Red Quinoa & Tuna Fritters


These red quinoa and tuna fritters are totally on the money!! Simple and quick and great fun for kids to help with. Definitely grateful for leftovers so I can have one for lunch tomorrow …


1 cup cooked red quinoa, or any variety of quinoa (cook as per instructions on packet)
185g tin of cooked tuna (low salt)
1 cup fresh herbs, chopped – I used basil and parsley
2 medium eggs, or 3 egg whites, whisked
Rind of one medium lemon
1 teaspoon dried chilli
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
3 tablespoons toasted sesame oil


Heat the oil in a large non-stick fry pan.

In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients and shape into four patties.

Fry on a medium heat, turning after about 5 minutes. They will be crispy and crunchy on the outside. Keep an eye on them so they don’t burn. Turn when ready.

Serve with fresh avocado and toasted seed mix.

Perfect, perfect, perfect supper after a long day at work and it literally took me 10 minutes because I already had the cooked quinoa … really … try this one!!
