Ginisang Tuna Recipe

It’s back to school season.  If you are a typical Filipino at heart (and stomach), I’m sure breakfast is more than a bagel or a bowl of cereal.  Even my children who are born and raised here in the US, already know that a meal isn’t complete without rice and some protein. Onions and parsley can count as vegetables right?

Anyway, here’s a simple recipe that is perfect for breakfast, lunch or even dinner. It’s very easy to make and the ingredients are often already in your pantry.

A quick tip if you can’t wake up early in the morning. You can prepare this the night before and just heat it up in the microwave.

When I posted the picture at the Nanay’s Choice FB group, some moms even gave some tips for leftovers such as Tuna Spaghetti, topping for salad, palaman (filling) for sandwiches and tuna casserole.

Give this recipe a try and let me know how you liked it. If ever you had leftovers, what did you do to make it “new” again?

Have a great week!
