The perfect summer lunch that takes no time to make. I usually cheat & use a packet rice because I’m not usually organised enough to cook rice first.. If you are then do that!
You could make this to take to a bbq or meal prep for 2-3 days lunches. I make this for my girls’ school lunches too & they love it!
There’s the perfect mix of protein, healthy fats, carbs, fibre & loads of nutrition. Plus...it's delicious!
- 250g packet of precooked brown rice (or cook 1/2 cup brown basmati rice in 1 cup water on very low until cooked)
- 185g tinned tuna
- 1 tin beans of choice (I usually use butter beans)
- 1 Lebanese cucumber
- 1/2 red capsicum
- a good handful of fresh herbs such as parsley or basil
- Extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 lemon
- Salt & pepper
- Although the rice in the packets is precooked, I still like to heat it a little to soften the grains but I also don't like to cook the rice in the
