“You can tune a guitar but you can’t tuna fish. Unless you play bass.”
Recently I made a LARGE batch of tuna salad. OK. It was wonderful the first two days then quickly descended into good. I got to wonder if there was some way to tweak this great salad to nudge it back up to wonderful.
Then I found this recipe for tuna patties that had a bit of veggies in the ingredients. I wondered if I could use my tuna salad recipe with mega veggies and mayo and have some success. I was about to find out.
1 medium sized sweet potato, baked, peeled, and mashed
2 cups tuna salad
4 T almond flour – you might have to adjust this
1/2 t smoked paprika
a few shakes of hot sauce
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Mix everything together. Form into patties. I used a scoop and made about twenty small mounds which I flattened slightly.
Spray a baking sheet, use parchment paper if you like, and bake the patties for about 20 minutes. Flip them midway with a spatula.
These are delicious with a dab of mayo. And, just like the original tuna salad, these are chock full of veggies. I believe that these are going to be delicious cold. A nice quick snack or lunch. More delicious in my life!
