RECIPE: Tuna and Rice

Tuesday, September 17, 2013

Here is my variation of an old favorite - a tuna rice casserole that is just as good warm as it is leftover and served cold as a salad. And especially fun - if you choose to add some whimsy as in the picture above.

2 cans tuna, solid white, no salt added
fresh lemon juice to taste
4 servings cooked brown jasmine rice
1 cup Mexican Blend shredded cheese (Trader Joe's)
1/3 cup light sour cream (Trader Joe's)
1 cup frozen petite peas (thawed) (optional)
Nature's Seasons Blend – to taste
4 servings

Mix all ingredients. I make it when the rice is new cooked and warm. It melts the cheese and helps the flavors blend. Then I pack the leftovers in single serve containers and refrigerate. I like it cold, but it can be re-heated. (Peas are optional. I like using them because then I have all the major food groups in one dish)

Great blog. I love fall and like you whenever fall comes around I always feel the need to change around things or add something new to an old routine.

    Hi CJ, I love trying out new Healthy Recipes especially those that don't take 50 ingredients emoticon This sounds so tasty and easy to make. Do you have any idea how many calories per serving? I can figure that out myself, actually. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I only wish I would have read this before I went to the market today as I would need a few things to make this dish. Please share any other good recipes you enjoy eating and that are healthy. Take good care.
