Recipe Ingredients for Tuna Mornay

425 gram Tuna , (in spring water or brine NOT oil)
5 tablespoons cornflour
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon pepper, black to taste
1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
1 chicken stock cube, crumbled
4 spring onions, chopped finely
1 cup corn kernels (frozen are fine and easier)
500 ml low fat milk
50 g grated cheese

Recipe Directions for Tuna Mornay

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.

  2. Place 100ml of the milk in a medium saucepan. Add cornflour, peppers, stock powder/crumbled cube and mustard powder, whisking until cornflour is dissolved. Whisk in the remaining milk.

  3. Stir frequently with a wooden spoon over medium/low heat while the mixture thickens. If any lumps form, simply whisk them away and return to stirring with the wooden spoon.

  4. Once the sauce has thickened (it should coat the back of the spoon) take it off the heat and stir in the tuna, spring onions and corn.

  5. Pour the mixture into a casserole dish and cover the top with grated cheese. Pop into the oven (uncovered) for 20-30 minutes until the onions are soft and the cheese is golden. Serve with salad.
