Help me. I'm allergic to fish. I'm scraping the bottom of my larder to find something for my boys for supper. I have all of the above but am not sure what to do with them as I can't eat the stuff and have to guess what tastes good. I have no mayonaise, otherwise they'd just get tuna/mayo sandwiches. What's easy??

Could you make a tuna pasta bake? Maybe with the veg added?

Do you have tinned tomatoes?

Tuna pasta bake, chuck it all in a pot (bar the rice and cous cous) sprinkle some cheese on top and pop it under the grill! Yum

Make a tuna casserole with the tuna tomatoes peas and corn Let it simmer for a while then at the end tip in some couscous and put a lid on it for 5 mins I often do this and it makes a lovely stew

With the tuna pasta bake, do you add the tomatoes or not? Otherwise isn't it a bit dry?

Thanks for the suggestions

Yes I would add the tinned toms.

Fab - thank you. I will give the pasta bake a whirl and next time will try the cous cous stew idea.

Just finished making a batch of flapjacks (which remarkably I've never made before) - another end of larder goodie.

If you have a potato, you could do tuna fish cakes and serve with rice/couscous, peas and sweetcorn.

Noddyhholder, I ended up making your cous cous thing after all as I ran out of time with the pasta. And it has been a hit. DH came home early and has tried it and says it's yum. So I think I will be making this again. Thanks for the idea
