Something From Nothing Tuna Cous Cous Cakes

There are days when you just stare into your fridge or freezer for inspiration hoping beyond all hopes that inspiration hits you in the face or perhaps a chef will leap out and save the day.


Can of tuna drained

225g of cous cous

2 eggs to bind

You could perhaps add some left over mashed potato if you had any.

Optional tweeting your picture of your finished product to Phil Vickery and then in turn him rting it , who says you can't dine out on a story ???

Update : I have yet to dine out on this story 

But what a top bloke Phil Vickery is !! thanks for the RT .


Preheat the oven to 180 c

Hydrate the cous cous in your normal way.

Drain and add the can of tuna.

Next mix with the cous cous and add the 2 egg to bind, as if you only use one egg you 'll find the picture gets too crumbly.

Grease a baking tray other wise you'll be chiselling these off the tray other wise.

I shaped mine with spoons as if I was a Morris dancing waving what ever Morris dancers wave.

Then the flatten  a tad.

Placed them on the baking tray and baked for around 20 minutes but keep at eye on the oven you might need slightly less time according to your oven.

Then let cool down .

And you are ready .
