Ingredients

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

Seasonings: salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, red pepper flakes (optional)

Directions

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.
