Brown rice puttanesca

Puttanesca is one of my most favourite sauces but I don’t like pasta….so I make it with brown rice. This also make it gluten free

1 cup brown rice
1 small tin tuna
1 tablespoon capers
2 anchovies
2 tablespoons kalamata olives, chopped (I only had green olives on this occasion but kalamata work better)
1/3 cup parsley, chopped
1/3 cup Tuscan cabbage, torn in small pieces
Chilli, to your taste
Zest of 1 lemon
1/2-3/4 cup Tomato based sauce (read ingredients carefully – a lot contain sugar)
1/4 cup grana padano, finely grated (I used a zester)

1. Cook brown rice
2. Once drained, pour brown rice back in the pot & throw in all remaining ingredients except grana padano – stir until everything well blended & the parsley has softened slightly (otherwise the taste is too strong)
3. Top w grana padano & serve immediately
