30 Best Easy Quinoa Recipes

These are the best 30 Easy Quinoa Recipes for healthy whole-grain breakfasts, dinner, snacks, and desserts!

One of my favorite things about quinoa is how easy it is to prepare (see here for my guide on how to make perfect stovetop quinoa every time).

It's also an incredibly versatile grain. From sweet to savory, you can enjoy quinoa in dozens of delicious ways. It works at breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert.

The 25 quinoa recipes on this list include my quickest and easiest. From one-pan meal prep recipes to 30-minute dinners, you'll find unique and healthy gluten-free, vegan and meat-based recipes featuring my favorite grain.

If you're short on time or just love a simple recipe, here are our 25 best recipes for quinoa that are fast, easy, and delicious.

Best Easy Quinoa Soup Recipes

  • Creamy Coconut & Mushroom Soup. Coconut milk adds just the right amount of body and creaminess to this dairy-free soup. This bowl is so full of umami flavors it's hard to believe how fast and easy it is to make!
  • Slow Cooker Coconut Quinoa Curry. This one might take a little longer than the super-fast recipes on the list. But thanks to a slow cooker, it couldn't be easier to make this hands-off quinoa curry soup.
  • Spring Vegetable Quinoa Minestrone. Crisp springtime vegetables add freshness, color, and nutrition to this light and healthy vegetable quinoa soup recipe.
  • 30-Minute Roasted Garlic Cauliflower Chowder. That's right: just half an hour to make an insanely creamy and flavor-packed roasted garlic cauliflower chowder perfect for a chilly night.
