Liz's Rockin AWESOME tuna patties

Submitted by: SUNSHINELOVINS!

Introduction

My friend made these one day & I loved them so much I just keep on making them all kinds of different ways.

And they're low in fat, high in all kinds of vitamins & minerals & deliciousness---basically, they just rock! ;)

Mix up the veggies or try them with different seasonings for more variety. They go beautifully with a slice of melted white cheese and a toasted bun...mmmmmmmm.....

Ingredients

    1-6oz can of albacore tuna in water, drained

    1 small yellow squash, chopped (about a cup)

    1 small zucchini, chopped (also about a cup)

    1 biggish carrot, peeled & chopped

    2 longish scallions (or 3 stubbier ones), chopped

    2T chopped fresh cilantro (more or less to taste)

    .5c whole grain bread crumbs (I use the store brand, cheap & works beautifully)

    1 large egg, beaten

    1t black pepper

    Light cooking spray (I use Smart Balance Omega)...can use a splash of oil instead, but the recipe's nutrition info is based off using the spray

Directions

Drain the tuna & set aside.

Chop/dice the squash, zucchini, carrot, cilantro & scallion.

Lightly spray skillet & cook diced veggies over medium heat until slightly softened (5-10 minutes depending on your range top). You want the veggies to still have a little bite to them, some texture, so don't overcook them to mush.

Remove the veggies from the heat & allow them to cool slightly (just until they are not steaming off the heat).

In a medium bowl, mix drained tuna, egg, bread crumbs, veggies, & pepper. Form into 4 medium patties (you can make them bigger or smaller for any hunger levels).

Lightly spray skillet again & cook the patties over medium-high heat until heated through & golden brown on each side (3-5 mins per side).

Makes 4 medium patties.

Number of Servings: 4
