Just Curry Tuna Cakes
"Be bold and mighty forces will come to your aid."... Mom, Almost Famous
This recipe caught my eye a few weeks ago on one of the blogs I follow - http://carrotsncake.com/ . I really admire Tina who is the woman who started Carrots N Cake as she was one of the first big healthy living blogs. She even got a book published of her recipes which really shows you how powerful this medium has become. Tina is also one of the "founders" of the Healthy Living Summit which is an event that I hope to attend next year. It's great to see an example of someone who followed their bliss and through time and dedication turned their passion into their profession.
Here was the recipe:
Curry Tuna Cakes
1 can of tuna, drained
1/2 tbsp coconut flour
1/2 tsp curry
1 tsp minced garlic
Salt + pepper to taste
Coconut or olive oil for the pan
Combine all ingredients (except oil) in a bowl; blend well.
Divide tuna mixture in half and then form into two cakes.
Heat pan on medium-low heat and coat with oil.
Add tuna cakes to pan and slowly cook on each side until lightly browned.
Remove from pan and serve immediately.
Makes 2 cakes
I was sort of intrigued as to how canned tuna would be cooked. With all of the spices it was actually quite delicious. Sadly my cakes did not hold their shape quite as well as Tina's. I think people are a little too concerned sometimes with how foods look. When you are cooking alternatively you have to accept that it might not turn out as perfectly as you would like. With some avocado slices and roasted asparagus on the side it honestly did not matter. I recommend checking out the blog and this recipe.
