Tuna with Tomatoes, Onions and Capers
The food we throw together when we do not have to cook for someone else is often something that others might think would be disgusting. That might have been my experience if I had served the concoction it takes me less than five minutes to throw together for a dinner meal sometimes.
Sometimes, I realize that I have not eaten throughout the day, short of a few pretzels or a frozen lime pop. I know that I need to put something into my gut and know that protein is important for me.
I will rummage through my pantry and my refrigerator and can usually find these ingredients:
-1 can of imported Italian tuna in pure olive oil
-Piece of yellow onion, chopped
-Roma tomato, sliced thinly
-1 Tbsp. of imported capers in brine, drained
-1 Garlic clove, minced
-Crushed, dried red pepper flakes
Then to cook:
-Drain the olive oil from the tuna into a small skillet; add the onion, tomato, garlic, capers and pepper flakes and saute over medium heat until onion is cooked.
-Add the tuna and heat through.
-Serve over rice or toss with pasta. (I usually keep either cooked and in the refrigerator or freezer for these quick meals.)
I love this, and I am glad that I do not have to worry about whether or not someone else would like it or not. There are many moments that living alone really does have its benefit.
