Cooking with my Air Fryer | Creamy Tuna Rice Casserole Recipe.

And just like that - it's November. This year will soon be over, and well, it's not as fruitful or as eventful as I had hoped it to be. I guess most of you feel the same way because of the situation we're all in (damn you, coronavirus!). On the bright side, the community quarantine made me rekindle my love for plants and gardening, gave me a chance to binge-watch all sorts of series on Netflix, allowed me to indulge in aromatherapy and essential oils, and made me very productive in terms of housework (kitchen work, to be exact). 

Speaking of kitchen work, I'm back with a new recipe. Yay! I just realized that I have been out of circulation for almost two weeks. Sorry for the lack of updates, but we've been busy with school stuff - projects, unit tests, you know the drill. Thankfully, Yue won't be having classes this week (both synchronous and asynchronous) because the school will be giving the kids some sort of 'health and wellness break'. That means plenty of time for me to bake and try out new recipes, and finish the first season of Black Clover on Netflix.

Today's recipe is Creamy Tuna Casserole, which I discovered in Nestle Cream Philippines' Create with Cream website. I tweaked it just a bit to my liking. Here goes:

Creamy Tuna Casserole

2 Tbsp butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 small onion, chopped
1 medium tomato, chopped
1 can shredded tuna, drained
1 cup mixed vegetables (carrots, corn, green peas)
1/2 cup water
1 pack 125 mL Nestle All-Purpose Cream
2 cups cooked rice (Japanese rice or Dinorado)
1/2 bar quick melt cheese
salt and pepper to taste

Ingredients for the Creamy Tuna Rice Casserole.

1. Saute garlic, onion, and tomato in butter.
2. Once the onion has slightly caramelized and the tomato has softened, add the mixed vegetables to the pan. Saute for a minute, then add the shredded tuna. 
3. Add the water and Nestle All-Purpose Cream. Gently simmer and season with salt and pepper. Remove from fire once the mixture thickens.
4. Spread the rice in an oven-safe pan. Pour the cream mixture and grate cheese on top. 
5. Set your air fryer to Bake mode and bake at 170°C for 15 minutes or until the cheese turns light golden brown. Serve warm.
6. Optional: Scoop them on seasoned nori sheets, Sushi Bake style.

Enjoy! :)
