- 2 12oz packages of elbow macaroni
- 6 hard boiled eggs
- 1 cup thinly sliced celery
- 1 red bell pepper, medium chopped
- 1 green bell pepper, medium chopped
- 2 tomatoes, medium chopped
- 1 can drained tuna fish
- 1 1/2 cups mayonnaise or Miracle Whip
- salt and pepper to taste
Boil the macaroni until tender; then place the pan in the sink and run cold water over the macaroni until it is completely cooled down. Boil the eggs ahead of time, and run cold water over them until they are completely cool. Chop up the eggs into bite-sized peices.
Put the vegetables, eggs, tuna, and mayonnaise in to a very large bowl.
Stir until slightly mixed. Add macaroni and stir until completely mixed.
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1/2 cup amaranth
Combine water, the amaranth, and a pinch of salt in a small saucepan, bring to a boil, and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover and cook over low heat for 25 minutes or until the water is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Makes about 1 cups.
Variation with Mixed Tiny Grains: Mix teff, amaranth, and quinoa, the latter thoroughly rinsed, and cook as described.
