Yummy Tuna and Coriander Chilli
I just came up with this tonight, all by myself on my own...
And it's really really GOOOD!!! Give it a try and let me know how it goes :o)
2 cloves garlic
1 can chopped tomatoes
100g tomato puree
Vegetable stock powder
2 cans tuna
1 can red kidney beans
a good handful or 2 chopped fresh coriander
Using a thick bottomed casserole pan, gently brown 2-3 onions and a couple cloves garlic in some olive oil.
Add a tin of chopped tomatoes, and half a tube of tomato puree (=roughly 100g), together with a generous sprinkle of paprika, ginger, cumin, ground coriander and as much of chilli powder as you deem necessary to make it spicy but not overwhelmingly so (I put in about 1/4 tsp).
Season with 1 Tbsp black treacle and 1 tsp vegetable stock powder, as well as some salt and pepper and simmer this concoction for a good 30 mins on a v low heat.
Once this has reduced by about half, add 2 cans of tuna steak, one can of red kidney beans, some pre-cooked spinach or spring greens and a couple handfuls of chopped fresh coriander.
This can then be taken off the heat until needed. It might be necessary to lubricate with a little tomato puree diluted in water (half tomato/ half water) and a lug of olive oil when reheating.
This was delicious served with a baked potato (you can do this in the microwave: prick it all over and cook on full power for about 7 mins, then stand for 1 min) filled with cream cheese (eg Philadelphia) or soured cream.
Yum. Yum. YUMMMM...
