This recipe is dear to my heart because not only is it the first dish I learned to make with my mom, it's a traditional recipe for my culture. I remember my grandmother making this for all of us kids when we were little.
Tuna Rice
INGREDIENTS
3 Cups Uncooked Rice
5 Cups Water or Broth
2 Cans Albacore Tuna, drained (we can our own in Olive Oil, Salt and a mild chili)
1 Large Onion, chopped
3 Cloves Garlic, minced
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper
Instructions
Over medium high heat saute the onions in the olive oil until translucent, add garlic and cook for an additional minute. Add the tuna and saute until heated through. Add water, salt, and pepper.

Bring to a boil, add rice and stir. Bring back to a boil for 1 minute, stir again.

Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes covered. Resist the urge to peek, it will cook if you leave it alone. :)

Fluff with fork and serve with any side veggies you'd like.

If there are any leftovers the next day, simply saute some more onions in olive oil, add the rice and lightly toast in the pan, best part! Enjoy!
