Tuna Deviled Eggs

Title: Tuna Deviled Eggs
Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Cooking level: Easy

Your Shopping List
(This will make six deviled eggs)
- 3 eggs
- Mayonaise
- Sweet Relish
- 1 can of tuna (small, no oil!)
- 1 square of cheese (cheddar)
- Garlic Powder
- Milk
- Salt/Pepper
- Paprika

Cooking Steps

1. First, boil 3 cups of water (or more, just be sure to fill your pot at LEAST half way, or until the water is high enough to cover the eggs in the pot.) Add some salt to the water to help it boil faster. Add the three eggs and let them boil for ten minutes.

2. When the eggs are done, place the pot in an empty sink and put four cups of ice in the water. This cools the eggs down, and will also keep them fresher longer. ☺

3. While the eggs are cooling, open one can of tuna. Chop it up finely, get it as small as you can. Put the tuna in a bowl with one generous spoonful of mayonaise and relish. Mix it up some, then add a pinch of garlic powder.

4. Add the cheese on top, then put in the microwave on HIGH for 45 seconds to let the cheese melt. Mix up the melted cheese as much as possible. Set the bowl in the freezer to cool down.

5. While the bowl is cooling, peel the eggs. Cut each egg in two.

6. In another bowl, fish out the yellow yolk with a fork or a spoon. Be careful not to break the white. Get as much of the yellow out as possible.

7. Add two tbs. of milk to the yolks, and mix it as much as you can together. Add a pinch of salt and pepper.

8. Get the bowl of tuna out and add small spoonfuls into the yolk. Mix and add until you have the amount desired. (I do not suggest using up all the tuna!)

9. Once all mixed, put a glob of the paste back into the egg whites. Don't put too much, it tastes much better with just a little, so be careful not to pile it on.

10. Add a little paprika on top, then set the eggs inside the fridge to cool for an hour or so.

Viola! Sorry there isn't an image, no camera. :)


Title: Risotto with tomato sauce and tuna

A Recipe to start of :)

Title: Stew
Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 2 hours
Cooking level: Intermediate

Your Shopping List
- Meat, sliced into cubes. Preferably beef. (I had about 500/600g)
- Onions, it needs to be the same amount as the meat
- 2 Paprika
- spices (Paprika)
- 2 Tomatoes
- Beef stock

Cooking Steps
1. Cut the onions into stripes and marinate your meat
3. Cut tomatoes
2. Then get yourself a big pot, put oil in and heat it up. Put in the onions and fry them.
3. Once the onions are looking close to glassy looking, fry the meat in a separate pan. Not too long! It's just supposed to look fried and then put it into the pot to the onions.
4. Now you need some beef stock, add it to the pot and make sure that meat is covered with it. You can add some wine if you want, but only a teeny weeny bit. Also add the tomatoes and some garlic. Also add the spices now.
5. While you let this cook, cut the paprika to have it ready for later.
6. After one hour of cooking, add the cut paprika.
7. Let it cook another hour then the meat will get very tender just as it's supposed to be.
