My Comfort Food: Easy Tuna Mayonnaise Rice


After a long day of work, it’s easy to just buy take-out food on the way home. But knowing that I have a fridge full of food at home, my conscience tells keeps telling me, “don’t spend money on food.” When I got home, of course my sister, dog, and I are already acting like couch potatoes. Usually, we’re active, but we have days when we’re extremely lazy.

After skimming through a few cooking channels on YouTube, I came across a Tuna Mayonnaise Rice recipe and decided try it. Thankfully I had all the ingredients, and all I to do was cook rice.

All you need is:

1 bowl of cook rice
1 canned tuna
1/2 tsp of salt and pepper
1-3 tbsp of Japanese mayonnaise (amount depends on the amount of tuna)
1-2 long green onion, finely chopped

First, open canned tuna and drain out some of the oil. I made the mistake of completely draining out all the liquid, and the tuna became dry. So, don’t drain all of it. Then add in Japanese mayonnaise, salt, and pepper. Adjust the seasoning to taste. I ended up using a lot of mayonnaise, since the canned tuna I used was 5 ounces. After, layer the tuna over a bowl of hot rice, drizzle more mayonnaise on top, and garnished with chopped green onions. And, you’re done!

This is the most satisfying meal I’ve ever had. My sister and I just kept going back for seconds. We even got a side of kimchi to eat along with it! When we were done, we were so full that our stomach hurt. Right after we were done eating, our mom called and asked what were we eating for dinner. She kind of went off about us not eating a proper meal – at least we’re not eating cup ramen haha.

Of course, our dog is patiently waiting for food to drop.
