Add the tuna and its oil into the bowl.
3
Boil the kale for 1 minute in salted water, transfer to a colander and cool under running water. Drain and pat dry and transfer to a bowl.

7

Tips & Note

●Quinoa is from South America, it contains lots of protein, iron, Vitamin B and minerals...it's well known as a superfood. Bulgar wheat is the whole wheat kernal, it's steamed then dried then cracked - it also has lots of fibre and minerals.
