INGREDIENTS

    For the patties:

    • 2 cans (280) Tuna, drained
    • 1 cup (175g) Quinoa + 2 cups (480ml) water
    • 3 Eggs
    • 1 small onion, chopped
    • 2 cloves Garlic, crushed
    • 2 tablespoon chopped parsley
    • Salt to taste
    • Pepper to taste
    • 1/2 teaspoon Cumin
    • 1 teaspoon Paprika
    • Olive oil for frying

    Dipping sauce:

    • 1/2 cup (125g) Yogurt
    • 1-2 tablespoons raw tahini
    • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
DIRECTIONS

1. Rinse the quinoa under cool water, until the water comes out transparent. Put rinsed quinoa in a medium saucepan. Add water, 1/2 teaspoon salt and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes until the quinoa is fluffy. Remove from heat and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork. Let cool. Transfer to a large bowl.

2. To the quinoa add chopped onion, chopped parsley, tuna, eggs and spices. Mix until combined. Form into patties.

3. Option 1: In a large pan with olive oil. Fry the patties for 3-4 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Transfer to a paper towel.

4. Option 2: preheat oven to 350F (175C). Place the patties on a baking trey lined with parchment paper, spray each patty with oil and bake the patties for 25-30 minutes, until golden.

5. Make the dipping sauce: in a small bowl whisk all sauce ingredients.
