Tuna Cakes

Since the drive thru value meal is not an option for you (your standards are way too high for that!), here’s a quick and cost effective meal that delivers both in taste and nutrition. Serve with some plain Greek yogurt mixed with lemon juice and fresh chopped dill. Servings: 8

Here’s what you need:

• 3 (5oz) cans albacore tuna, in water

• 2 omega-3 eggs

• 1 teaspoon lemon juice

• 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

• 2 Tablespoons flax seeds, ground

• 1 Tablespoon fresh dill, minced; or 1 teaspoon dried dill

• dash black pepper

• 2 Tablespoons olive oil

1. Drain the tuna and flake into a medium size bowl. Add the eggs, lemon, Dijon, flax, dill and pepper. Mix well.

2. In a large skillet place the olive oil over medium heat. Form the tuna mixture into 8 patties. Flatten each patty onto the skillet and cook for 3 minutes per side.
