Prep: 5 min
Cook: 50 min
Servings: 4
Simple to cook, this tasty tomato and tuna dish is a winner!


  • 2 reduced-salt stock cubes
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 400 g can no-added-salt diced tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 cups brown rice (uncooked)
  • 440 g can reduced-salt corn kernels, drained
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 185 g can tuna in spring water, drained
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin or curry powder


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C fan forced).
  2. Dissolve the stock cube in the water.
  3. Mix all ingredients in a small baking dish.
  4. Cover and bake for 50 minutes or until rice is tender and liquid has been absorbed.
  5. Serve warm.


If using white rice, reduce water to 2 cups and bake for 35 minutes or until rice is tender and liquid has been absorbed.

Healthy tip!

Chilli, lemon and herbs add flavour - great alternatives to butter and salt!

    @KylieGuy You could try green beans or finely diced carrot?

    One of my favourites. I also add beans and mushrooms. I grate some low fat cheese on top. Also found the cooking time was longer but interestingly, after I left it on bench after cooking for about 10 minutes it wasn't watery and ready to eat.
