Easy One-Dish Quinoa and Tuna

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Little Mama Dia

This recipe is a super easy and quick way to incorporate whole grains packed with protein into your diet. You can throw in veggies that need to be used and spice to suit your mood :) It's a flexible dish that you can throw together in a jiffy. I usually substitute water for broth and add extra seasoning.

We didn't like this very much. It just seemed off with the tuna. I think we will try this again but with chicken in it, or without meat. Thanks!
