Stir-fried Rice with Bacon & Tuna

I originally wrote about this recipe several months ago but annoyingly it somehow got deleted, along with the posts of many other bloggers. So if you think you've seen this before, you probably have!

Here it is again then, a recipe I came across in delicious magazine many years ago and have made many times since. There's nothing intricate or fancy about it, just a great dish for a weeknight dinner that's easy to throw together and tastes great.

Stir-fried Rice with Bacon & Tuna
(adapted from delicious magazine)

175g long grain rice
1 tbsp olive oil
2 rashers unsmoked back bacon, diced
1 garlic clove, crushed
80g frozen peas
198g can tuna steak in oil, drained
1/2 bunch spring onions, finely sliced
2 tbsp reduced salt soy sauce, plus extra to serve

1) Put the rice into a saucepan, cover with 450ml cold water and add a good pinch of salt. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes, until just cooked. Drain.

2) Halfway through cooking the rice, heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan over a high heat. Add the bacon and fry for 4-5 minutes, until crisp. Remove and drain on kitchen paper.

3) Add the cooked rice and garlic to the wok and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add the peas, tuna, most of the spring onions, cooked bacon and soy sauce. Stir-fry until the rice is piping hot.

4) Serve sprinkled with the remaining spring onion slices and extra soy sauce.

Serves 2
