The first thing is to peel the potatoes and cut them into small pieces to cook with a little salt. While the potatoes are cooking, we must chop the onion, parsley and garlic to add them to the boiling water. Simultaneously, in a pot mix the tuna and eggs, and add salt and pepper. When everything is mixed, we add the vegetables.
