Health Highlights


1/2 cup Mayonnaise
1 tbsp drained Capers, canned
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
2 tsp Lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
1/2 tsp Parsley, dried
1/4 tsp Garlic powder
1/2 cup Quinoa, uncooked
1 cup Broccoli, raw
1/2 ring White onion (minced)
1 cup Tuna, albacore, flaked, canned in water (drained)
1/2 cup Almond flour/meal, Bob's Red Mill (or gluten-free breadcrumbe)
2 clove(s) Garlic (minced)
1/4 tsp Dill, dried
1 tsp Sea Salt
1 tsp Black pepper
2 medium Egg
2 tbsp Coconut oil


For the sauce:

In a small mixing bowl, combine mayonnaise, capers, mustard, lemon juice, parsley, garlic powder and refrigerate in an air tight container until ready to serve.

For the patties:

Cook the quinoa according to package directions. Drain and cool.

In a medium sized skillet, sauté the broccoli and onions in 1 tbsp coconut oil over medium heat until they are beginning to turn soft, about 5 minutes. Remove from burner and cool.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the quinoa, broccoli and onions, tuna, almond flour, garlic, and dill. Season with sea salt and fresh ground black pepper.

Stir in the eggs.

Warm 1 tbsp of coconut oil in a 10-12 inch skillet over medium heat.

Pack a 1/4 cup metal measuring cup with patty mixture and carefully ease the mixture out into the skillet. Use the back side of a spatula to press the mixture into a three inch patty, about 1/2-3/4 inch thick.

Reduce temperature to medium low, and fry the patties for 3-5 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown. Add more coconut oil to the pan as needed. Serve warm or at room temperature with the lemon caper sauce.
