I have a recipe that requires flaxseed meal, I want to know can I replace it with flour, or just not use it at all, here is the recipe
Parmesan Tuna Patties by BamaGal
Page 29 - Neighborhood Cookbook
1 (6 3/4-oz) can albacore tuna
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 large egg
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons ground flaxmeal
1 dash garlic powder
1 dash onion powder
1 dash salt
Drain tuna. Blend all ingredients in a medium size bowl and form into patties. Fry in oil (I use olive oil, but you may use cooking spray) until brown on edges. Turn. Fry until done.
Contributor's Note: These are VERY GOOD and creamy! Takes away the "fishy" flavor of the tuna. Fry up extras to refrigerate for snacks or quick lunches later.
Editor's Note: Flaxmeal, made of ground flaxseed, is rich in omega-3 fatty acids which appear to help lower the risk of heart disease. Flaxseed adds a mild nutty flavor to foods and should be included regularly in a healthy diet. Weight loss surgery patients should use ground flaxmeal rather than flaxseed for digestibility reasons.
