So it’s been a while since I first made these Tuna Quinoa Cakes. Somehow I ended up with a backed up ‘drafts’ section in my queue, and it’s finally their turn to shine!



  • 2 4 oz cans tuna, drained
  • ¾ cup cooked quinoa
  • 1 cup yellow squash, grated
  • 1 cup zucchini, grated
  • ¼ cup red onion, diced
  • ⅓ cup shredded mozzarella
  • 2 tablespoons whole wheat flour
  • ½ teaspoon lemon pepper
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika
  • 1 egg


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grate squash and zucchini. Wrap in a paper towel to squeeze out excess water. Add to a large bowl
  3. Mix all ingredients together in bowl with squash and zucchini.
  4. Spray a muffin pan with non-stick spray, and fill muffin cups to top with mixture. Should make about 7 cakes.
  5. Bake at for 20 minutes until heated thoroughly and browned.
