Rated as 4.75 out of 5 Stars

"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."

  1. 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.
  2. 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.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Substitute baby spinach for the baby kale if desired.

Delicious! Even my kids liked it.

Tasty! This dish made a satisfying meal. Made as written. Thanks for the recipe.

Very good, made as directed. Added a smidge more ginger. Will definitely make again. Easy and delicious!

This was surprisingly good. I LOVE one pan meals.i debated at first on making this as I thought the ingredients were odd...carrots and the mushrooms to me doesn't work. In the end it tasted good...
