(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.
Lenten Creamed Tuna Over ToastPrint Recipe
- 1 can of tuna
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 240ml (1 cup) milk
- 75 grams (1/2 cup) frozen peas
- optional: hard boiled eggs
melt the butter in a pot
slowly add in the flour, mixing it well with the butter with a fork or whisk until it looks similar to the picture below
slowly whisk in the milk
stir in the tuna
mix in frozen peas
salt and pepper to taste
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!
