Tuna Pie with a Brown Rice Base


  • 1½ Cups of Brown Rice
  • 2 onions
  • Coconut oil (You can use Ghee, butter or any other oil you prefer)
  • 5 Eggs
  • 1 Cup of Almond Milk
  • 2 Tbs Nutritional Yeast
  • 1 Tsp of Mustard powder

  • Tin of Tuna in oil approx 420 grams. We use the brand Fish 4 Ever – They use sustainable fishing practices and they also use certified organic olive oil. You can find them in Wray Organics and some health food shops. The canned tuna industry have been engrossed by destructive fishing practices, illegal fishing, human rights abuse and wasteful “bycatch” from the use of FADs (Fish Aggregating Devices) that kill sharks, turtles and other marine life unnecessarily.
