Veggie Tuna Burgers
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
I used two eggs and almond flour (about a cup) in place of the bread crumbs. And I eliminated the salt, because I think canned tuna tends to have a lot of salt. They were really good.
This was a fairly simple yet very tasty meal. I found that the key to them staying together pretty well is to grate the veggies and cook them right up to the point of everything beginning to get soft. Then when adding it all together if it still wants to fall apart adding in a little extra egg does the trick.
I love this recipe in the summer when my garden is overflowing with zucchini and carrots. Very healthy and great flavor. The only issue I have had is they fall apart a little if the consistency isn't perfect. Otherwise, one of my favorite burgers.
I found these tuna burgers to be too sweet. Maybe a different vegetable mix would help, but I couldn't finish mine.
Great idea with the oatmeal, because I can't have wheat!!!! I want to try these!
This sounds wonderful. The only thing I would do differently is to exchange the 2 cups of breadcrumbs for perhaps a cup or a cup and a half of pulverized oatmeal, adding much more nutritional value. I will try these, using the oatmeal. Thanks
