> 3 tbsp vegetable oil
> 2 tbsp tomato paste
> 1 tsp smoked paprika
> 1 (16 oz) bag frozen fiesta blend mixed vegetables
> 1 (10 oz) bag frozen long grain rice
> 1 cup canned chickpeas
> 1 cup frozen peas
> 2 tsp chili powder
> 1 lb fresh tuna steaks
> 1/4 cup roasted cashews, coarsely chopped


Heat 2 tbsp oil in a wok and fry the tomato paste and paprika for 30 sec. Add the mixed vegetables and stir-fry for 5 min. Add the rice, chickpeas, frozen peas and ¼ cup hot water and stir-fry 5 min. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Meanwhile, mix the remaining oil with the chili powder, salt and pepper and brush on tuna. Heat a ridged grill pan without oil or butter over high heat and cook the steaks for 3 min. on each side (be careful not to overcook).
Sprinkle the cashews over the rice. Serve with the tuna steaks.
