Friday night I was exhausted, but I was really craving for something absolutely ridiculously delicious to eat, and not just… blah (like I normally cook blah? Sometimes I don’t get myself) anyways, really secretly inside I wanted
poutine healthy food.
However, that would’ve costed money to go out and get it which we don’t have. It’s amazing how much money you can save when you’re on a tight budget! Anyways, it’s Fridays, we don’t eat meat on Fridays so I was thinking fish.. I had salmon defrosting in the fridge, and then I thought of Tuna and then I thought of Burgers = TUNA BURGERS! I used to make them again when I was in high school but had gotten out of the habit.
Here’s what I used!
- 4 cans of chunk light or flake light tuna. (Chunk light holds less water which is better for burgers)
- 2 stalks of celery chopped up fine.
- 3/4 of an onion
- 3 pieces of garlic
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup of gluten free all purpose flour or gluten free bread crumbs
- 2 TBSP of olive oil
- 2 tsp of Mrs. Dash
- 1/4 tsp of Montreal Chicken spice
- 1/4 tsp of salt
- 1/4 tsp of allspice
- Dash of cloves
- Dash of nutmeg.
I know, I love my spices, maybe a bit much. 😡
Mix all ingredients together, mix, add, change whatever you like. I cooked them how I cooked my chicken spice burgers except they don’t have to be cooked as long, they are much thinner and are super quick and easy to make! Excellent go to recipe.
It makes around 12 medium size burgers.
I served it with steamed cabbage seasoned with olive oil and soy sauce. Great meal!
On another note, if you haven’t checked out my last post about indoor cycling check it out! It’s a great workout!
