canned tuna in oil as I prefer the flavour. I use a
can of cannellini beans for this recipe, which I rinse and drain well. You can also use dried beans which you have soaked and cooked. You could also use a shallot or 1/4 of a red or yellow/brown onion if you are unable to find spring onions/scallions.
