Tuna Tofu Cucumber Patties

I got the big three-pack of cucumbers from Costco.   I had used two up to make quinoa salads.  But I had one more cucumber left in my fridge that needed to get used up and didn't know what to make with it.  I had too much quinoa salad and was over it.

So basically, this is the recipe I came up with.  I pretty much had everything else on hand.  I think if I made this again, I'd use celery instead of cucumber.  But it turned out fine.

I know, my leafy garnish is always limp and appears dead.  I don't have any fresh herbs besides green onion because that's the only thing that will live.   Additionally, the environment I live in is rainy and windy a lot of times and I don't think it's an ideal environment for the herbs I would like to grow.  I've tried mint, parsley, basil and cilantro and they're just not tough enough to withstand it.  Needless to say, I will be moving soon and it is highly unlikely that my plants will be moving with me. 😐

Here's the recipe:

  • 2 cans tuna, drained
  • 1 english cucumber, seeded and chopped
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 block tofu, crumbled/smashed
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 Tablespoon paprika
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup panko
  • olive oil, for cooking
  1. Combine all ingredients except the olive oil.
  2. Mix well and form into patties.
  3. Heat pan and oil.
  4. Brown both sides.
  5. Enjoy!
