I’ve been promising this recipe for like three posts now! Well here it is! These little patties are delicious, convenient, healthy, and a lot more interesting than staring in a can of plain tuna thinking, “I’m gonna eat this?”
Tuna Cakes (makes 6 patties)
- 3 4oz. cans of albacore tuna, in water, low sodium
- 3 egg whites
- 1/2 cup of oat flour
- 1/4 cup of plain non-fat greek yogurt
- 2 tsp of garlic powder
- 1 tbsp of ground cumin
- 1/2 tbsp of chili powder
- salt, pepper, and cayenne to taste
- 1 tsp of oil
Mix all ingredients in a bowl and stir with a fork, using it to whisk the mixture a little and break up the tuna.
Roll mixture into six equal balls and place on a plate. Heat a skillet and oil over medium-high heat and then place the patties in the pan, smashing down lightly with a spatula or a fork to form the patty.
Let cook about 3 minutes, then carefully flip and cook for another 3 minutes. Serve immediately and enjoy :). These go really well with black beans and avocado!
serving: 1 patty
