Tuna with Rice for One

We do a lot of family sized recipes around here…this one is a nice tuna  just for one. Use cheddar or swiss instead of American. Yes, the cucumber gets cooked.

1 small cucumber, seeded and chopped
1 3 1/4 oz can tuna, drained and flaked
1/4 cup quick cooking rice
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Dash garlic salt
1/4 cup shredded American cheese

In a 12-ounce casserole, combine cucumber, tuna, rice, water, lemon juice and garlic salt. Bake, covered at 350 till rice is cooked-about 25 minutes. Top with cheese. Bake uncovered until cheese melts, 5 or so minutes. Makes 1 serving.


  1. Oh, memories! My DH and i used to eat this in our early days….but now my tuna allergy has kicked in, so no more for me! But it is really good, and the cheese is good with it.

  2. This looks really yummy and easy. It’s so nice to see a recipe for one! Most recipes assume that you are always cooking for a family of four, which leaves me with a lot of left overs. I may just make this for lunch tomorrow 🙂
