1/3 C Oats, whole, non-instant
1 Can Tuna, in water, drained (about 6 oz)
Nonstick cooking spray
1 Clove Garlic, chopped
1/2 C Chopped red onions
1/2 Large Potato, boiled with skin on, must still be warm
1 Tbl Lime juice
1 Tbl Taco seasoning mix
2 Egg whites
2 Tbl Fresh cilantro, chopped
1/2 Can Green chiles
Salt (to taste)
Pepper (to taste)
1 Put oats in a food processor and pulverize gently into a very coarse flour (should still be pieces of whole oats left)
2 Spray a small frying pan and sautee garlic and onion.
3 Mash together tuna and boiled potato. Add oat flour and taco seasoning. Add sautéed garlic and onion. Add lime juice, cilantro, chiles, and salt and pepper. Mix well.
4 Lightly whip egg whites in a separate bowl and fold them into the batter. Form into 4 patties.
5 Refrigerate so the patties firm up and hold their shape when cooked, 15 to 20 minutes.
6 Spray a larger frying pan and lightly fry the patties on both sides until they are warm inside.*
