Easiest Broccoli Tuna Casserole (Instant Pot)
Cooking on a boat is definitely different from cooking on land. On our boat, the galley is small (like most boats) so one-pot recipes are favourites. And ones that use the Instant Pot are even better like this Easiest Broccoli Tuna Casserole. It tastes just like a stove top version but takes less than 30 minutes and doesn’t use too much of my valuable kitchen real estate.
This recipe works with both dairy and non-dairy milk and cheese. I rarely have dairy milk on the boat as neither of us drink it, handsome hubby drinks his coffee black and my fridge isn’t that big. Same with cheese. There is usually some for HH’s sandwiches and even for special meals like pizza and lasagna but I find the Daiya shreds works just as well in casseroles like this. So use what you like and what you have.
This Easiest Broccoli Tuna Casserole recipe was made on a 37 foot Tollycraft using an Instant Pot 7-in-1 Electric Pressure Cooker – 6 Qt. See other boat tested and tasted recipes.
Stay safe and happy cruising!
- 5 cups uncooked egg noodles
- 1 tbsp canola or olive oil
- 1/4 cup chopped onion
- 32 ounces vegetable broth
- 2-5 oz cans tuna, drained
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 4 cups frozen broccoli florets
- 1 cup shredded cheese, dairy or non-dairy both work
- 1/2 cup dairy-free milk
- 1 1/2 tbsp nutritional yeast
- 1 cup frozen peas, optional
Heat Instant Pot using saute and add oil. Add onions and cook until translucent (about 5 minutes)
Turn Instant Pot off, add the egg noodles to the Instant Pot
Pour vegetable broth over and around noodles
Place tuna and broccoli over noodles and season with spices
Set Instant Pot to manual for 4 minutes. Once cooking complete, release pressure immediately.
Stir in nutritional yeast, milk, cheese and peas (if using) until cheese is melted and casserole thickens (about 5 minutes).
I use Daiya shreds for the non-dairy cheese and whatever non-dairy milk I have on hand (make sure it's unflavoured).
