Here’s a great weeknight meal that comes together quickly, is protein packed, and it’s super easy on your wallet. The tuna patties are baked in the oven instead of fried, and the cauliflower will have you thinking that you’re actually eating garlic mashed potatoes without the calories or the carbs. Did I mention this is easy on your wallet??
