Easy to make and healthy, these Gold Seas Tuna Cakes will be a hit as your kid’s school baon or as a healthy snack. You can eat it in between bread as a sandwich, with rice, or on its own with a creamy dip…
Today, I’m gonna be sharing an easy, affordable, healthy, and delicious recipe (lahat na yata nasa recipe na to) — and I’m sure it’s something your kids will like as well — Tuna Cakes (or Tuna Patties).
I learned about this recipe when I attended the #BentoYourGoldSeas event where I also learned how to level up my bento making skillz — ehem…LOL.
Just look at the snail shaped rice I made below….nice no?
You guys know that I don’t make bento. First, I don’t have the skills and second, I don’t have the tiyaga! All I can really do are easy to make bentos like this Halloween bento I made for Ykaie years ago and this hotdog rice balls. So I braved the rain going to Makati just so I could join the #BentoYourGoldSeas event. Besides, we are loving Gold Seas Tuna these days because it comes in chunks, it’s not malansa, and it has bold exciting flavors.
The event was facilitated by Kat Maderazo of BentoByKat.
They provided us all the materials including this personalized Yumbox for Purple…
Kat made shaping the snail and knowing more about bento-making easy for us by providing us with visual aids. The snail’s head was made of rice and the shell was also made of rice but is colored with beets. The eyes were made of spaghetti noodles, cheese, and nori.
We also made heart-shaped grapes, bear shaped sandwiches, and cut-out watermelons in different shapes….
I really enjoyed the event with these fellow moms and I came home with a new set of mom skill I can use to make my kids enjoy healthy eating a lot more.
Thank you Gold Seas Tuna Chunks!
