Easy, High-Protein Tuna Cakes (with creamy garlic yogurt!)


Since I've been sharing a lot of breakfast recipes with you all lately, I really wanted to explore some easy & SUPER healthy lunch/dinner options instead! This is literally the EASIEST high-protein, low pretty-much-everything-else recipe in the book. ๐Ÿ™Œ

It takes literally THREE minutes to prep, less than ten minutes to cook - and it's got 49G of protein for the whole plate! It's fresh, it's tasty and it's filled with ingredients that are sure to get you in the mood for summertime. ๐Ÿ˜‰โ˜€๏ธ


I N G R E D I E N T S:

[for tuna cakes:] 2 small cans of solid tuna in water 1 egg 1 slice whole grain/ezekiel bread 1 cup arugula salt, pepper, oregano & garlic powder (to taste)

[for creamy garlic yogurt:] 2 tbsp 0% m.f. Greek yogurt 1 tsp lemon juice 2 tsp garlic powder 1/2 tsp black pepper 1/2 tsp oregano a pinch of salt

D I R E C T I O N S:

[for tuna cakes:] - be sure to fully drain both cans of tuna before adding into a medium sized mixing bowl - crush the solid tuna chunks with a fork until they turn into small flakes - crack egg overtop of tuna and whisk with fork to combine - pull pieces of bread apart into small chunks and add to bowl - add seasonings as necessary & mix until fully combined (I like to just get in there and use my hands!) - in a non-stick skillet, create three round disks with your tuna cake mixture - cook on medium for 3-4 minutes on each side - serve on a bed of arugula

[for creamy garlic yogurt:] - mix all ingredients in a small bowl - place a small dollop overtop of your tuna cakes, and enjoy!
