Tuna vegetable casserole
« on: May 28, 2020, 10:59:26 am »
TUNA & VEGGIE CASSEROLE  Serves 3 - 4

This recipe came about because of having bits and pieces in the veggie crisper to use up.

2 tsp olive oil
80g onion, quartered
60g red capsicum, cut into chunks
100g sliced mushrooms
1 bunch broccolini, ends trimmed.
1 large tin tuna

Cheese sauce - 2 tsp Flora light margarine (or butter if it suits your diet), 2 T plain flour, 300ml low fat milk, 60g low fat cheese and 20g Parmesan (will be divided later), S & P

Topping - crispbread (crushed) or breadcrumbs mixed with 35g of the cheese.

Heat the olive oil in the TM bowl on Varoma temperature for 2 minutes.
Add the quartered onion and the red capsicum, chop 6 sec/speed 7 then add the sliced mushrooms and cook 5 minutes/varoma temp/speed 2/reverse/MC off.  Place the mixture into the bottom of a casserole dish.

Meanwhile steam the covered broccolini in the microwave with a small quantity of water for 3 minutes on high. Place on a chopping board and cut into 4 cm pieces then mix it with the other veggies in the casserole dish.

Rinse and dry the TM bowl then chop the cheeses 8 sec/speed 6.  Reserve 45 g cheese for the sauce and the rest (35g) for the topping.

Rinse and dry the bowl again. Place 2 tsp Flora light margarine or butter into the TM bowl, melt 1 minute/speed 1.
Add the flour and cook 2 mins/90 degrees/speed 1, stopping the machine and helping to incorporate the flour with a spatula twice during the cooking time.
Add the milk, mix on speed 5 to incorporate the flour mixture for a few seconds then cook for 6 mins/90 degrees/speed 3.
Add the larger quantity of grated cheese and S & P to taste then cook 2 mins/90 degrees/speed 3.
Pour the sauce over the tuna, sprinkle with the combined topping ingredients and bake 180 degrees Celsius for 20-25 minutes or until heated through and topping is brown.

This certainly sounds tasty Judy. You have invented a yummy recipe.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Thank you Julie.  I accidentally found the miso paste in Drakes yesterday so now I have to find the recipe to use it.  Ah yes MichelleĎs Miso salmon recipe print out, I found it.  I sent Katie home with some little tubs of it today as thereís quite a lot in the container, I will definitely freeze the rest of it.  Iíd checked there before and they never had it, today I wasnít looking for it and there it was.

That's usually the case isn't it Judy.  Glad you were able to get some easily.  :)
