Growing up we ate tuna over rice quite a bit. It was easy and a cheap meal to feed 9 people. There are a few meals that we ate a lot, (this being one of them) that I came to dislike it very much. Canned cream soup is REALLY not very good for you, and needless to say I never made tuna over rice as an adult. A few years ago we were visiting my sister-in-law (my husband only has one sibling) and her family, and while we were there my sister in law made us tuna over rice. I honestly was a bit worried because of my previous relationship with tuna over rice, but after the first bite I was hooked! This is such a yummy and lite meal, especially with it being so hot lately, it is one that I love to make AND eat 🙂
It is really quite simple and you can add any vegetables that suit your fancy. I make my Cilantro Rice, mix the tuna with a bit of mayo, top the rice with the tuna and veggies and there you have it! A super easy and healthier version of tuna over rice!
