Meal Monday - Tuna Spinach Burgers

(I topped mine with a little smashed down home made gluten free sandwich bread)

3 T extra virgin olive oil, divided
1 package of fresh baby spinach (6oz)
2 cans of tuna, drained
1/2 small red pepper, chopped
1 T of dijon mustard
2 T mayonnaise
1 t seasoning (I did italian season, onion and garlic powder, basil, black pepper and salt)
1 egg
1/3 cup of parm cheese
1/4 chickpea flour

In a large skillet, heat 1 T of oil.  Cook the spinach stirring frequently for 2 minutes or until wilted.  Chop or blend in blender.  Break up tuna in a bowl, add spinach, mustard, mayo, spices, and egg.  Mix until combined. Stir in cheese and flour.  Shape into 4 burgers.

In same skillet over medium heat, heat the last 2 T oil. Cook burgers 6 minutes, turning once until golden brown.
