Tuna with Lemon Rice

This is a fast, tasty, and low spoon dish that’s both affordable and healthy. It’s a single person dish as written, but you could easily multiply it.

  • Tuna (I used one small pouch)
  • Leftover Rice (I use white, freshly made is also good)
  • Bottled Lemon Juice 
  • Salt

Get a plate or bowl. Place some rice on it, and mix in a little water. Heat in the microwave until done. (Mine takes 1:30-2:00 minutes depending on the portion size.) When the rice is ready, sprinkle over some salt and lemon juice and stir to combine. Open the pouch of tuna, and place your desired amount on top. (I usually used ½ a pouch of tuna, so I would get two servings out of it.) The cool tuna and hot, lemony rice are the perfect combo.


Sometimes I would add a pat of butter or a little chicken broth to the rice before heating. A little celery salt or garlic powder sprinkled over the tuna is also good. And if you’re feeling fancy, you could add some chopped onion or celery with the tuna.
