Baon For Grown-Ups: Creamy Tuna and Mixed Veggies Dish.

by Rose

It’s very hard to get creative with lunch ideas if you’re an employed individual. More often than not, people prefer to eat out since it saves them the effort of preparing their food at home. For someone who’s tired of the same meal plan week after week, I love experimenting with simple baon hacks I read about on magazines and blogs or those I happened to watch on cooking shows. But while I can cook certain dishes, I usually leave it up to my sister since I prefer preparing the ingredients to be used for a particular recipe.

We came across this Creamy Tuna and Mixed Veggies dish while watching Idol sa Kusina one weekend. It was shared by actress Sunshine Dizon who thankfully added that her kids weren’t picky with the veggies she incorporated into the recipe. They loved it so much they call it Mommy’s Best Tuna. And because the ingredients are readily available in your nearest grocery store, we decided to do our own version of it.



  • 1 can corn kernels
  • 1 (small) can mushrooms (pieces & stems)
  • 1 can green peas
  • 1 can cream of mushroom
  • 2 pcs carrots, blanched and cubed
  • 1 all-purpose cream
  • 1 can tuna (large)
  • 1 onion
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 1 clove garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste


Saute onions and add mushrooms. After a few minutes, add bell pepper and garlic. Slowly add carrots, green peas and corn kernels. Add tuna. After five minutes, add cream of mushroom and let it simmer. Lastly, add all-purpose cream and season according to taste. Let it simmer for another 5-10 minutes and then serve.


I loved how this recipe is very versatile because it can work as a rice topping, pasta sauce or dip for crackers. Definitely a good alternative when you’re at a loss on what to have for lunch baon aside from the usual.

Yumyumyum! Ma-try nga sa balay! Hehe.

Nagchange na lage kag blog, Rose? And why dili naka WordPress? Hihihi

Hey Janine! Yup, this is so easy to do. Pwede ra jud especially if ganahan kaayo mog tuna.

Ni-expire na akong hosting and la nako budget to renew it. Hehe! Will return to blogger lang sa for the meantime because as much as I'd like to take a break from blogging, mangita man jud kag masuwat from time to time and I don't like to overshare on FB. 🙂

I wouldn't usually bring baon to work before because like you said, it can be time-consuming, hehe. Also, I was always in a hurry that I would even miss my meal. I'd just go to work directly and eat at the pantry or elsewhere.

I love Tuna so much. This looks easy to do. Maybe I can do this at home too. 🙂
