  1. Boil your eggs: Place eggs in a medium-sized pot of water and bring to the boil. Once boiling, leave for about 6 minutes. Remove eggs with a slotted spoon and place into a bowl of cold water and ice. When cool, peel eggs and leave whole.
  2. Boil broccolini for 3-4 minutes until tender and bright green.
  3. In a dry pan, toast pine nuts, buckwheat kernels and hemp seeds before adding a splash of olive oil as well as the honey and tamari. Cook for one minute, and then set aside.
  4. Cook your quinoa: Rinse quinoa thoroughly and drain. Place in a pot with 2 cups of water and bring to the boil before reducing heat and simmering for a further 10-15 minutes until liquid is absorbed. Set aside.
  5. Whisk together the remaining olive oil, Dijon mustard, red wine vinegar, and a splash of water.
  6. Mix all salad components together in a bowl. Chop eggs into halves or quarters and scatter on top of the salad, along with the salad dressing and seeds.

Enjoy this tuna and avocado quinoa salad as a light and tangy dinner, and pack the leftovers away for lunch the next day. Enjoy!
