Spicy tuna rice bowl
A full meal ready in less than 5 minutes, what's not to like ? A spicy tuna rice bowl with cucumber, radishes and a lot of sesame seeds. Perfect when you're in need of a filling meal but don't have much time to cook.
I use my rice cooker to cook my rice, it gets so fluffy and delicious. If you don't own one, put one volume of rice for 2 volumes of water and cover it. Let it cook on low heat and take the lid off when it starts boiling. Let the water evaporates completely : it's ready.
For the veggies, use whatever you have on hands or whatever is in season. I like to add a few crunchy veggies for texture : radish, carrot, cucumber... You can also add some avocado for creaminess.
This dish can be enjoyed over warm rice or as a salad on cold rice.
