Seafood Baby Bear Bites
My boy loves seafood! So, I had to make varieties of my baby burgers to make sure he was getting an array of nutrients. Tuna is a great source of selenium, niacin, vitamin B12, vitamin B6, vitamin D, phosphorus, and iodine.
- 2-6 oz cans sustainable tuna (packed in water)
- 2 TBSP preservative-free mayo (I use Primal Kitchen)
- 2 pasture-raised eggs or two gelatin eggs*
- 3/4 cup cauliflower
- salt and pepper
- Boil a pot of water on the stove.
- Chop the cauliflower off the stalk into large chunks.
- Once the water is boiling, add the cauliflower to the pot.
- Boil the cauliflower for 5- 10 minutes. It is done when you can easily stick a fork into one of the pieces.
- Drain cauliflower and add it to the food processor. Process in food processor until it is a rice consistency. This should be about 20-30 pulses.
- Open tuna cans and drain excess liquid.
- Add tuna, mayo, eggs, salt and pepper to the food processor, and pulse until blended.
- Place mixture into a large Ziploc bag and snip one of the bottom ends. The cut should be about a 1/2 long.
- Pipe small patties onto a lined baking sheet.You can either line your pan with a silicon baking mat or parchment paper. As you pipe out little patties, you will probably need to use your finger to separate the patty from the rest of the mixture still left in the bag. Each patty should end up being between 1/2 to 1 tsp big.
- Bake at 350◦F for 10 minutes.
*To Make Gelatin Egg
You may choose to use collagen eggs instead of chicken eggs in the case that your child has an egg allergy or sensitivity. Collagen is also a great source of protein to build strong bones, hair, skin, and nails. Plus, it has gut healing properties.
- 1 TBSP pasture-raised gelatin
- 1/4 cup water
- Dissolve gelatin into the water.
- Let sit or bloom for 5 minutes.
