Tuna Rechauffe

This is essentially a fried rice dish, except that it is not fried but simply reheated [hence the name] pre-cooked rice and frozen mixed diced vegetables in a sauce mix. It is not very clever, but it is quick and easy. I like quick and easy. The sauce mix is a matter of on-going experimentation. The correct name, by the way, is ‘Tuna Réchauffé’ – note the use of accents – but for some reason WordPress can’t seem to allow the use of such things in the page title..



1 tblsp Thai sweet chilli sauce.

1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce.

2 tblsp tomato paste.

½ cup cooking oil.

2 cup cooked basmati rice.

1 spring onion, finely chopped.

1 tsp capers, chopped.

1 185g can tuna chunks, drained.

1 ½ cups mixed frozen vegetables.



In a small bowl, beat together the chilli, Worcestershire, tomato paste and oil and set aside. In a second bowl, mix together the rice, spring onion and capers. Set aside.



Place a sauté pan or wok over a medium flame and gently heat the chilli mixture. Add the tuna and the mixed vegetables and heat through. Add the rice mixture and stir through. Add salt to taste, cover and cook gently for 6-8 minutes stirring a couple of times, until hot right through. Serve immediately.


Serves: 2.
