Solo Rainbow Rice and Tuna Fish RECIPE

Hub-UK first came into existence back in May 2000. Seems a long time ago now!

Back then the internet was a very different place with much more of an amateur feel to it. In a lot of ways it was a pleasanter and more friendly place to hang out. For those of us interested in food and cooking it was a great opportunity to chat and share ideas with people living in other parts of the world.

It was also a time when everyone involved in cooking, whether they were just a keen amateur, a busy mum, a grandmother with a lifetime of kitchen experience or a professional chef just starting a career in the kitchen or one who was an old hand working at the stove, was happy to share recipes so others could enjoy them.

A lot of the details of who contributed what have either become blurred or disappeared over the years but the recipes are still worthwhile either in their own right or for the inspiration they might give.

This is one of the 'Solo' series recipes provided by Bill Hilbrich from Saint Cloud, Minnesota.


1/3 cup raw un cooked (NOT instant) rice
2/3 cup chicken broth (canned is fine)
2 Tablespoons (divided) Butter
1 small (6oz or 170g) chunk Tuna (drained)
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1/3 cup diced onions
1/3 cup red Bell Peppers
1/3 cup green Bell Peppers
salt and pepper to taste


  • Melt one tablespoon of butter in a 1 quart saucepan, add rice and stir until all the grains are coated.
  • Add the chicken broth to the rice, cover and place pan over a stove burner with a very low flame. (Total heating time will be 15 minutes, followed by at least 5 minutes standing time).
  • After the rice has cooked for 15 minutes, turn off the flame under the rice, but do NOT remove the cover.
  • Melt one tablespoon of butter in a frying pan; heat the onion and bell peppers until soft.
  • Add the lemon juice and the drained can of tuna.
  • Heat mixture for an additional 3 to 5 minutes or until the tuna is warmed.
  • Remove the cover on the rice and stir in the heated onion, bell pepper and tuna mixture and serve.
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
