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.
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
- In a skillet, saute garlic and onion using butter.
- Add tuna chunks. Season with oyster sauce, salt and pepper. Cover and simmer until tuna chunks are almost cooked.
- Add carrots and broccoli. After one minute, add bell pepper and zucchini. Simmer for another minute.
- 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!
Happy 2013 once again! Ready for tomorrow's first-2013-day-at-work?
