  • 1/4 cup basil fresh
  • 1 avocado ripe
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp avocado oil or extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 stalk celery medium, chopped
  • 1/8 red onion medium, chopped
  • 2 cans tuna packed in water, drained
  • black pepper ground, to taste
  • optional mix-ins or garnishes: chopped pine nuts, walnuts, sesame seeds, diced tomatoes, cilantro, poppy seeds, hemp seeds


  • In a food processor, blend basil, avocado, garlic, sea salt, lemon juice, and oil until smooth. Switch processor off once ingredients are well incorporated. Note: If a food processor is unavailable, manually mash and combine ingredients with a fork in a bowl.
  • Add chopped celery, red onion, and canned tuna fish to food processor. Pulse minimally, 2 to 3 times, to distribute ingredients. Alternatively, manually mix in celery, onion, and tuna fish until combined.
  • Season with ground pepper to taste and garnish as desired.
  • Serve in a bowl alone, accompanied with veggies to dip, spread on keto bread, or on lettuce leaves as a low carb wrap.
