    Jodi Consoli's Note:

    A gluten free, dairy free Tuna Casserole. I came up with this because Tuna Casserole is a comfort food for me, but I can no longer eat the gluten-full pasta or make it with the creamed soup that my recipe calls for. I tried many different things using various milk substitutes and no pasta (or gluten free pasta) but this is the best recipe I came up with.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 2

    Yield:

    cups

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 1/2 cups water
    • 1/2 cup polenta, uncooked
    • 5 ounces tuna, drained
    • 1/4 cup peas
    • 1/4 teaspoon celery salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon dill weed, adjust amount to taste if using fresh
    • 1/2 teaspoon herbes de provence
    • 1 bay leaf
    • 2 tablespoons butter substitute, non dairy

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Open can of tuna, measure peas, and have spices ready to measure - it is important to stir constantly in the beginning to avoid lumps so I like to have everything ready to go.
    2. 2
      Bring water to a boil.
    3. 3
      Stir as you sprinkle in polenta.
    4. 4
      As you add the rest of the ingredients (except butter sub.), continue stirring.
    5. 5
      After the polenta has thickened and the peas are no longer able to float, you only need to stir it every few minutes.
    6. 6
      Add butter substitute.
    7. 7
      Cook for about 20 minutes so flavors have time to blend.
    8. 8
      Serve warm.
    9. 9
      Refrigerate leftovers immediately.
