On a Budget: Low Carb Tuna Burgers

As you could see two days ago, I took these tuna burgers with me in a bento. I wanted to share the recipe fairly quickly because it fits this time of year perfectly when everyone is picking up healthy eating habits. These tuna burgers are low carb, budget friendly, easy to make and most important: delicious. They are tasty even when they are cold so therefore they are an excellent choice to take to work or school for lunch. The original recipe is from

Low Carb Tuna Burgers: (makes 8)
- 1 can of tuna, drained
- 1 egg
- a bunch of fresh chives
- 0.5 tsp paprika
- 1 heaping tbsp grated cheese
- pepper and salt

Make sure you drain as much fluids from the tuna as you can. You will have about 100 gr tuna leftover. Mix all the ingredients. Heat some oil in a pan. Shape 8 patties from about 6-7 cm. Bake the burgers for 5 minutes on each side until they are golden brown on medium heat.

You can eat the warm or cold. If you want some dipping sauce I can recommend garlic yoghurt or tzatziki.
