This is by far me and my boyfriend's favorite dinner now. We were having my parents over for dinner for Wine Wednesday, and I wanted to make something besides our typical chicken dishes. I came across this recipe on Pinterest and decided to give it a shot, not really knowing what to expect.
I am so glad I "gave it a shot" because we try to make this a couple times a month. It is SO flavorful! It is also really easy to prep, and only takes 12 minutes to bake!
Ingredients (for 2):
Serve with rice and vegetables, ENJOY!
Usually I eat tuna for lunch, just plain old canned tuna mixed with some light mayo, mustard and relish, but tonight for dinner I decided to get a little creative!
I made some tuna patties, and topped them on a bed of spinach with a sweet potato, and drizzled a little spicy Dijon mustard on top!
Really flavorful dish, packed with protein, low in fat, and hit the taste buds perfectly!
1 can of Tuna (I get mine from Costco, 7.5oz)
1 T Chia seeds
3 T egg whites
1 T chopped onion
1 T chopped parsley
1/2 clove garlic and some garlic salt
1/2 T lemon juice
salt & pepper to taste
Mix everything together in a bowl and form two patties with your hands. Place on a heated frying pan for about 7 minutes on each side, or until golden brown/crispy edges.
Mine kind of fell apart when I tried picking them up with the spatula, so I might add more egg next time to help hold them together a little more. Maybe even a whole egg with yolk.
If you have any other variations, I would love to hear!
This recipe is dedicated to my mom. It's her own "creation" and she makes it so well! Every Tuesday is "taco Tuesday" and this is what we have. I love Tuesdays! This recipe is so easy and so delicious. It's something you just need to make to understand. I've made it myself before, and yes it was tasty, but there's something about your mom's cooking that just makes it so much better!
ENJOY!!!! ....and thanks Mom :) Missing Taco Tuesday's with you!
Eating healthy takes commitment, it's a lifestyle.
I love food, that's a given...but I also love to eat healthy. I try to workout three times a week, and eat a lot of protein. These are some snacks, meals, and desserts that are healthy, but also very good! Eating healthy doesn't have to be plain and boring!
