Easy Comfort Meal

I know for a fact that I am not a great cook. (Although I did have illusions about becoming one when I first got my own place. My very own kitchen you know!)

Thankfully, in our household, we do have some comfort meals that are a cinch to make. And when I say a dish is easy to make, I really mean EASY with all the caps it deserves.

We always have cans of sardines (in tomato sauce) and diced tomatoes in our kitchen.

Heat up a pan
Drop in a dot of oil
Empty 1 can each of tomatoes and sardines
Break up each fish into 4 pieces (if you wish to)
Toss in a cut red chilli (I use chilli padi)

The end.

Eat with warm rice and enjoy the tantalising mix of sweet, salty, sour and spicy flavours. Mmm mmm.

Hey, I do the same too! :) We stock up on loads of Hunt's but we use the whole plum tomatoes. And its chilli tuna for us, with more chilli padi, and toss with pasta! :) Thanks for sharing, might try sardines the next round!

I love Hunt's! Thanks for sharing your version of this too. When I'm too tired though, rice is always easier than pasta. I just let the rice cooker do its thing :) I sometimes also do cold pasta with tuna (in oil), chopped tomatoes and mayo.

Hope you got a food fix! I always get hungry too if I am up beyond midnight.

the easier one (for me) is to spread the tuna (from canned tuna) on bread with cheese & tomatoes, don't even need to heat up, it tastes good too :-)

Haha, good for you! That's my downfall. I am totally not a bread/pastry person. My sister could live on sandwiches but not me. I was so annoying to even want hot meals when we were travelling in Sweden/Denmark together!

Baked beans! I haven't had those in ages. I like mine with sausages or bacon. Breakfast-ish :)
