Tip:you can use any vegetables you have in the fridge. Blended cauliflower/broccoli or carrot also goes really well in this mixture. If you increase the vegetables you can add another can of creamed corn to ensure the mixture is bound.

  2. In a pan heat the olive oil, add the onions and brown
  3. Next add the tuna (ensure can is drained) and gently fry off for 5 minutes
  4. Add the can of creamed corn, followed by all your vegetables. Also add your chosen grain (such as cooked quinoa) at this point. (Note: if you increased the vegetable quantity, add another can of creamed corn at this point).
  5. Add pepper to taste. You do not need to add salt to this dish however, you can add a dash at this point if you choose.

  7. Once the vegetables are combined and softer, transfer the mixture into a baking tray (large enough to fit the cooked vegetables).
