Break out a family favorite: tuna casserole. The traditional comfort food is great for serving large groups. In our tuna casserole recipe, we cut the sauce with chicken broth, but there's enough milk to make this casserole feel indulgent.
With a few cans of tuna in the pantry, a satisfying meal is always at your fingertips. "White" tuna is albacore, while tuna labeled "light" may be yellowfin, skipjack, bigeye, or tongol. (To make the most environmentally friendly choices, check labels for tuna that has been troll- or pole-caught.) Browse our collection of 23 canned tuna recipes to find lunch and dinner ideas for the whole family, including salads, pasta dishes, sandwiches, casseroles, and more.
Tuna and beans count selenium as antioxidant sources (choose a colorful bean to add anthocyanins). While the tomatoes have lycopene, sauteeing them with a little olive oil boosts this antioxidant's bioavailability.
Chopped salads are popular lunch fare, as they're delicious and easy to eat, with a riot of flavor, texture, and color in each bite. Here, you'll find recipes featuring chicken, shrimp, pork, chickpeas, and canned tuna.
