BREAD MAKER.

I used yeast in the hope that this would react with the natural sugars and reduce the sugar content.

Place all of the above in the bread maker pan and select small loaf. Press start button.

TEXS COMMENTS

We found this too sweet, perhaps from the canned pineapple; fresh pineapple may be better or use dates instead. This should work well with most fruits and even nut. Gluten free flour should also work well.

This is high in protein and omega -3, packed with vegetables and loaded with nutrients, not to mention delicious too!

Ingredients

  • 2 x 95g cans tuna in spring water, drained use fresh if available, (any oily fish can be used, fresh tuna if possible.)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium red onion, finely chopped

  • Stir in the cooked quinoa, grated zucchini, season to taste with ginger and pepper and leave to cool slightly.
  • Using a loaf tin or deep ovenproof dish, brush the sides with olive oil and line the base with baking paper. Place very thin slices of pumpkin slightly over lapping round the sides of the dish.
  • Add the drained tuna into the vegetable and quinoa mixture and then add the beaten egg, mix well.
