    SandwichQueen's Note:

    I was recently sold on quinoa and how awesome it is! Gluten free, an almost perfect protein, easy to prepare, the list goes on! This is a combination of two recipes, one of which I altered. The first is from this site, (#16399, Quinoa-Toasted). The second is from (Caron's Kickin' Quinoa Salad), to which I made some changes. We thought it tasted a bit like sushi and loved it! Feel free to add more heat, but this had enough for our family as we've got wee ones. A large portion of the cooking time is cooling time.

    1. 1
      Rinse quinoa well in a fine-mesh strainer or cheesecloth (you want to rinse until the water is no longer cloudy and makes no more suds). Drain well and transfer to a dry non-stick skillet.
    2. 2
      Heat the skillet and quinoa over medium heat about 15 minutes, stirring, until quinoa is golden brown. Remove from heat.
    3. 3
      Begin heating 2 cups water in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add quinoa and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, 15 minutes. Remove from heat, uncover, and stir occasionally until cooled.
    4. 4
      Prepare vegetables while you are waiting for the quinoa to cool.
    5. 5
      Combine mayo, wasabi powder, lemon juice, tuna, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add in red pepper and cucumber and stir.
    6. 6
      Add cooled quinoa and stir to combine.
    7. 7
      Serve garnished with pickled ginger and avocados.
