Savory Vegetarian Quinoa

I’ve been experimenting with quinoa and vegetarian cooking. Came up with this last night and it was delicious! I wanted to save the recipe here and share it with others. I topped mine with some chopped avocado and chia seeds for extra health benefits.


  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 carrots, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 4 large mushrooms, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups savory vegetable broth
  • 2 cups quinoa
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 cups baby kale


Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add carrots, onion, and mushrooms; cook and stir until softened, 5 to 7 minutes. Add garlic; cook and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Pour broth into the pot; bring to a boil. Add quinoa, soy sauce, and ginger. Reduce heat and simmer until quinoa is mostly tender, about 17 minutes. Add baby kale; cook until wilted, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand until quinoa absorbs remaining cooking liquid, about 5 minutes.
