Tuna and white bean gratin. 9/30/20

Tuna and white bean gratin with a tossed green salad

Another new dinner entree tonight. This is a mixture of canned tuna, white beans, refried beans, garlic, Gruyere, and panko breadcrumbs. The original recipe calls for cream and milk and for purée-ing the beans. We were able to get by with a little liquid from the beans and melting the refried beans into the dish for a creamy consistency. We also added mushrooms to help with umami. It worked pretty well but we felt it was still missing that low note you want in a dish. Maybe more cheese or olive oil would have helped. I think we will make this again but keep experimenting with the dish.
