Kids are great lovers of tuna, so why not combine their great with rice for a soon to be new favourite!



tuna rice
Delicious on its own or with hidden veggies


This simple recipe is easy to whip up, loved by kids and once they are used to it, the perfect place to hide all manner of bitty pieces of vegetable.

One of the best parts of it is that t is fast and easy to prepare, so perfect for those days when you've been so busy with your kids that you haven't organised lunch yet as these ingredients are usually sitting in the pantry waiting for such an occasion.

Preparation Time: 2 minutes
Cooking Time: 8 minutes
Makes: 2-3 servings

Ingredients
1 cup of rice (uncooked)
2 cups of water
180g tin of tuna in olive oil



tuna rice
Simple ingredients


Method
Bring water to the boil, then throw in the rice and reduce to a simmer. Let cook, stirring gently from time to time so as not to have rice stick to bottom of pan. You can add more water as needed until the rice reaches a thick, gooey consistency (this will only happen with the shorter grains, so if you are using long grained rice or basmati, just make sure rice is cooked until soft.

Optional Step: If adding hidden veggies, chop them up into tiny pieces just after you've put the rice on to boil. Suggestions which work well with this recipe include broccoli cut into florets, carrots and zucchini. Once they are cut up, put them into the water with the cooking rice and allow them to steam/cook at the same time.

Once rice is cooked, take off the heat and allow to cool. You could do this in the pot, or if you are hoping to serve it faster you could transfer to a wide bowl to allow the air to help cool it down faster.

Once cooled, open your tin of tuna and pour tuna and oil into the mix. The oil imparts a lovely flavour in the rice and helps it to stick together more. Use a fork to break up chunked pieces.

Best served cold


Serve straight away (warm) or refrigerate and serve later when cold. This dish tastes best served cold.
