Tuna Chow Mein


I got this recipe at a fundraising event many years ago. It’s a great recipe to use when you want a lighter, non-meat version of the classic Chinese dish. Your family might not even notice the difference.


1. In a medium-sized pot, heat oil.
2. Add onions and fry until soft and translucent.
3. Add celery and mushrooms and stir.
4. Add salt and half a cup water, cover, and bring mixture to a boil.
5. Add tuna and soy sauce.
6. Mix well and cook on low heat for 30 minutes.
7. In a small cup, combine cornstarch and two tablespoons water until smooth. Slowly pour into tuna mixture, stirring constantly until the mixture thickens.
8. Serve hot on a bed of rice.

Tips: This recipe doubles and triples beautifully. Simply whip up a large batch and freeze the leftovers!
