Tuna Cakes- Jaime Olivers Food Revloution

So Sara inspired me to really get our family eating better... I have wanted to get more veggies in our meals for a while and just needed an additional push to get it going. So for our revolution we are going to take it one step at a time. First will be adding more veggies to every meal. Then we will pick an additional goal to get working on... here are a few more that we will add. Drinking more water and less crap, eating less sugary items and more things naturally sweet like fruit, adding more LEAN protein and less carbs etc...

The Best thing is that you can customize and make your OWN revolution... so get on it pick one thing and start today!

Today's recipe looked more healthy at first... maybe the frying killed it in the end... BUT we got our veggies in, and tuna is a great source of protein AND it's cheap!

Tuna Cakes


2 cans of light tuna in water, drained, flaked
1 pkg. (6oz) stove top stuffing mix for chicken
1 Cup kraft 2% milk shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 Cup Water
1 Carrot, shredded
1/3 Cup Miracle Whip Dressing
2 TBS Sweet Pickle Relish

Mix all ingredients.


Refridgerate 10min. Heath large nonstick skillet sprayed with cooking spray on medium heat. Add 1/4 Cup portions of tuna mixture, in batches to skillet.

Flatten into patties with back of spatula. Cook 3 min. on each side or until golden brown.

We served this will a side of cottage cheese, warm CORN and a side salad... (see adding more veggies)
Hubs gave it a 1 spoon he hated it, I gave it 5 spoons, I wanted to eat the whole set myself... The sweetness of the carrots and the relish were delicious, and I will be making it again... maybe along side Salmon patties since Hubs likes those.


  1. You're reminding me to try and get more tuna into my meal rotation too! I love that we're all inspiring each other with new ideas, this is awesome!!

  2. This would be a brave step for us. We eat tuna chilled but cooked, I've never. It looks like a good place to start!

    Thanks for sharing,


I'll trade ya a comment for a smile!
