Warm Quinoa & Tuna Salad

I love to find new ways to prepare quinoa, but this one was kind of an accident. A few nights ago it was just one of those nights where my hubby was working late, the kids had already eaten leftovers, and I was rummaging the cupboards for something for me. I got a bowl and threw in some ingredients I had on hand. It was so surprisingly good that I made a big batch of it today for lunch.

Warm Quinoa & Tuna Salad
2 c. cooked quinoa (about 3/4 c. dry, cooked according to package)
2 cans tuna, drained
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 roma tomatoes, chopped
1-2 carrots, diced and boiled until tender
1/2 c. mayonnaise
1 t. onion powder
plenty of salt and pepper to taste

I'm more inclined to use quinoa if I have some already cooked in the fridge. I just warmed it up in the microwave for this recipe.
So here are all my ingredients:

 Just toss them all in a mixing bowl, season with salt and pepper, and it's ready to serve. It's that simple!
 One of my kids insisted that she wanted something else for lunch today. I told her just to give it a try. After that, she ate 2 bowlfuls!
