Ingredients (serves 3)

  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed and drained
  • 2 cups water or vegetable stock
  • seeds from half pomegranate
  • 1 medium can tuna in springwater
  • half red capsicum, diced
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 100 grams feta cheese, diced
  • 1 handful pecan nuts, chopped
  • salt
  • olive oil
  • lemon juice


  1. In a saucepan bring water (or vegetable stock) to boil together with the quinoa and a pinch of salt. Cook for around 14 minutes, till nice fluffy. Add liquid if necessary.
  2. In a big bowl combine all ingredients, except the pecans. Season with olive oil, lemon juice and salt.
  3. Add the quinoa to the bowl and, as last, the pecans. Serve and enjoy!


This dish is nice cold too!

  • I love pomegranates they are a great fruit I would probably not like this with the tuna but that’s me thanks for sharing


  • Wow what an interesting combo will def test it out


  • Ive never really had quinoa before


  • Can you buy pomegranate seeds at Xmas time? Can you buy them in a tin too (weird question, sorry about that).


  • This looks so tasty and love the sweet with the tuna mix.


  • This would make another lovely side dish to the Christmas fare.


  • This is certainly different indeed.


  • Although I wouldn’t use this recipe myself (I’m vegetarian, lol), it’s always nice to see quinoa more widely used. I was introduced with quinoa for the first time when I traveled in South America 25 years ago and I’ve used it ever since. It’s a beautiful addition to a vegetarian diet as it’s protein rich :) .

    • It is. Absolutely. If you are a vegetarian, you could just keep the tuna out and maybe add something else you enjoy better. :-)


  • This seems like a nice combination.


  • Thank you so much to the administration for adjusting the recipe! :-)


  • I’m sure it will be nice with cranberries too, but I prepared it indeed with pomegranates. Sorry for the misunderstanding! :-)


  • Will try cranberries in this, a mistake must had been made as could not see where they go, might do them instead of the others.


  • I just wrote to the administration. I hope they will be able to fix the problem.


  • Ha! Ha! You are right! Why did I call it cranberry quinoa and not pomegranate quinoa? Thanks for noticing that. I will write the administration to see if they can change the title. Thank you!!!

    • LoL! Little ‘blips’ happen and I could see from the pic that it was pomegranates and not cranberries. Just noted it down and as I love pomegranates I am happy! :)


  • there are no cranberries in it!
