One of the difficulties I am finding with having to go starch-free and milk-free, is finding food that we can shove into our mouths quickly (and apparently taking good photos at night from your iPhone – soz about that). Finding food for when we are after a snack and, boom, there is something already made and waiting for our tummies. I am so used to having pre-making foods waiting and being very organised with our meals, but I have struggled a little bit with finding recipes that hit the criteria for this. I can’t believe how many foods that have starch in them….hidden starch. A type of apple, some quinoa, certain yogurts, beautiful bananas, rice flours, beans, cashews, almonds with their skins on! I used to use these all the time in my cooking and now Kirk has to avoid them. I’m feeling major pressure to come up with alternatives!
I am learning that this change is going to take time and I can’t be too hard on myself. We don’t need an incredible starch-free chocolate mud cake right now (who am I kidding….of course we do!!).
One recipe I have enjoyed making and gobbling up are these Egg & Tuna Patties. Quick, easy, effortless, quick. We get plenty of eggs from our chooks, and there is always a tin of tuna in the cupboard (tested for starch and thankfully none…in this brand anyway).
Egg & Tuna Patties
- 2-3 eggs
- 1 small tin of tuna in olive oil
- pinch of salt and pepper
- 1 spring onion
- *optional: cayenne pepper, minced raw mushrooms
- Combine all the ingredients in a bowl
- Heat a pan with oil or ghee
- Pour mixture onto hot pan in patty shapes
- Cook one side and flip over to cook the other
- Serve with a lovely, fresh salad!
