Tuna, quinoa, mint and tahini bites

I’ve found that making lunchbox items for us all and freezing them one of the most time saving things for the days I’m working. It means a little bit of organising on weekends but it’s worth the effort.

Today I made up these tuna, quinoa & tahini “bites” and they’re really delicious.

Ingredients:
1 x 425gram tin of tuna, drained
1 cup uncooked quinoa, cooked as per packet directions and drained really well
1 carrot, grated
1 zucchini, grated
4 mushrooms, grated
1 egg
3 tablespoons tahini
2 tablespoons of chopped mint or other fresh herb of your preference
Semolina to coat (or breadcrumbs) – I used this to ensure they were really crispy which is often what sells something to my Mr 4

Method:
Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
Mix all the ingredients except semolina together. Form into small, tightly packed balls and roll to coat in the semolina.
Place on a lined oven tray and slightly flatten to form patties.
Bake for about 10 minutes until brown. Turn and bake them for another 10 minutes or until brown.

Serve with some salad and some natural yoghurt to dip.

Yum! I promise!
