Last night was The Cat Stevens Concert at The Vector. My beloved generously gave up his ticket to our friend Lana. About 5pm I thought I have better make him a tasty dinner.
Using pantry and fridge items I knocked up this very tasty Tuna and Rice dish all in just over 30 minutes.
Tuna, Mushrooms in a creamy sauce mixed with rice and covered with a cheesy crunchy topping.
Rachel does it in under 30 minutes but my dish needed at least 25 minutes in the oven, but the prep was only about 12 minutes.
Heat the oven to 180C

2 tbs unsalted butter
1 onion finely chopped
5 mushrooms sliced
1 tbs flour
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
Pinch chili flakes
Chicken stock about 1 cup
50 mls cream
1 can tuna ( (i always use Tuna in Olive oil
Put the rice into a pot of boiling salted water
Cook for about 8 minutes
Drain and leave till needed
Meanwhile, while the rice is cooking
