How did this combination fall into the same pan? Well, by chance, mostly. After an exhausting day, having not spent one minute considering dinner, I found myself in a rush to get a meal on the table. Spying a few cans of tuna on the same pantry shelf as a jar of peanut butter, an idea quickly sparked.
What you'll need:
3 cans tuna in olive oil
1/4 c peanut butter
1/2 c sesame seeds
1/2 large onion
1 bunch celery
8-10 baby portabella mushrooms
2-3 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp black pepper
sea salt to taste
1 1/2 c peas
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- While olive oil heats in pan/skillet, dice mushrooms, onion & garlic. Saute until golden brown.
- Add tuna, sliced celery, peas & seasonings to pan.
- Add peanut butter & allow it to melt.
- Cover & cook, stirring occasionally. It's ready whenever the veggies are at your preferred consistency.
Do you heat your home with a woodburner like I do? Try cooking this meal on it! With all the energy and effort it takes to cut, split and stack firewood, I like to find as many ways to utlize that energy as possible.
