Nutritional Bonus: Largely thanks to the tuna, a single serving of this recipe delivers over half of your daily recommended intake of protein, niacin and selenium and a whopping 176% of your daily vitamin B12. That's important because vitamin B12 helps control levels of the amino acid homocysteine levels – excess homocysteine has been linked to heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis and Alzheimer's.
