Ingredients

2 cups (500 mL)
frozen mixed vegetables
1 cup (250 mL)
frozen shelled edamame or peas
2
cloves garlic, minced
1
small onion, grated
1 can (284 mL)
Condensed Tomato Soup (25 % Less Salt)
2 cans (170 g each)
Clover Leaf Flaked Light Tuna in Water, drained
2 cups (500 mL)
prepared mashed potatoes
1 tbsp (15 mL)
non-hydrogenated margarine melted

Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C) . Place vegetable blend, edamame, garlic, onion and 1/4 cup (50 mL) water in a medium saucepan set over medium heat. Cover and cook for 10 minutes or until vegetables are softened. Add condensed soup and tuna; bring to a boil.
  2. Transfer tuna mixture to an 8-inch (2 L) square baking dish. Dollop mashed potatoes over the tuna and spread evenly; brush with margarine. Bake for 20 minutes or until bubbly and heated through. Makes 4 servings.
  3. Tips:
    1. For a nicely browned top, broil the casserole for about 5 minutes before removing from the oven.
    2. Pre-warming the potatoes (if cold) in the microwave while the vegetables are steaming so that they are easier to spread.
    3. Add hot sauce or a splash of red wine to the tuna mixture to taste for a more adult flavour profile.
