Tuna and Quinoa Patties

Hi everyone! Today’s recipe is Tuna and Quinoa patties, they are so easy and delicious, I hope you give them a try!

  • 1 ½ Cups Quinoa (cooked and cold)
  • 2 Cans Tuna in Water (5 oz each)
  • 1 Large Egg
  • ½ Cup Dry Breadcrumbs (panko)
  • 2 Chopped Green Onions
  • 2 Tbsp Fresh Parsley
  • Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • Crushed Red Pepper
  • +2-3 Tbsp Coconut Oil

In a large bowl we will mix the quinoa with the rest of the ingredients, (everything but the coconut oil)

Remember the Quinoa is already cooked and cold.  And the Tuna is already drained.

Once all the ingredients are well incorporated, grab a bit of the mixture, and start making your patties, you can make them any size that you like.

You can bake them at 400ºF for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.
I’m going to pan fry them in coconut oil. So heat up 2 tablespoons of coconut oil on medium heat, (I sprinkled the oil with a pinch of kosher salt to prevent the patty from sticking to the pan.)

Pan fry each patty for about 3 - 4 minutes on each side  or until cooked and golden brown on both sides. Drain the patties on paper towels then serve.

Serve with a salad or your favorite side dish and Enjoy!
