MAKES 1 SERVING
Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes
1/4 cup uncooked quinoa, rinsed thoroughly
1 cup asparagus cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
One 2.6-oz. pouch StarKist Tuna Creations Sweet & Spicy (This is a great shortcut)
Seasonings: salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, red pepper flakes (optional)
In a small pot, combine quinoa with 1/2 cup water. Bring to a boil, and then reduce to a simmer.
Cover and cook for 12 minutes, or until water has been absorbed and quinoa is fully cooked.
Meanwhile, bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Add asparagus and 1 tbsp. water. Cover and cook for 2 minutes, or until partially softened. Uncover, and add bell pepper. Cook and stir until water has evaporated and veggies have softened and lightly browned, about 4 more minutes.
Transfer quinoa to a medium bowl, and season with a dash of each seasoning. Add veggies and tuna, and mix well. Serve warm or chilled.
