in search of post with specific recipe August 1, 2020 9:42 AM   Subscribe

I am searching for a certain AskMe post where someone posted a dead simple recipe involving rice and tuna...

...and none of my search results can find it. I screenshot it at the time but since have gotten a new phone and a lot of my screenshots didn't transfer over for some reason. Can anyone help me?

Here are a couple of possibilities: 1, 2.

Yep, that looked like the better recipe. Mine, with the tuba, seemed a little complicated. :)

My roommate taught me this tunarice variation: rice + tuna + bonobo flakes (or toasted nori crumbled up into flakes) + toasted sesame oil. I could eat nothing but this happily.

You could put the bonobo in the tuba perhaps.

Ooh Don Pepino that sounds really tasty... I love textures in food and the thought of toasted nori flakes with this is making my stomach grumble, legit.

(did you meant bonito flakes? dastardly autocorrect strikes again *shakes fist*)

I'll buy a small piece of smoked salmon and then sprinkle the rice cooked at home (rice cooker) with black sesame seeds, dried seaweed, and the rice spice the japanese kind. If I'm lucky, I'll have oshinko and the purple pickles

Hey, it me. Full disclosure, I am back to eating animals as I am a massive hypocrite, but I haven't had classic tuna-and-rice for a long time. That said, Don Pepino's additions to the base concoction sound incredible! One thing I might also add a dab of is Kewpie mayo.

There are a few vegan tuna replacements starting to appear on the market at the moment, which...I've tried a couple, and they're not there yet. But maybe that's because I was mixing them with cauliflower "rice" and not actual rice rice. Well-cooked white rice blots out many sins.
