Recipe: tomato tuna thing

This would be the kind of thing you put on pasta, but I just eat it by itself or mop with a mini-pitta bread. Super simple, super tasty!

  • Can tuna in oil
  • Sieved tomatoes
  • 2 Large garlic cloves
  • Cup of sweetcorn
  • Salt, Oregano

To be very quick, pop the kettle on, fill a cup with your frozen sweetcorn and pore on the water to start it off (could also start your pasta at this point if so inclined). Pan on low heat, empty the tuna and its oil in. Chop the garlic and throw it in a minute. Tomatoes, TV chef sprinkle of sea salt, generous amount of oregano. Drain the corn and add it. Simmer for 10 mins.

Don’t burn your tongue (and save half for tomorrow if not sharing with a significant other).

Points of note – no onions; they sap the flavour in this mix. Oregano works better than other/mixed herbs. Any other kind of canned tuna is just less efficient.

  1. I’ve been told a couple of dashes of Worcestershire Sauce works wonders in a tomato based sauce! Might be worth a try for a little added twist. I’m quite keen to try out food dehydrating in the not too distant future so might file this recipe away for future use, thanks!

  2. Oh, I do add a dash of Worcestershire in chilli sometimes or on an omelette if I’m lacking other ingredients, but haven’t thought of it for this. Not sure it needs anything as the flavours are quite robust as it is… probably will work very well as a dehydrated meal!
