This may be the lowest-spoon recipe I know that actually qualifies as a "recipe" rather than just "eating stuff out of a tin."

Pros: requires no cooking, can be prepared in under five minutes, made out of store cupboard/long-lasting ingredients, tasty, high protein and low glycemic load (useful if this meets your nutritional needs), limited washing up.

Cons: requires some chopping.

1 tin butter beans (lima beans)
1 tin tuna in olive oil
10-20g raw red onion ("several slices" works fine)
1 tbsp cider vinegar

Drain and rinse the beans. Chop the onion.

Tip the tuna (oil and all) into a large bowl and mash with a fork. Add the beans, onion and vinegar.

Stir. Eat.

Sounds lovely, and it seems like it could handle variations very nicely. If I had some sugar snap peas, I'd nuke 'em for 2:00 and then stir them in there. I could switch out lemon or lime juice for the vinegar. Lovely!

Sounds Good! My variation (without the carbs from the beans) Water packed tuna, drained, (or vac-packed) with a good dollop of dill pickle relish. High protein density and almost no carbs and only 200-225 calories for 6 ounces of tuna!
