Quick Tuna Rice Recipe

My brother in law in Sydney made this dish for me one time and I really enjoyed it. I have modified it to suit the preferences of the kids and it is a favourite amongst almost all of them. It is a favourite with me because it is so easy and quick to cook!

Tuna Rice

Ingredients:

  • Approx 2 cups rice
  • 1 red capsicum, finely chopped
  • 4 carrots, grated
  • 6 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 3 x 185 grams Tuna – Tomato and Onion flavour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Instructions:

  1. Cook rice by preferred method.
  2. Heat oil in a large frying pan.
  3. Once at a medium heat, place tuna in pan, stirring constantly 1- 2 minutes. Break up any big chunks, so there will be a consistent flavour.
  4. Add spring onions and cook, stirring constantly for about 1 minute.
  5. Add capsicum and carrot, cooking for another minute or so.
  6. Once rice is cooked, add to the pan and combine thoroughly.
