20 Healthy Quinoa Recipes That You’ll Flip Over

The superfood that’s on everyone’s mind – and on everyone’s plate – these days is quinoa.

And it’s not just because it’s a gluten-free replacement for grains (it’s technically a seed).

Quinoa can be used to make all kinds of foods, it has an easily adaptable flavor, and it’s a great source of protein as well as magnesium, iron, vitamin B6, antioxidants, and insoluble fiber.

Even if you don’t like quinoa as a standalone side dish or salad, that doesn’t mean it’s not for you.

As you’ll see with these recipes, you have plenty of other options.

For example, you can cook it in a cheesy casserole, create quinoa flakes for a homemade granola, or use it for the base in a tasty one-pot dish.


Berry Quinoa Salad

Fruit salad is delicious, but it’s hardly a filling meal – unless you add quinoa, that is.

This is an awesome way to use up berries when they’re in season. Mix together a big bowl, and enjoy the berry salad over a couple days for breakfast, lunch, and snacks.

It’s also awesome for a summer potluck. You’ll be a hit with any vegetarians at the party, and it doubles as a healthy dessert for people trying to avoid the cookies and cupcakes.

1 tsp. orange zest

2 Tbsp. fresh orange juice

2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice

One-Pot Chicken, Quinoa, Mushrooms & Spinach

Chicken and quinoa are an incredible combo for a lean, high-protein dinner. Turn it into a one-pot meal by making a casserole, and soon you’ll have enough healthy comfort food to feed a family.

There’s not much to mess up in this recipe as long as you watch the time. Season the chicken, and sear it on both sides. Then cook the onions and mushrooms, add quinoa and chicken broth, and cook for 15 minutes. That’s when the chicken goes back in the pan to cook with the quinoa until the liquid is absorbed.

Serves 6


6 boneless skinless chicken thighs (about 4 oz. each), trimmed

3/4 tsp. crushed dried rosemary

1/2 tsp. smoked paprika

1/2 tsp. salt

Crockpot Italian Chicken & Quinoa Soup

Talk about a one-pot dinner. This soup has plenty of protein from the chicken and quinoa, plus it’s loaded with veggies like onion, celery, and carrots.

Serves 6


2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 6 oz. each)

1 cup chopped yellow onion

1 cup chopped celery

1 cup diced carrots

Superfood Quinoa Bowl

A bowl of veggies might sound like a small snack, or an appetizer at the most. Add quinoa, and suddenly it’s a complete meal loaded with nutrients.

There’s no need to explain the benefits of adding broccoli and kale to your diet – we all know by now they’re loaded with more vitamins and minerals than can be quickly summarized. Combine all these nutritional powerhouses in one bowl for lunch, and you won’t feel bad about having a cheat meal for dinner.

If you’re watching your fat intake, as always, start with half the dressing (as calculated in the nutrition facts), and serve the rest on the side.

Serves 2


Quinoa Salad:

1 cup dry tri-colored quinoa

2 cups chopped broccoli

1/2 chopped red onion

1/2 chopped red bell pepper

Cheesy Quinoa Waffles

healthy Quinoa Waffles Picture courtesy of Smart Nutrition

Waffles are a favorite brunch item, but even when they’re made with whole-wheat flour, they can be nutritionally lacking without the right toppings or side dishes.

This batter is totally grain-free with a base of lentils, eggs, and quinoa – which is technically a seed, although it offers similar nutrition and usefulness as whole grains – for a winning combo that ensures you’re getting over 20 grams of protein per serving.

These quinoa waffles are loaded with savory flavor from three kinds of cheese, and because there’s no need for maple syrup, they have a nearly negligible amount of sugar.

Serves 4


1/2 cup dry quinoa

1/4 cup red lentils

3 large eggs

1 large carrot, shredded

3 green onions, chopped

2/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1/2 cup cottage cheese (or ricotta)

Greek Quinoa Zucchini Fritters

healthy quinoa fritters recipe Picture courtesy of Delish Knowledge

Who says fritters have to be unhealthy? Just because a food is fried doesn’t imply that it’s lacking nutrition. Fry anything at a high temperature, and it won’t soak up very much oil as it cooks, which means you can indulge in fried deliciousness every once in a while.

These fritters are surprisingly low-cal with zucchini, quinoa, and just a touch of flour. Oregano and dill give them flavor, plus a creamy hummus sauce to pour on top.

Serves 2


Quinoa Fritters:

1/2 cup dry quinoa

1/4 cup diced onion

1 clove garlic, minced

3 cups grated zucchini, water squeezed out

2 tsp. dried oregano

1 tsp. dried dill

1/2 cup flour

1/2 tsp. baking powder

2 Tbsp. lemon juice

Sesame Ginger Teriyaki Salmon & Quinoa Stir Fry

healthy salmon quinoa recipe Picture courtesy of Ambitious Kitchen

Salmon is easy to bake, and it takes just enough time in the oven to prep a side dish. This quinoa does need to be cooked first to make it into a stir-fry, but you can make this a fast weeknight dinner by stocking your freezer with pre-made quinoa.

