This dish travels well, can be eaten cold or at room temperature, is a delicious finger food, children can even help their parents to make them the night before (perhaps by filling up the tomatoes), and they have good nutritional value, too.

- 8 pearl or small Roma tomatoes
- 1/4 Cup canned tuna in olive oil, drained
- 1/3 Cup cooked quinoa
- Pinch of salt
- Pinch of pepper
- 1 Tablespoon olive oil
- 1 Teaspoon lemon juice
Cut the tops off each tomato with a paring knife, and reserve for later, if using. Spoon out the seeds and pulp. In a bowl, mix together the tuna, quinoa, salt, pepper, oil, and lemon juice. Fill each tomato with the quinoa mixture and press well. Cover with the tomato tops, if desired.
