Name: Amount:
uncooked long grain rice 0.33 cup
salt 0.25 tsp
margarine 1 tsp
egg, or 1/2 cup egg substitute 2 ea
can water-packed tuna or salmon,drained and flaked 6.50
parsley 1 Tbsp
freshly ground pepper 0.25 tsp

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a 9-inch pie pan with nonstick pan spray.

2:

Combine the rice, 1 cup water, and the salt in a small saucepan; bring to a boil, cover, and simmer 14 minutes. Separate the rice grains with a fork.

3:

Beat 1 egg in a small bowl. Stir the margarine and beaten egg into the rice mixture. Press the rice against the sides and bottom of the pie pan to make crust. Spread the tuna or salmon evenly over the rice.

Layer slices of cheese over the top. Bake for about 25 minutes. Cut the pie in 6 equal wedges.
