Tuna Burgers

Some really easy patties that taste great and seem like they’re probably decently healthy. I quite liked the texture of these – sort of creamy inside (although if that sounds gross to you, just ignore it, there’s probably a better word to use there…). I’ll definitely be making these again, and why not, they come together so quickly!

Totally a balanced meal. Totally.

Ingredients:

  • garlic – 2 cloves, chopped + sauteed
  • shallot – 1 clove, chopped + sauteed
  • 1/2 cup baby spinach
  • 2 5 ounce cans cans tuna, packed in water, drained
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons mustard
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • dash each salt and pepper

Heat a bit of olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat and cook the garlic and shallot for a minute or two until softened. Add the spinach and continue to cook until wilted.

Transfer the cooked vegetables to a medium bowl and add the remaining ingredients, stirring to combine.

Use your hands to shape the mixture into 4 patties.

Heat some more oil in the pan, then cook the patties until browned on each side, 3-4 minutes per side.

Serve on a bun, on a salad, or with whatever sides you desire. Yum!
