“I make this often as a light lunch since it is so easy, inexpensive and nutritious (check out the vitamin content!). Not to mention it is gluten free! I often substitute 1 1/2 cups broccoli for the green beans though it will make it more watery if you don't thaw the broccoli first and discard excess water (I don't do this typically though, I just throw the ingredients in a container the night before and let the broccoli thaw overnight and don't mind the extra liquid).”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 0.5 (3 ounce) can tuna (drained)
  • 0.5 (14 1/2 ounce) can green beans (drained, or frozen broccoli, about 1 cup chopped or 1.5 cups of the big spears)
  • 12 cup low fat cottage cheese
  • 1 tablespoon part-skim shredded mozzarella cheese
  • salt and pepper (to taste) (optional)


  1. Put all ingredients in a tupperware container and put in the refrigerator until you are ready to eat it.
  2. Microwave on high for 2 minutes, stir it up and enjoy!
  3. (Updated: If you substitute the frozen broccoli for the green beans, be sure to thaw it a bit first in the microwave and discard the resulting water to avoid it being too watery).
