tuna-quinoa-pattiesThere are some recipes that just makes serving meal or snack an easy peasy breeze and these Easy Curried Tuna and Quinoa Patties is just one such recipe.

They are also what I call my 3-in-1 savior –  saves time (ready in 20 minutes), fingerlicking good (make an extra batch) and super healthy! Well, you’re not dreaming as this is very much a delicious reality.

While I prepped for the tuna patties, ‘D’ mentioned the following qualities of Bella Portofino Tuna:

1. They are made up of wild-caught and hand-selected tuna, extra virgin olive oil with a dash of sea salt for a smooth, mellow flavor, and tender texture.
2. They use extra virgin olive oil with a dash of sea salt for a smooth, mellow flavor, and tender textured tuna.
3. They are an excellent source of protein and natural source of omega 3, hence making them an ideal choice for healthy meals.
4. Non – GMO 

So, they definitely make for a MUST HAVE pantry ingredient to whip up a delicious and healthy meal in no time.

As I also mentioned earlier, these Curried Tuna and Quinoa Patties are my modern and light twist on a classic tuna patties, which has lots of cheese, mayo, and breadcrumbs.

Now, we definitely love that version but for us to enjoy the tuna patties as frequently as we like, my version is the perfect fix.

So apart from the tuna and multicolored quinoa as the base, we also need fresh juicy sweet peppers + onion that goes so well with the olive oil tuna and we definitely added some spinach (extra iron) and lots of lemon juice for that lightness.

We added some ‘Almond Flour’ instead of breadcrumbs to bind the mixture, however, you can use any flour (wheat/white/quinoa).




Also, I’m serving these Easy Curried Tuna and Quinoa Patties with a side of fresh cut vegetables like cucumber, sweet peppers, onions, jalapeno and some fresh cranberries.

And Yes, some light yogurt dip and ketchup. Now we usually eat a very light dinner, so this would do for us, however, you can totally add bread and serve it as a meal.




As always, enjoy these Easy Curried Tuna and Quinoa Patties and do try the Bella Portofino products for this recipe or your next tuna recipe.

    I've made a lot of patties, but never with a combo of tuna and quinoa. It sounds delicious!
