I love tuna. Love! I have it at least thrice a week thrown into my quinoa with veggies, folded into an egg for an omelette, or mixed with pasta for a quick, healthy meal.

Here’s one of our favorite family recipes, Tuna Quinoa Spaghetti, not just because it’s quick, easy, and delicious, but also because it’s healthy!


[ Ingredients ]

  • 1 tbsp butter (or coconut oil as a healthier option)
  • 4 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1 can tuna chunks in water
  • 1 package quinoa spaghetti cooked according to package directions (I got mine at Healthy Options)
  • bunch of spring onions for garnish
  • salt and pepper to taste

  2. Drop tuna and cook for 3-4 minutes.  Add salt and pepper.
  3. Drop the pasta into the pan.  Mix well.
  4. Remove from heat and transfer into serving dish.  Garnish with spring onions and garlic.
