Tuna Sweet Potato Bake
Last night I decided to put a Healthy Girl spin on one of my FAV childhood dinner dishes… A Tuna Potato Bake!
The result was DEVINE! Myself and my hubby absolutely loved it. Soooooo! Here is my Healthy Girl Tuna Sweet Potato Bake recipe for you all to try one night when you feel like something different which is totally yummy BUT healthy!
- 2 tins of tuna in salt water (I usually open the can, drain the salt water, re-rinse the tuna in water and then drain again).
- 3/4 of a red or green bell pepper.
- 1/2 a can of sweet corn.
- Chopped red onion (I usually do about 1/2 to 3/4 of one small red onion).
- Chopped fresh coriander.
- A light drizzle of olive oil.
- A sprinkle of Ina Parma’s Chicken Spice (optional).
- 1 packet of Woolworths diced sweet potato (500g).
- Goats feta and parmesan cheese (optional).
- Set aside a medium/large casserole dish.
- Prepare the dish with a non-stick cooking spray.
- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
- Cut 1cm off from the corner of the Woolworths sweet potato packet and cook in the microwave for about 6 minutes (until soft). If you are using normal sweet potato peel the skin off and boil until soft.
- Open and drain the tuna and sweet corn.
- Chop coriander, onion and bell pepper.
- Once the sweet potato is cooked remove from the microwave and allow it to cool. Be careful not to burn yourself when moving the packet. Once cooled place all the sweet potato into a bowl and mash until smooth.
- In a separate mixing bowl add tuna, sweet corn, coriander, onion, peppers, chicken spice (optional) and olive oil. Mix all ingredients together until well combined.
- Place all of the tuna mixtures into the bottom of the casserole dish.
- Put about 3/4 of the sweet potato mash over the tuna layer.
- Crumble some goats feta over the top and a dash of parmesan cheese (optional).
- Place the dish in the oven for about 15 minutes – until the top has browned.
- Allow it to cool.
- Serve up & ENJOY!
