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.

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!

  1. Thanks for sharing this awesome Gold Seas Tuna Cakes recipe! Directions are easy to follow and easy to make.

  2. Those tuna cakes looked amazing and I loved all the other shapes that you made in that lunch box. I think any tuna loverwill like a lunch like this one and you made it seem so easy.

  3. Oh my goodness what cute little lunches!! I am gathering ALL the ideas for my little one who is off to Kindergarten in the fall. These look simple + delicious!

  4. This looks like a good quick and easy thing to make the family. thanks for sharing-my family loves tuna melts!

  5. I never did those bento lunches. Thank goodness my kids were never into them. I have four kids and not a lot of time. I want to try the tuna cakes. This recipe is very simple and easy.

  6. Yum! I’d love to try my hand at these. They sound really delicious, and I’m a huge fan of tuna as are most of my kids. I bet they’d love these!

  7. This bento lunch box is SO cute! I just love the creativity and this would make me want to eat the lunch. The tuna patties look amazing, i will be trying them soon.

  8. I have had Salmon Patties but never thought of making Tuna Patties so I may make this to see if hubby and son would try them because they refuse to eat Salmon Patties with me even though I love them and grew up on them.

  9. I find myself wishing I had that packed in my lunch today!
    My boys should like those and I need some ideas heading into the school year too – thanks!

  10. I used to have a can of tuna mixed with a microwaved baked potato for lunch and never thought about frying them until now. I make salmon cakes but never tuna. I think I’ll try other fillers as well: sweet potato; butternut squash; cauliflower; onion; green/red/yellow bell pepper; etc.
