Eat-Clean Tuna Burgers
Fun of Eating a Burger Without the Guilt!
"Is there anything better than a juicy burger? I think this version is superb! It provides the fun of eating a burger but not the guilt of eating unwanted fat. Adding zippy purple onions to the mix along with peppers and a surprising dash of molasses not only sharpens the flavor but increases the nutritional profile of this main course." -- Tosca Reno

1. Place tuna in food processor and pulse until meat resembles texture of ground turkey or beef. In large mixing bowl combine garlic, soy sauce, molasses, green onions, red pepper, Vidalia onions, sesame oil, herbal seasoning, and salt and pepper to taste. Add tuna. With clean bare hands, mix all ingredients until uniformly distributed. Divide into four parts and shape into flat patties.
2. Coat grill pan with olive oil spray. Place over medium heat. Place patties in grill pan, cook for 2 minutes and flip. Cook for another 2 minutes. This will make a rare burger. If you want your burger medium to well done, cook for another 2 minutes on both sides.
3. Meanwhile, cut buns in half (if they aren't already separated) and toast lightly. Spread bottom half with hummus. Place lettuce greens of your choice on top and set the burger on top of that. Add condiments of your choice and serve immediately.
Leaf lettuce or arugula leaves
Sliced purple onion
Mango salsa*or commercial salsa of your choice
