Spiced tuna and potato tots, 3 main ingredients, 3 spices and an unconventional tool.
Nothing more for these tasty bites, complete and good for any meal.
Spiced tuna and potato tots
I made these tuna and mashed potato tots by chance. The fridge was completely bare,
empty…and by empty I mean absolutely nothing.
I struggled with what I could find in the pantry wishing there were more to choose from. There was canned tuna and potato, so I made a tuna and potato recipe.
However, when you don’t have much you need to get creative and that’s where ideas come from. When you have to push yourself just that little bit further.
When you don’t settle with that ready-to-eat frozen, stuff.
In the end, it doesn’t take that much to sort out a balanced meal, even when you don’t have time to stop by the supermarket or you’re down on money.
Believe me, unfortunately, it happens more often than you might think.
In my kitchen, if there’s one certainty, it’s that we don’t run out of potatoes or sweet potatoes even more. At least we have something to eat 😀 hahaha!
First of all, I like them a lot, even boiled and seasoned with a little oil and salt, plus they are inexpensive and last, but not least, they are my dog’s primary source of carbohydrates. So there’s always some lying around and they’re ready to use.
You can also easily use sweet potatoes, now I can find them almost everywhere.
I think they taste amazing, but as I said in a previous post sweet-potato-peanut-butter-protein-bars I don’t find any difference with
white potatoes even at a nutritional level.
I’m experimenting a new fitness recipe with potatoes, but I’m still in its first stage, it’s just a sketch on paper. Before posting I usually do several tests.
I hope to be able to publish the final version soon.
Here’s just a hint: what if I say cod and potatoes? what’s the first idea that pops up? Stay tuned it’s worth it;) .
Update.Here it is:Potato wrapped cod.
But let’s come to the macros * of spiced tuna and potato tots:
How much does this tuna fish tot recipe cost **?
To make this dish, I spent a total of €2.60 for 1 serving. For the doses and the costs just double it because I did it in single portions.
The product availability is excellent, it’s all on the supermarket shelves. They are very simple to mould and the ice tray makes
everything clean and fast … that never gets old in the kitchen.
Lately, I’ve been making a lot of baked tots recipes, I love them and this tool is amazing.
The ice tray is a must in the kitchen…how could I make myself a nice cold shaken coffee in this hot summer without it? This is a
very serious matter.
TIP—-> You just have to remember to dampen the ice tray surface (without leaving water inside the holes) before putting it in the
freezer for about ten minutes, so it becomes easier to pop the squares out .
