2-N-1: Fish-Veggie Side Dish to Tuna Quesadilla

Happy New Year to one and all! How was your New Year's Eve celebration last night?

Here's a healthy easy-to-prepare dish for a mom with a very hectic schedule this new year 2013. I made this last Sunday when I was so in a hurry to finish my household chores before running to attend the last Sunday Service for 2012 in our church. I just call it Fish-Veggie Mix. It can pass for a short order in a Fast Food Chain.

 Ingredients:

1 tsp butter
1 tsp garlic
1 pc onion sliced
1/2 cup tuna chunks
1 tbsp oyster sauce
pinch of salt and ground pepper
1 medium carrot sliced
1 cup broccoli florets
5 thin slices of zucchini 1/4 cup red and green bell pepper sliced
1 tbsp leeks

Steps: 
  1. In a skillet, saute garlic and onion using butter. 
  2. Add tuna chunks. Season with oyster sauce, salt and pepper. Cover and simmer until tuna chunks are almost cooked. 
  3. Add carrots and broccoli. After one minute, add bell pepper and zucchini. Simmer for another minute. 
  4. Sprinkle leeks on top and serve as toppings to a cup of rice.
 
Canned tuna chunks or flakes may be used but for this recipe, I used fresh tuna. And instead of serving this as toppings to rice, it became a perfect side dish to Ayana Grace's masterpiece, the Tuna Quesadilla.
Place filling on one half of the tortilla before folding over the other half
 
 One piece of tortilla can serve four. 
So the three quesadilla pieces can last the whole day (breakfast, lunch and dinner) for a family of four. Isn't that nice?

Using the Smoked Chicken and Cheese Quesadilla recipe of Divas Can Cook, Ayana used tuna as filling because my husband, who has been on a fish diet since he recovered from a mild stroke, is enjoying his holiday break at home. This dish is fast becoming our family's fave.
See? Just a piece of Tuna Quesadilla with Fish-Veggie as side dish and a cup of soup
made a simple but healthy meal which my husband enjoyed!
More yummy and healthy meals in the coming posts! Sorry, my thoughts run faster than my fingers on my laptop :(

Happy 2013 once again! Ready for tomorrow's first-2013-day-at-work?
