Tasty Tuesday – Tuna Quinoa

Yes, I am obsessed with quinoa AND Hungry Girl recipes.  Why?  Because they are quick and easy PLUS they are low in calories (or SmartPoints if you are on Weight Watchers).

Today’s recipe is great for lunch or dinner and the best part is that there are ONLY four ingredients (plus basic seasonings). Easy peasy!

Entire recipe: 307 calories, 3.5g fat (0g sat fat), 542mg sodium, 44.5g carbs, 7.5g fiber, 10.5g sugars, 25g protein — PointsPlus® value 7* — SmartPoints™ value 6.

MAKES 1 SERVING

Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes

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 (This is a great shortcut)
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.
