  • 2 cans 5oz. albacore tuna, drained
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 slices of sprouted grain bread, processed into ¾ cup breadcrumbs

  1. First begin by sauteing your chopped white onions in 1 tbsp olive oil for about 5-10 minutes until lightly browned. Set aside.
  2. Next, combine your tuna, eggs, yogurt, homemade or store-bought breadcrumbs, oat flour and Old Bay together into a large bowl. Mix well.
  3. Form into 4 to 5 medium-sized patties (about 3 inches wide) and place delicately onto pan coated in 1 tbsp of olive oil on medium heat. Cook on each side for about 2-3 minutes until lightly browned.
  4. Preheat oven to 400º and place burger buns in the oven for 5 minutes to toast.
  5. Cut your tomato into thin slices and place on top of your tuna burgers with a sprinkle of microgreens and ¼ cup of kraut onto each burger. Place each tuna burger onto a bun, eat and enjoy!

By Heinen's Grocery Store
In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
