Tuna Fried Rice


1/2 cup dry rice
1/2 large sweet onion
2 cloves garlic
1 5oz. can tuna
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp lemon juice
1-2 tsp dry sherry
2-3 tbsp soy sauce
salt, pepper, Cayenne to taste

Cook rice according to directions*. While the rice is doing its thing, mince the onion and garlic, and drain the tuna. Heat a wok or a large skillet with a little oil and cook the onion and garlic first, until the onion is soft. Then add the tuna to warm it through, then add the rice, then the egg and the liquids. Stir fry until the egg’s cooked. Season to taste.

Sometimes, you are a broke grad student who doesn’t feel like going to the grocery store, so you use up what you’ve got. I might add some scallions or bell pepper next time Also, if you have cats, they will go INSANE while you’re cooking this.

*This guy has an excellent method for making awesome rice that doesn’t stick: add however much rice you’re cooking to a pot, then add enough water so that when you touch the top of the rice with your index finger, the water comes up to the first knuckle. Seriously, regular rice never sticks or burns this way!
