Taco Tuna Quinoa Sliders
Okay now let’s get to the Redux Challenge shall we? It’s a good one! Mostly because I’ve made these Tuna Cakes 237402384023850945304593480583490582 billion times, they are insanely easy to make and are amazing. I literally couldn’t keep them in the house long enough to get a picture.
April 2016 Theme: Limpin’ Along for Lunch
Ever get in a lunch rut? Need new ideas for packing your kids’ or your own lunch? Are packable noontime options dwindling? Surely you’ve met the ‘What shall I pack for lunch?” question head-on with creative ideas. Please share your healthy lunch recipe – so we can swap it into our own rotation.
One day a week or two ago Mr. Hungry declared “no more quinoa, I can’t do any more quinoa, NO MORE!” Well, that wasn’t going to happen because I had a huge batch of it pre-made and no other healthy carbohydrate source to substitute. Then I had an EUREKA moment, I’m going to bake them into sliders that won’t even be recognized as quinoa!
Since Mr. Hungry also would like a long break from tuna salad I figured I could use the tuna up by adding a can in for some healthy lean protein. After that, I went and taco-fide them, which is literally the best part of the whole thing. The result? Mr. Hungry has been asking for some of those yummy taco cakes! This is how I feel about that ——> I WIN I WIN I WIN!
These Taco Tuna Quinoa Sliders are the ultimate make-ahead protein-packed lunch, snack, or whenever option. They are freezable so you can make a million of them to have whenever you want ( like I finally decided to do!) Did I mention they are only five ingredients? Simplicity for the win!
