Simple, quick & tasty tuna burgers made with minimal ingredients. A great alternative to your regular beef patties. Low-fat, high-protein and really delicious.

Ingredients

The burger

  • 2 tins of tuna (2x£0.75)=(£1.50)
  • 2 courgettes (£0.80)
  • 1 egg (£0.75/6)=(£0.13)
  • 4 tbsp plain flour

Other Ingredients

  • 60 gram rocket salad (£0.50)
  • 4 ciabatta buns/burger buns (£1.00)
  • Sweet chilli sauce (£0.75)
  • Mayonnaise (£0.69)

Cupboard Essentials

  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes/ chilli flakes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt & pepper

Method

  • Start by grating the courgette into a large mixing bowl. Press some paper towel onto the courgette to absorb some of the excess moisture. After doing this, add the egg, drained tuna, red pepper flakes, a pinch of salt and black pepper to the grated courgette. Stir to combine and then slowly add the plain flour into the mix.
  • Add some flour to your hands and then form the tuna mix into 4 large burger patties. Once you’ve done this, add 1 tbsp of olive oil into a frying pan on a medium heat. Add two burgers in at a time so you have room for your spatula to get around them.
  • Rotate the burgers after 5 minutes and continue to fry the other side for another five minutes. They should be nice and firm once cooked and should pick up some nice browning/ crispy texture on both sides.
  • Optionally toast your bun in the pan used for frying the burgers. Plate up with a dollop of mayo, chilli sauce and a handful of rocket. Super tasty, super simple- a winner.
