Wild caught Tuna has high levels of omega 3 fatty acids that help reduce cholesterol that can accumulate inside the arteries of the heart.
I used canned tuna. The canned tuna I used is slow cooked and easy to use in the casserole. Canned tuna are excellent for easy lunches and snacks.
This Keto recipe is simple and easy to make. It is carb free and gluten free.
3 cans of wild caught tuna (15 oz)
1 lb broccoli cut to small bite size pieces
1 lb mushrooms washed and cubed
1 lb spinach cut
1 big red onion sliced
7 -8 cloves of garlic peeled and cut
3/4 cup of heavy cream
1 cup shredded white cheddar cheese
3 tablespoons of shredded parmesan cheese
1-2 serrano or green chili finely chopped (according to your taste)
2 tablespoons of cream cheese
2 tablespoons of mayo
4 tablespoons butter
1 heaped teaspoon garam masala
1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
1/2 teaspoon red chili powder
1 teaspoon garlic paste
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Salt 1/2 teaspoon ( you have to be careful about salt because the canned tuna has salt, and also the cheese)

In a pan add 4 tablespoons of butter and saute half of the cut onions , add the garlic paste and salt and a handful of cubed mushrooms, allow them to saute. Now add the chili powder, cumin powder and garam masala to it.
Now in a blender blend the other half of the sliced onions, peeled cut garlic and the remaining mushrooms and blend them till they become a paste. Then add this paste to the sauted onions and mushrooms in the pan. Allow the mixture to cook for about 5 minutes.
To this mixture add the cream cheese, mayo, heavy cream, shredded cheddar cheese and remove from heat and stir them till they mix completely.
Now add the tuna to the mixture, remove the salt water from the can and add only the tuna.
Now saute the broccoli with a little salt and pepper. Chop the spinach.
Take a 7/11 or 9/11 baking tray. Spread the broccoli, then the cut spinach, then the finely chopped serrano or green chili. Now pour the mushroom -tuna mixture into the tray and spred evenly. Garnish on the top with the grated parmesan cheese.
Place the tray in the preheated oven and bake for 30 minutes.
