  • 450 Grams of Tuna
  • 40 Grams of chopped onion (1/2 small onion)
  • 1 large carrot (shredded)
  • 2 cloves of finely chopped garlic
  • 4 egg whites
  • 20 grams of chopped chives
  • 40 grams of bread crumbs
  • Spices to taste

Cooking Instructions

Mix all the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. If you like spices you can chili or paprika here as well. I added chili to taste. Split ingredients into four patties.

Take a tray and cover with a non-stick piece of baking paper. Spray the paper lightly with low fat cooking spray. Grill patties on both side until brown.

Serving Suggestions

You can either serve the tuna patties in the traditional style with a roll and trimmings or with rice and vegetables. I had mine with a wholemeal roll, salad and chutney - very nice!

Do you need to have onions? I want to try this, but I don't have onions and don't feel like going to the store.
