Tuna Quinoa Cakes

I made these by accident. I meant to make sweet potato cakes and somehow ended up with these instead (I was spacing out). This was missing half a cup of sweet potatoes, apparently, so I guess I wasn’t completely out of it. I just…didn’t remember to include it. I’m awesome like that. They’re good though (assuming that you like tuna, obviously), and pretty darn healthy! I imagine some kind of yogurt tahini sauce or somethin’ would be kinda awesome on it. Recipe from here.

Tuna Quinoa Cakes

-2 cans tuna, drained
-¾ cup quinoa, cooked
-2 cloves garlic, minced
-1 tbsp lemon juice
-1 egg
-¼ c plain 0% Fage Greek yogurt
-1 tbsp dijon mustard
-1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
-1 tsp paprika
-½ cup whole wheat breadcrumbs

1) Preheat oven to 400 degrees.In a small bowl, combine the tuna and other ingredients and stir until well combined.
2) Bake for 20 min, flipping once. These can also be pan-fried, and you can use salmon instead of tuna.
