Protein-Packed Spicy Vegan Quinoa with Edamame

HeidiM

"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®.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

Flavor was just ok and the edamame didn't flow well with the texture of the dish.

This was surprisingly tasty. I completely understand the prior reviewer's comment that they went back for seconds--not because they were hungry--but because it was so flavorful (we did the same)...

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.

I'd never used quinoa in a stir-fry and geatly appreciate this versatile recipe. Previously cooked quinoa reduced the cooking time of this great recipe. I modified it to use on-hand ingredients...

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...

So yummy! Didn't add any edamame. I wish I could have gotten the water to boil down a bit more in the quinoa

Delicious! I put the quinoa, water and bouillon in my rice cooker and added the edamame to the onion pepper mixture with the garlic and ginger. I left out the chile paste and it was still a litt...

Perfect as is!!!
