Tuna Nuggets Recipe

September 12th, 2011

As promised, here is the Sneaky Tuna Nuggets recipe using Soyami chips.

First off, why the word sneaky in the recipe name? It’s because there’s *whispers* sweet potato and carrots in it. No kidding. Yes, sweet potato or better known as camote and carrot IN it. This recipe was introduced by Nadine Tengco, a certified nutritionist.

It is important to pack in the nutrients without sacrificing the taste and in this case, we got a healthy and tasteful recipe:

Here’s the super easy-to-prepare Tuna Nuggets recipe with words in italics as my variation:

  • 1 can Red Label Century Tuna Solid in Water, drained (I used two)
  • 1/3 cup sweet potato and carrots puree -> boiled sweet potato and carrot chunks, mashed or pureed (I used 3/4 of a cup)
  • 1 Omega 3-enriched egg (You can use ordinary egg, I think I used the Vitamin E enriched variety)
  • 1 pack crushed Soyami Chips in plain flavor (I used bread crumbs because I only got a pack of Soyami chips for this)
  • 1 tbsp chopped green onions (I used 2 tbsp)
  • 2 tsp reduced sodium soy sauce (I used ordinary soy sauce)
  • 1/8 tsp McCormick ground onion (I used very finely chopped onion)
  • 1/8 tsp McCormick ground garlic (I used grated garlic)
  • 1/8 tsp black or white pepper

  • Cover and chill for 30 minutes
  • Form into small nuggets or small patties
  • Pan fry in little oil until lightly browned.
  • Serve with teriyaki sauce or bottled Coconut Aminos (we used tomato ketchup)
