  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 200g/7oz canned chopped plum tomatoes
  • 700g/11/2lb potatoes, cut into 5cm/2in chunks
  • 3 green peppers, seeded and roughly chopped
  • 900g/2lb fresh tuna, cut into chunks
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • Heat the olive oil in a saucepan over a low heat. Add the onion and
    cook for 8–10 minutes until soft and golden. Add the garlic and cook for
    a further 1 minute. Add the tomatoes, cover and simmer for about
    30 minutes until thickened.
  • Meanwhile, mix together the potatoes and peppers in a large clean
    saucepan. Add 300ml/10fl oz water, which should just cover the
    vegetables. Bring to the boil over a medium heat, and simmer for
    15 minutes until the vegetables are almost tender.
  • Add the tuna chunks and the tomato mixture to the potatoes and
    peppers, and season with salt and pepper. Cover and simmer for
    6–8 minutes until the tuna is tender. Transfer to four warmed large
    individual bowls, and serve immediately.
