend all together and chill.

Or try this:

Tuna Stuffed Tomatoes
- 8 tomatoes
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 198gm (7oz) can tuna in brine, drained
- 5tbsp very low fat cottage cheese
- 2tsp lemon juice
- Few shakes of vinegar
1.Cut the tops off the tomatoes and set aside. Scoop out the tomato seeds and discard. Season inside the tomato cases with salt and pepper.
2.Mix together the tuna, cottage cheese, lemon juice and vinegar.
3.Divide the tuna mixture between the tomato cases, filling each one generously.
4.Place the tomato lids on top of the stuffing, pressing down gently to secure

Both are syn free on original or extra easy.

Makerl Pate

I know of a Mackerel Pate, :)

1 x John West tin of Makerel in mustard
2 x tin of Makerel in brine, drained
1 x tub of quark
dash of tabbasco if wish
or season with what else you like experiment on your own tastes

Blend altogether in a blender, use how you wish, I have also used makerel in tomato sauce but the mustard is better.
