Tuna Fried Rice

The kids had some friends over for dinner, so I wanted something easy, cheap and tasty to feed them all. The good thing about this recipe is that it is made from storecupboard & freezer items. Its a great stand-by meal for children. Make sure to completely cool the rice before frying it, otherwise it will clump and go gooey! If I have just cooked the rice, I rinse it in a sieve under cold water then let it dry. Serves 4.

250g  rice
1 tbsp vegetable oil
Large handful frozen peas, thawed
Large handful sweetcorn
200g tin tuna in brine drained
2 ripe tomato, deseeded and cut into thin wedges
2 tbsp soy sauce
A small handful roughly chopped parsley

Cook the rice according to packet instructions, cool completely and then set aside.Heat the oil in a large frying pan or wok and stir-fry the rice on a high heat for 1-2 mins. Add the peas, sweetcorn, tuna and tomato and stir-fry for a further 2 mins. Stir in the soy sauce and parsley and heat through. Serve in bowls.
