Heat the butter and oil in a pan.
Add the chopped onion and fry until it is softening, then add the pepper and chilli (if using) and continue frying for two minutes.
Add the rice and mix well to coat it with the butter and oil,
Then add the tomatoes and vegetable stock and bring to the boil. Cover with a tight-fitting lid, reduce the heat and simmer very gently for about 15 minutes or until the liquid has been absorbed and the rice is cooked.
Heat a pan of boiling water, plunge the beans into the water, then boil for a minute and drain.
Gently stir the beans and tuna into the cooked rice mixture, replace the lid and leave to cook through for five minutes.
Delicious served garnished with chopped parsley or coriander.
You can replace the green beans with frozen peas. For an even healthier dish, replace tuna with canned oily fish such as salmon, sardines or mackerel, which contain Omega-3 fatty acids. Use sustainable canned fish when possible.
