My mum’s tuna bean bake, perfect student food

My boyfriend is a student living in a tiny studio apartment by himself. He likes his food but can’t be asked to cook so when I go to see him I like to cook some decent meals for him, to get him off the pasta diet. This backfired once when he said he was going to make dinner for a change and decided to make a curry… He boiled some milk in a pan, added curry powder, some rice and chicken. This was his homemade chicken korma. I don’t think that I have to tell you that it was not the best thing I have ever tasted, unfortunately he liked it and declared that he would take charge of the savoury stuff and I’d do the sweet things. Luckily, he seems to have forgotten about that and let me cook on my last visit. Once I had gotten over the pile of mouldy plates piled in the sink (ewwwwwww!!!) I took charge of the kitchen and made my mum’s lovely bean and tuna bake dish. I decided to make it because it’s nice and cheap, easy and does not require an oven, which my boyfriend does not have in his studio.

a tin of white haricot beans

a tin of canned tomatoes

a can of tuna
