I shared a potato pancake recipe a few days ago. Along side those pancakes were quinoa tuna bites. I originally created the bites at a paper crafting retreat about a year ago. Click here for the other yummies that were served with that meal.
Here is the recipe in case you want to try it. This recipe is a little different from the original since it makes a smaller quantity. It makes enough patties for about 4 meals.
Tuna Quinoa Bites
1 – 12 oz can tuna in water, drained really well
about 1/4 cup cooked onion
1 large egg
about 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
Mix all ingredients in a bowl, adding more or less quinoa so the mixture is slightly wet.
Fry on both sides in extra virgin olive oil and serve hot. I tried frying in coconut oil this time and that worked well. Those patties had a slight coconut flavor. I would use the coconut oil again:)
I cook 1 cup of quinoa and use it for other dishes. Yesterday I sauteed about 2 tablespoons of coconut oil with green beans. Added some cooked quinoa, cashews and curry powder to make a quick meal. Today, the quinoa went in a mug of chicken stock with leftover chicken and lots of garlic powder to make a warming mug of quick soup.
I’ll share more recipes to help you make something delicious too. So check back soon!
