    Tuna Cakes--adapted from Hungry Girl




    Oooh, I just finished eating this, like 5 minutes ago and I am one happy camper! Well, a little sad now because lunch is over, but this dish gave me happy feelings as I ate it up and I really wanted to share it with you guys.

    Okay, it's from my cookbook, "Hungry Girl 200 Under 200" but I tweaked it just a little. If you love crab cakes, this is a wonderful take on that.

    Ingredients:

    One 6-oz can albacore tuna packed in water, drained
    3/4 cup Fiber One bran cereal (original)
    1/2 cup fat free liquid egg substitue
    2 tablespoons red onion, diced
    1 teaspoon French mustard
    1 teaspoon low fat sour cream
    1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
    1 teaspoon lemon juice

    Directions:

    Place Fiber One in a food processor or blender. Add some salt and pepper and grind to a breadcrumb-like consistency. Place half of the crumbs in a small dish and set aside.
    Place remaining crumbs in a medium mixing bowl. Shred tuna by hand into the bowl. Add the onions, egg substitute, sour cream, mustard, salt and lemon juice. Stir until thoroughly mixed.
    Line a large baking sheet w/parchment paper. Form tuna mixture into 7 mounds on the sheet. Allow to sit at room temperature for 15 minutes.
    Gently coat the mounds in the remaining Fiber One crumbs. Make sure to flip them and cover all sides well.

    Bringa large pan sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Cook tuna cake for 3 minutes on each side.

    (Each tuna cake has 40 calories).

    Here's my lunch--I ate my tuna cake on some Orowheat thin bread, spinach and tomatoes. Like I said, it was delicious!

    Looks fantastic! I guess its using the cereal that makes it healthier. Using the tuna makes it more accessible and less expensive!
