  1. Mix water, quinoa, 1 tablespoon coconut oil, and chicken bouillon granules in a saucepan; bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until white threads appear on the quinoa grains, about 15 minutes.
  2. Melt 2 tablespoons coconut oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Saute mushrooms, onion, and red bell pepper in hot oil until softened, 5 to 7 minutes; season with salt.
  3. Stir red wine and soy sauce into the vegetable mixture; bring to a simmer, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook until the liquid is reduced, about 10 minutes.
  4. Mix quinoa and vegetables in a large serving bowl; top with Parmesan cheese.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Omit chicken bouillon and replace with salt to make it a vegetarian dish.

Awesome and easy! I didn't use oil when cooking quinoa and skipped the optional parmesan, it's tasty enough without it. Didn't add any salt per another reviewer, it's easy to add later if wanted...

Delish!! I forgot to put in the salt to taste and realized that it didn't need it. I will definitely make this one again! Yummm!

Delicious, but do NOT salt to taste! Already has plenty with soy and bouillon!

A quick, easy, tasty, and healthy meal. Plan to serve 'Chef John's Meatless Meatballs' with the leftover quinoa tomorrow. Subbed chicken broth for the water/chicken bouillon, and did not add opt...

a bit too salty for our taste.. but good!

This is an easy, tasty recipe! The only important note that I feel is missing from the directions is to RINSE THE QUINOA REALLY WELL BEFORE USING! If you don't, there will be an underlying bitte...

I left out the first Tb of coconut oil and used broth instead of bullion. It was excellent!

Very fragrant, beautiful dish. I used Tri color quinoa, broth instead of boullion cubes, and yellow pepper instead of red.
