Cheesy Tuna Patties & my Green Goddess Dressing – Thermomix

Cheesy Tuna Patties with my Green Goddess Dressing

While I’m so excited to have my gorgeous new kitchen I’m not so excited about cooking at the moment, still too hot!  So, I’m all about meals that minimise my time in the kitchen and only require the oven on for the briefest moment.  The husband is away travelling at the moment as well so I’m happy to eat kid food with a grown up twist meaning that leftovers can go in the lunch boxes and I don’t have to deal with them in the morning, YAY!  This lead me to today’s offering of Cheesy Tuna Patties with my version of a Green Goddess Dressing.

The girls weren’t interested in being Green Goddesses though, more like Tomato Terrors which is fine as more for me to go on salad the next day too.  Like this…

Green Goddess Salad

I made both the tuna patties and the dressing in the Thermomix to save time and effort but they can be just as easily be done in a blender.  The Cheesy Tuna Patties recipes makes about 16 and the Green Goddess Dressing makes about 2 cups.

Want to know what the secret ingredients is in the dressing, it’s not anchovies as most recipes use but ……

Cheesy Tuna Patties with my Green Goddess Dressing - Thermomix


  • 1 C breadcrumbs or 2 slices of stale bread
  • 140 g cheddar or tasty cheese, roughly chopped
  • 1 x 425 g tin tuna in spring water
  • 2 spring onions roughly chopped white part only
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp dried tumeric
  • 1 Tbsp dill (fresh or dried)
  • 1 Tbsp parsley
  • 1 egg
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • For my Green Goddess Dressing
  • 300 g sour cream
  • 3 spring onions
  • 1/2 avocado
  • handful of tarragon (when chopped will be about 3 tablespoons)
  • 1 garlic clove
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • salt & pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Put the breadcrumbs and cheese in the bowl and chop Speed 6 / 10 seconds
  3. Add the tuna, spring onions, lemon juice, herbs, tumeric, salt & pepper and egg and combine Speed 6 / 6 seconds
  4. Scoop out dessert spoon sized amounts of mixture and press into patty shapes
  5. Drizzle some olive oil over the top and cook in the oven for 10 minutes or until golden
  6. While the patties are cooking make the dressing by putting all the ingredients in the bowl (no real need to rinse out as the extra flavour compliments the dressing but up to you) and blitz Speed 8 / 30 seconds.
  7. Stack the tuna patties on a bed of your favourite salad leaves and then pour the dressing over the top (or if you have kids like mine save the GG for the adults and tomato sauce theirs up!)
  8. Makes about 16 patties and can be frozen

Other uses for the Green Goddess Dressing could be for fish taco’s, we had those the other night and would you believe I actually set the taco shells on fire, it had been a bad day so while I have no idea how it happened it didn’t surprise me that it did.  I went to bed early that night to make the day over!!

(BTW, I’m trying to learn more about Pinterest to use it more effectively rather than just drool over photo’s and pin them!  Apparently Pinterest likes collage style photo’s for foodie type things so here’s one I prepared earlier and please feel free to Pin It!).

    Hi Vicki!

    If I can’t get a hold of some fresh tarragon for the dressing – can dried be used!? If yes, how much!? Could another herb be used too!?

      Hi dried can be used it will just give it a slightly different texture. You really can throw in any herbs in you like I just used tarragon as it’s in traditional “green goddess” dressings.
