How to Make Oriental Tuna and Rice with Vegetables and Mushroom Soup

Oriental Tuna and Rice

A different way to get your family to eat more vegetables without complaining is to incorporate them into a recipe. This is what I did when I made this oriental tuna and rice dish. My recipe is easy and delicious with lots of onion, celery and cauliflower in a creamy mushroom soup base accented with a bit of molasses, ginger and soy sauce before served over a bed of cooked white rice.

A benefit of making this tuna dish is it is not overly complicated to prepare. The hardest part will be chopping the onion and celery, cooking the rice and then whipping together this simple sauce.

Another reason to love my oriental tuna and rice is because it also is quite economical if you’re trying to watch your food budget. With the high costs of everything, including food right now, you will be surprised at helpful and satisfying this recipe is.

You’re probably wondering why I use two cups of uncooked rice since you may have some leftover. The reason that I use that amount is because with what is left can be used to make my apples and rice pudding recipe. I usually have about a cup of cooked rice leftover so just divide the ingredients and make a forth of that apples and rice recipe.

I hope that you’ll want to try my oriental tuna and rice because it is a tasty alternative to change up your menu with all the awesome flavor it has.
