Tuna Chowder

Serves 4
Takes 15 minutes

Healthy and quick to make. What more could you ask for after a hard day at work...perhaps a cold beer to match?

Ingredients
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, peeled & finely diced
  • 2 large celery sticks, trimmed & finely diced
  • 1 tbsp wholemeal flour
  • 500ml skim milk
  • large can of tuna in water
  • 2 cups corn kernels (can used canned or frozen)
  • 1 tbsp freshly chopped thyme (or 2 tsp dried)
  • Salt & freshly cracked pepper
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • 2 tbsp freshly chopped parsley (to serve)
Method
  1. Heat the oil in large saucepan over a medium-low heat & add the onion & celery. Cook until both are soft, about 5-10 minutes.
  2. Stir in the flour & cook for another minute.
  3. Turn temperature down low and slowly add in the milk, mixing it in.
  4. Add the tuna & its liquid, sweetcorn & thyme. Mix then bring to the boil. Cover & simmer for 5 minutes.
  5. Remove pan from heat & season to taste. Sprinkle chowder with a pinch or two of cayenne pepper depending on how hot you like it & chopped parsley.
  6. Serve immediately & enjoy!
