Tuna Patties

Ingredients

  • 1 head (283 g) cauliflower, broken into florets
  • 2 cans (283 g) 10 oz. albacore tuna, drained well
  • 1 egg, plus 1 egg white, or 2 whole eggs
  • 5 Tablespoons (40 g) nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • ½ cup (80 g) red onion, finely chopped
  • ½ cup (80 g) fresh spinach, finely chopped

Directions

  1. Place cauliflower florets into a microwave safe bowl with 2 Tbsp. water and microwave for 2 minutes. Allow to cool briefly, then place into your Vitamix Food Processor fitted with the Multi-Use blade.
  2. Pulse 5-6 times or until cauliflower has obtained a very fine, couscous-like texture. Empty cauliflower into cheesecloth or a strong paper towel, and wring out all excess moisture. This is necessary to ensure the patties will hold together.
  3. Place all remaining tuna patty ingredients into a bowl and mix together. Scoop golf-ball sized amounts of the batter and form small patties, placing on a dish and refrigerating for 15-20 minutes to firm up.

Sauce

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (240 ml) nonfat greek yogurt
  • 2 Tablespoons chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, sauce only
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt, optional
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder

Directions

  1. While patties are chilling, combine all sauce ingredients in a small bowl and stir to incorporate.
  2. Set a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat and spray with olive oil. Carefully place patties into the skillet and cook until golden brown on one side, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook an additional several minutes until patties are hot all the way through.
  3. Serve immediately with sauce if desired.
