So I was in a tuna mood the other day and decided to try a new recipe. This one called for some strange ingredients I normally do not think of when it comes to mixing things, but it was delicious! I got the recipe here: Barbie’s Tuna Salad Recipe. I just omitted the dry dill weed since I didn’t have it on hand and too lazy to leave the house for it. I also added more tuna since I used two 5 oz cans instead of one 7 oz like the recipe calls for, which is why mine made 6 servings instead of 4.
I paired it with some vegetables and quinoa I threw together. All the ingredients I already had at home in my freezer or spice cabinet.
You just take a bag of organic mixed vegetables, follow the stove top instructions, add butter, quinoa (I cook them in big batches and freeze them in 1/2 cup portions so they’re readily available), and lemon pepper + cajun seasoning. Easy peas.
It’s incredibly filling but super low in calories, so you can either double up the portions or just have it as snack instead of meal like I did. All of this in under 20 minutes. If you have a partner, then it’d be like 10 if each person does one dish. Happy eating my lovelies. ~ xoxo
