Tomato and tuna risotto

This recipe is adapted from our 4 ingredients cookbook.  It obviously has way more than four ingredients now, but I don’t like bland food so I added a bunch of flavours but tried to maintain the simplicity.
I used fresh tuna, but the original recipe used canned tuna so whichever one you’ve got will be fine. Put the tuna, tomatoes, and spices into a large pot. If you’re using fresh tuna stir the mixture until the tuna is cooked and starting to flake apart. IMGP1574.jpg

Add the rice, spring onions, and stock and stir to mix through the tuna and tomato mixture. Simmer for about twenty minutes stirring occasionally to make sure the rice isn’t sticking. Once all the liquid is all absorbed the rice should be cooked and the risotto should look kind of like porridge.IMGP1583.jpg

If the rice isn’t quite cooked stir in some more liquid until it’s absorbed and the rice is soft. This risotto is also delicious when made into arancini the next day.

Ingredients (serve 6-7)

  • 400g of tuna, fresh or canned
  • 1 400g tin of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tsp of thyme
  • 1 tsp of rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp of sage
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups of rice (preferably arborio)
  • 1/3 cup of chopped spring onions
  • 1 cup of white wine
  • 4 cups of chicken or vegetable stock

Method

  1. Put the tuna, tomatoes, and spices into a large pot. If you’re using fresh tuna stir the mixture until the tuna is cooked and staying to flake apart.
  2.  Add the rice, spring onions, and stock and stir to mix through the tuna and tomato mixture.
  3. Simmer for about twenty minutes stirring occasionally to make sure the rice isn’t sticking.
