Tuna Bake

Serves 2 – 4


  • 2 tins tuna in brine, drained and lightly drizzled with olive oil
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Tbs. fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 2 spring onions, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • Handful of fresh basil
  • ½ cup full-cream Greek or plain yoghurt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbs. butter
  • 1 handful of grated cheddar cheese
  • Paprika (I like smoked paprika)
  • Freshly ground Black peppercorns


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  • Steam the head of cauliflower until soft when inserted with a knife.
  • In a casserole dish, combine the drained tuna, tomatoes, garlic, spring onions, fresh herbs, onion and a good grind of black pepper.
  • In a blender, blitz the cooked cauliflower, yoghurt, butter, egg, salt and pepper until it becomes sloppy but smooth.
  • Mix the tuna basil mix so it’s well combined and flattened.
  • Next, pour the cauliflower topping over the basil tuna and spread over evenly with the back of a spoon.
  • Sprinkle over the grated cheese and a dash of paprika and bake in a preheated oven for 30 – 40 minutes, or until the topping is cooked through and the cheese is melted and crispy.
  • Serve with a simple green salad and a splash of your favourite vinaigrette.
