· 1 cup uncooked Lotus Organic White Quinoa
· 2 cups water
· 3 cans of Wild Planet Albacore Tuna
· 1 jar of Global Organics Pesto Rosso
· 1 tbsp flat leaf parsley
· 1 cup of frozen peas
· 100g semi-dried tomatoes
· Handful of basil leaf
· Fresh cracked black pepper, to taste
Combine the quinoa, water and salt in a medium saucepan. Bring the water to a boil, then reduce a simmer and cover for 15 minutes.
Remove from the heat, keeping the pan covered and let it stand for 5 minutes, or until the remaining water is absorbed. Remove the lid and gently fluff the quinoa.
In a large pan with medium heat, toss together the quinoa, pesto, frozen peas and the tuna for few minutes, then mix the rest of the ingredients. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste.
Serve warm, room temperature or chilled.
