Lenten Creamed Tuna Over Toast

(Apologies for the silence over the last week. Half term with limited childcare, a husband out of town, and house guests didn’t leave me much time to blog! So don’t mind me as I try to catch up a bit this weekend!)

Creamed tuna over toast is a meal that my mom would often make on Fridays during lent. It is meant to be a very simple, meat-free meal, but it is actually surprisingly tasty! Not tasty like a lasagne, but certainly tastier than it looks! It also takes all of ten minutes to make with items from your pantry, which is nice.

If you wanted to dress this up a bit, you could add some cheese to the top and broil it in the oven. It detracts a bit from the intentional simplicity of the meal, but would sure taste yummy!

    I’ve just come across your website as I love finding new recipes. But I wanted to say that fish isn’t vegetarian! Vegetarianism involves no meat or fish. Veganism cuts out dairy, eggs and another animal products too. If you eat fish, you are NOT a vegetarian. Check the vegatarian society definitions.

      Hi Caroline! Yes. Sorry. I’m was being lazy about vegetarianism vs pescatarianism. I’ve changed the text above from “vegetarian” to read “meat-free” instead. Thanks for pointing it out! x
