Why I Love This Recipe

So this one time I was hungry. Like, I mean HUNGRY. But money was a thing that happened to other people. Not unlike Old Mother Hubbard of legend and myth, I went to the cupboard to see what I bought ages ago which was contained in tins and could be easily fashioned into something edible.

The rest, as they say, is misery.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 tin of baked beans (if an individual tin costs more than 10p, you're doing it wrong).
2 tins of tuna (dolphin is also acceptable but somewhat frowned upon by hipsters).
1 tin of chopped tomatoes (mine was severely out of date, if yours isn't then don't worry. It'll do).

1tbsp ground coriander
1tbsp ground cumin (no giggling at the back!)
1tbsp ground garlic
1tbsp turmeric
1tbsp ground ginger
1tbsp mixed hot spices

...And whatever other spices you have in the cupboard which sound interesting and spicy.


Throw the tuna, beans and tomatoes into a pan.

Throw the spices into the pan.

Heat the whole thing up, stirring it all the while. If it's bubbling then turn the heat down or something. I dunno, just make sure it's hot because a cold dinner is a bit pants.

Serve with rice, pasta or bread if you're all swanky and can afford bread.
