Serves 4


85 g x wholemeal bread, torn into pieces

200 g tin x sweetcorn, drained

2 x 185 g tins tuna in water, drained well

25 g x cheddar, grated

3 x spring onions, finely chopped

1 x egg, beaten

2 tbsp x vegetable oil

4 x whole grain bread rolls (gluten-free if preferred or use cabbage leaves for lighter meal)

Optional - salsa, mayonnaise, tomato ketchup, harissa for burger sauce


  1. Whizz the bread in a food processor to crumbs, tip into a bowl, then whizz half the sweetcorn until finely chopped.

  2. Add the chopped corn, remaining whole corn, tuna, cheese, spring onions and some seasoning into the bowl with the bread and mix well.

  3. Add the egg, bit by bit (you may not need it all), until the mixture is sticky enough to shape into four even-size burgers.

  4. Heat the oil in a non-stick pan, then cook the burgers for 5 mins on each side until golden and hot through the middle.

  5. Stuff into wholemeal buns with your favourite lettuce and a good dollop of salsa.
