Vegan Quinoa Recipes
15+ easy vegan quinoa recipes! Quinoa (pronounced KEEN-wah) is a good source of protein and fiber among many other nutrients. It is also a complete protein which means it contains all nine essential amino acids. Quinoa is often classified as a grain, but technically it is a seed, making it gluten-free. It is hearty, versatile, affordable, and simple to cook. Quinoa is available in three different varieties: white, red, and black. (Plus tricolor which includes a colorful mixture of all three.) Each variety has their own distinctive flavor and characteristics, but are usually interchangeable in recipes.
Tip: Always be sure to rinse your quinoa well before cooking. This helps remove the natural saponin coating which can add bitterness. I often cook my quinoa in vegetable broth (rather than water) for more flavor.
