IntroductionA very filling salad, rich in protein and vitamins. A very filling salad, rich in protein and vitamins.
100g (3.5oz) green leaf lettuce
1 can (112g/4oz) tuna, canned in water
150g (5.2oz) brown rice, medium-grain
100g (3.5oz) cucumber, sliced
40g radishes, sliced
1tsp olive oil
1tbsp cider vinegar
Cook some brown rice (make sure you prepare it well ahead of time: brown rice takes a considerably longer amount of time to cook). For 150g of boiled (and strained) rice, use some 47g (or 1.65oz) of raw rice.
Choose some fresh lettuce leaves and wash very thoroughly under running water.
Do not cut in very small threads; it loses its vitamins much faster this way.
Slice half a medium cucumber and the radishes. Add some chunks of avocado.
Strain and add tuna.
Add 1tsp olive oil and 1tbsp cider vinegar (you can replace this with white vinegar).
Mix well, and enjoy!
Note: the vegetable amount may vary. You can add more tuna for extra protein, or some more rice to make it more filling. If you are concerned with fats, watch the olive oil and avocado you put in.
Number of Servings: 1
