This is for “Big Tuna”. Easy and quick.
Makes about 12 patties
10 oz (300 g) potatoes, boiled with their skin on and chilled 1 can (7 oz- 185g) tuna in oil, drained, flaked 1/2 cup corn kernels 2 spring onions, chopped 1 egg lemon zest from 1 lemon 1/2 cup breadcrumbs Salt and freshly ground black pepper 2 tbsp olive oil 1/2 cup breadcrumbs, for coating Directions 1. Mash the potatoes using a potato masher. 2. Add the tuna flakes and mix with a fork. 3. Add corn kernels, chopped spring onions, egg and breadcrumbs. 4. Finally add lemon zest and season with salt and pepper. Stir well to combine. 5. Divide mixture into 12 portions. Shape them into patties. Place breadcrumbs on a plate and add the patties to coat. 6. Heat oil over medium high heat in a nonstick pan. Cook patties for about 3 minutes on each side until golden brown. Transfer the patties to a plate lined with paper towel to remove excess oil. Clean the pan with a paper towel and repeat until all patties are done. 7. Serve with your favorite salad, and sauce. We served it with our homemade chilli jam.
This sure beats McDonalds, Burger King or Carls Junior.
For the Onions:
Super innovative way to prepare pasta in a pan.
Arrange the organic tomatoes, spinach, onion, garlic, and chilli across the base of a large frying pan. Put the spaghetti in the centre of the pan and pour over the olive oil and 600ml of water or chicken stock. Place the pan over a medium high heat and bring the contents of the pan to the boil. Stir the pasta regularly and cook for about 9 minutes until it’s cooked and the liquid has nearly evaporated creating a sauce. Remove the pan from heat and stir though the pecorino cheese and basil. Season with sea salt, oregano, parsley and ground black pepper to serve.

This is a great lunch idea. Rich in greens and can be frozen for future meals.
Kale can provide you with some special cholesterol-lowering benefits if you will cook it by steaming. The fiber-related components in kale do a better job of binding together with bile acids in your digestive tract when they’ve been steamed. When this binding process takes place, it’s easier for bile acids to be excreted, and the result is a lowering of your cholesterol levels.
Raw kale still has cholesterol-lowering ability—just not as much. Kale’s risk-lowering benefits for cancer have recently been extended to at least five different types of cancer. These types include cancer of the bladder, breast, colon, ovary, and prostate. Kale is now great for detoxing! New research has shown that the ITCs made from kale’s glucosinolates can help regulate detox at a genetic level.
