Tuna and Rice

Submitted by: CARPENSM

Introduction

This sounds strange but is fabulous! A roomate of mine made it and I adopted the recipe. It is healthier to use tuna in water but the oil really adds to the recipe and the texture of the dish.

Ingredients

    2 cups basmati rice
    1 can tuna in oil (whole tuna is best)
    Juice from 1 lemon
    1/2 tsp ground pepper
    1/3 tsp salt
    2 tsp margarine

Directions

Instead of cooking rice according to the directions boil rice in a lot of water without a lid until the rice is almost done (but not quite).

Drain water from the rice.

Melt margarine in the bottom of the pan and add the mostly cooked rice in a pile on top. Make a couple holes to the bottom with a spoon.

Place the lid on the rice but wrap a tea towel around it first to absorb moisture. This makes the rice fluffy and it won't stick together. Cook on med-low.

After about 5-7 minutes remove from heat.

Pour tuna and oil over the mixture (break up whole tuna with a fork into flakes) add salt, pepper and lemon juice and stir.

This is really good just as it is but tastes even better re heated the next day!
