  • 1 Sweet Potato

  • 2 cans Tuna (drained and flaked)

  • 1/3 cup Almond Flour

  • 3 stalks Green Onion (chopped)

  • 1 Egg

  • 1/2 tsp Oregano

  • 1/2 tsp Paprika

  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt

  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper

  • 3 cups Asparagus (washed and trimmed)

  • 1 cup Cashews

  • 1 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • 1 Lemon (juiced)

  • 1 tbsp Nutritional Yeast

  • 1/4 cup Fresh Dill (chopped)

  • 1/3 cup Water


  • Peel sweet potato and chop into 1/2 inch slices. Fill a pot with water and bring to a boil. Place sweet potato in a steaming basket and steam for 7 to 10 minutes. Transfer into a bowl and mash with a fork. Measure out 1 cup mashed sweet potato (or 2 cups if you are doubling the recipe) and set aside.

  • Preheat oven to 425oF (218oC) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine tuna, mashed sweet potato, flour, green onion, egg, oregano, paprika, sea salt and black pepper together in a bowl. Mix well. Use your hands to form into even cakes. Drop the cakes onto one side of the baking sheet. Place in the oven and set your timer for 15 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, trim the ends from the asparagus and toss in olive oil and season with sea salt and pepper.

  • Remove the cakes from the oven after 15 minutes. Flip them and add the asparagus to the other side of the baking sheet. Bake together in the oven for another 15 minutes or until the asparagus is tender.

  • Meanwhile, create your dill mayo by combining cashews, olive oil, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, dill and water together in a blender or food processor. Season with a pinch of sea salt. Blend until a creamy consistency forms.

  • Remove from oven. Plate asparagus and top with tuna cake(s). Drizzle with desired amount of dill mayo. Enjoy!
