This simple tuna curry bowl is made with pantry/freezer staples and comes together in less than 20 minutes so it’s perfect for a quick and healthy weeknight meal!

Can of Genova Yellowfin Tuna

I’m excited to be partnering with Genova tuna to create this recipe. Their canned tuna is some of the best tuna I’ve tasted. It doesn’t smell or taste super fishy and when you open the can you see actual chunks of fish. It’s wild-caught, non-gmo and Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified, which means the fish are responsibly caught by a certified sustainable fishery. Learn more about the MSC certification here.

All of the ingredients for this curry tuna bowl are frozen or shelf-stable so the recipe is pretty budget-friendly and perfect for those nights you find yourself saying, “Shoot, we didn’t plan anything for dinner.”

I don’t know about you, but we always have a few cans of tuna and coconut milk in the pantry, as well as, a bag of stir-fry veggies and cauliflower rice in the freezer. If these items aren’t something you always keep on-hand, here’s your sign! Stock up when the ingredients are on sale and you’ll have them ready to go whenever you need a quick meal.

Trust me… everyone needs a quick go-to meal like this tuna curry bowl in their back pocket.

    Delicious and filling recipe! We had our doubts about the tuna, but I thought it married well with the curry flavor. Could you by chance insert a conversion for if we wanted to use fresh vegetables instead of a bag of stir dry veggies?

    1. So glad you enjoyed this recipe, Madeline! You could totally use fresh veggies. I’d do about the same, so 16 oz chopped veggies, which would equal about 2 cups.

  2. This was sooooo good! We grilled tuna bc I’m a self admitted fish snob. (I grew up at the beach, soooo) All three of my kids gobbled it up and asked for more!!

  3. We almost have all that is needed for this recipe, and since I’m going to the store this weekend (I go so often, haha), I’ll pick up the remainder! Matt and I love cauliflower rice to change things up, so this’ll be on our meal plan for the coming work week!

    1. Hi Sharmaine. Cauliflower rice is just tiny bits of cauliflower that looks and has a texture similar to white rice. You can make it by chopping cauliflower really small with a knife or your food processor. Check out this post for more info. Lots of stores sell it in bags now too! Hope this helps.
