Protein-Packed Spicy Vegan Quinoa with Edamame

"I adapted this from a turkey burger recipe when I went vegan. It is also gluten-free if you use gluten-free soy sauce. I use it as a post-workout meal, as it is delicious, satisfying and relatively high in plant-based protein. Enjoy!"

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Bring water, quinoa, and vegetable bouillon to a boil in a large pot; stir in edamame, cover, and simmer until quinoa is tender, 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onions and bell peppers until onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Add ginger and garlic; cook and stir until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in soy sauce, cilantro, and chile paste.
  3. Stir onion mixture into quinoa mixture; simmer, stirring occasionally, until excess broth has been absorbed, about 5 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • This can be served immediately or refrigerated for up to 1 week and reheated.
  • I buy frozen shelled edamame in packets from Trader Joe's(R).
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

Very easy to make, packed SO MUCH more flavor than a lot of quinoa recipes, and even got rave reviews from meat eaters:). It was also excellent the next day for leftovers.

My family LOVED this healthy recipe.

Instead of making the quinoa from scratch, just adding two packages of cooked brown rice mixed with quinoa (available at Costco) to the veggie mixture is easier and VERY tasty. This also does n...

Perfect as is!!!

We used this recipe during a Daniel fast. So good even my picky eaters enjoyed it.

Enjoyed this flavor twist on quinoa from the other ways I've made it. Great blend of textures and flavors. I tried this because I had nearly all the ingredients on hand already... I subbed Srira...
