Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp ghee or unsalted butter, plus extra for greasing the dish

  • 1 tbsp diced celery

  • 1 tbsp diced onions

  • 1 clove garlic, smashed to a paste

  • 3 (170g / 6oz) cans tuna, drained

  • 2 cups cauliflower florets, cut into ½-inch pieces

  • 1 cup chopped dill pickles

  • ⅓ cup cream cheese, softened

  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise

  • ½ tsp fine sea salt

  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper

  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

  • Sliced green onions, for garnish

  • Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish

  • Cherry tomatoes, halved or quartered, depending on size, for garnish

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F. Grease an 11-by-7-inch casserole dish with ghee.
  • In a small skillet over medium-high heat, melt 1 tbsp ghee. Sauté the celery and onions for 2–3 minutes, or until the onions are translucent. Cook for another minute after adding the garlic. Place the vegetables in a medium mixing bowl. To the vegetables, combine the tuna, cauliflower, pickles, cream cheese, mayonnaise, salt, and pepper.
  • Fill the greased casserole dish halfway with the tuna mixture. If using, top with the cheddar cheese. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the cauliflower is tender and the top of the casserole is lightly browned. Remove from the oven and set aside for 5 minutes. Garnish with green onions, parsley, and cherry tomatoes before serving.
  • This dish is best served immediately, but leftovers can be kept in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in a baking dish for 3 minutes, or until warmed through, in a preheated 180°C/350°F oven.