Once it’s cooked and cooled down, spread quinoa out on a big baking sheet, or put it into a large plastic bag and pat down into an even layer. Divide the frozen quinoa into your usual serving size.

You’ll need about three cups of cooked quinoa for this recipe; simply thaw on the counter for a couple hours before using.

Serves 4


Teriyaki Salmon:

1 cup teriyaki sauce

1 tsp. grated fresh ginger

2–4 cloves garlic, minced

Spinach Salad with Quinoa & Crispy Chickpeas & Avocado-Basil Dressing

When it’s perfectly ripe, an avocado can always be diced up to include in a garden salad. But its creaminess will upgrade every bite when you turn it into the dressing.

The salad itself is easy to assemble with baby spinach, quinoa, and a can of chickpeas. Complete the spinach-quinoa salad with avocado dressing by blending the fruit with fresh basil, garlic, and lemon juice.

Serves 2



1/2 cup dry quinoa, rinsed well

1 cup water

1 can (15 oz.) chickpeas, drained and rinsed

Red Quinoa Burgers

Black bean burgers have been a vegetarian staple for decades now, but this recipe integrates quinoa for a better macronutrient profile and even more health benefits.

The combination of beans and quinoa provides enough amino acids to make a complete protein, and although this meal is high in carbohydrates, they are complex carbs, ranking low on the glycemic index.

Serves 4


1 can (15 oz.) cannellini beans

2 cups cooked red quinoa

1/3 cup panko bread crumbs

2–3 cloves garlic, minced

Samoas Cookie Quinoa Bowl

When the neighborhood Girl Scouts start approaching your front door, remember this alternative that offers the same satisfying flavor as a Samoas cookie – but with the nutrition you’d expect from a bowl of sweetened oatmeal.

Since this is replicating the cookie, it’s high in healthy fats like coconut and almonds. Then there’s two dates for natural sugar that’s slower to digest and also comes with a couple grams of fiber.

Serves 1


3/4 cup cooked quinoa (about 1/4 cup dry)

2 dates, pitted

There are so many occasions to enjoy a good soup: to fight the effects of chilly weather, to boost your immune system, and to end the day on a calming, comforting note. There’s one problem with most soups, though, and that’s a lack of protein.

2 Tbsp. vegetable oil

1 cup finely chopped onion

4 cloves garlic, minced

Crock Pot BBQ Chicken Quinoa

Quinoa is like rice, which is great for lots of reasons, but it also means you usually have to cook it in a separate pot. That’s not the case when you use a slow cooker, the perfect kitchen appliance for dump-and-go meals.

This recipe starts with the staples of a lean dinner – chicken breast, a whole grain, and vegetables – and turns it into a comforting one-pot meal that requires minimal prep work.

Serves 4


1 cup dry quinoa

1 cup frozen corn kernels

1 cup diced red bell pepper

1/2 cup diced onion

2 tsp. minced garlic

1/2 Tbsp. ground cumin

1/2 tsp. chili powder

1/2 Tbsp. smoked paprika

Black Bean & Quinoa Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

To make this one-pan meal, you don’t even need a baking dish. Instead a whole spaghetti squash can be used to prepare this vegetarian dinner in the oven.

Start by roasting it for about an hour in the oven, and meanwhile cook quinoa in vegetable broth. Once removed from the oven, the insides of the squash are shredded with a fork to take on the texture of spaghetti. Mix with cooked quinoa, black beans, tomatoes, and seasoning.

Sprinkle cheese on top, and it goes back in the oven under the broiler just until the cheddar is gooey and all ingredients are warmed.

Serves 4


1 medium spaghetti squash (about 3 1/2 lbs.), cleaned

1 cup dry quinoa

2 cups vegetable broth

1 can (15 oz.) black beans

1 can (14.5 oz.) diced tomatoes with jalapenos, drained

Baked Quinoa Empanada

Empanadas are like a pocket pie, so almost any filling can be delicious. Yet we usually see empanadas with shredded meat, or sweet empanadas with cinnamon-sugar.

This quinoa empanada filling originates from northern Argentina, and although vegetarian, it’s full of flavor from goat cheese and black olives. To make these from scratch, expect to spend half a day in the kitchen preparing the dough.

Or save yourself a lot of labor by looking for premade empanada dough discs or using sheets of frozen puff pastry.

Serves 10


3/4 cup dry quinoa

1 large carrot, grated

1/2 cup chicken bouillon

Pinch of fine salt

1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

1 large white onion, finely chopped

Pork Fried Quinoa

This is a fun twist on a Chinese takeout classic: pork fried rice. This quinoa recipe calls for ground pork, but you can also use leftover diced ham or cooked tenderloin if there’s some in your fridge.

It’s also easy to change the vegetables, so you can play this one by ear depending on what’s in season (or in your freezer). Instead of carrots and asparagus, try bamboo sprouts, daikon, or edamame for more Asian flavors.

Serves 4


1 lb. 90% lean ground pork

2 large eggs

Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

2 tsp. corn oil

1 cup frozen peas and carrots

That’s why we test every ingredient of every supplement we produce for heavy metals, microbes, allergens, and other contaminants and ensure they meet the strict purity standards set by the FDA.
