It's saturday night already here in our country, still haven't done grocery...our fridge is almost empty-inhabited with ice cubes, cold water and some papayas (which I really don't like, but it's good for the skin so I still weeping-ly drink it (I shake them)) and our savior are canned goods. We call foods that are in can here "de lata", it's a staple goods in the pantry that saves a hungry stomach when the fridge is all out. Tuna is the most popular de lata especially when I was still in college. Just open and pour it over a hot rice and I'm good to go but of course eating it almost everyday kinda makes a meal very boring so we (my sister and I) spiced it up and come up with Spicy Tuna in Green Beans.
The ingredients are no brainer:
oil enough to saute garlic
minced garlic (depends how much you like)
thinly sliced green beans or what we call here baguio beans (depends on how much you like)
a can of tuna flakes in spicy oil
salt and pepper to taste
soy sauce, optional
1. Saute garlic.
2. Add string beans, saute until tender (but hopefully still a bit crispy).
3. Add the tuna.
4. Season with salt and pepper.
5. If you are going to eat it with rice, then add some soy sauce for extra saltiness and flavor.
6. Simmer until everything is cooked.
And voila! A not so boring meal!
