See I'm back, thats the second time this month already hopefully I can keep on a roll!
I had a pretty lazy weekend, I got up for my hot yoga session Saturday morning then went home to hibernate away from the rain and cold which was lovely. No where to be I just got to hang out with Sid and catch up on some series I have been watching. I did decide to try out a pattie recipe that has been sat in my mind on Saturday night and it was a hit so I thought I'd do a quick blog post and share the recipe with you as they rocked!
I love fish cakes/patties and the flavours I used worked and other then the oil they were cooked in these are pretty healthy which is a bonus.
Gluten Free Sweet Potato and Tuna Patties
2-3 medium sweet potatoes
2 cans of tuna
1 bunch of spring onions
gluten free plain flour
2 slices gluten free bread
1 tsp chilli flakes*
salt and pepper
olive or coconut oil for frying
Wash the sweet potatoes (if needed) then put in the microwave and cook on high until all potatoes are soft.
Chop the spring onions and add to large mixing bowl along with the tuna, chilli and 1 egg, mix then once the potatoes are cooked scoop out the flesh and add to the bowl and mix. Season with salt and pepper and mix again.
Use an electric chopper and blend the bread into breadcrumbs and put in a bowl, whisk the other egg put in a bowl and add 2-3 Tbsp's of gluten free flour in a third bowl.
Make patties with your hands to whatever size you wish (I went big) and pat into flour, dip in the whisked egg then finally the breadcrumbs and set them down on a board. Once you have made all the patties get a frying pan on the hob.
Put either coconut oil or olive oil in the warmed pan and heat until a few bubbles appear (you'll need 2-3 Tbsp's of oil) carefully place your patties in the pan. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side or until each side is golden brown.
Serve with salad and enjoy!
*I use lazy chilli in a jar, you can obviously use fresh I just didn't have any to hand.
See an incredibly easy recipe to make these really tasty patties which are also very filling, I made 4 giant patties but you could make more and probably feed 4 people. Me and Dale are just piggy!
Let me know if you get a chance to try these bad boys out, have a great Tuesday!
