We made this recipe at home three times last week, no kidding! The best thing is it is meal prep friendly. Make everything easier on yourself by cooking a double batch of his recipe and storing it in our favorite Glass Containers for up to one 1 week in the fridge. Just reheat quinoa and tempeh and serve!
Use whatever protein you enjoy to fit your unique eating habits. Our favorite vegan-friendly option for this recipe is tempeh or the easiest Crispy Tofu, but it works great with chicken or fish too!

We’ve accidentally scorched our fair share of quinoa in our day using the usual “steaming method”. Learn from our mistakes, the next time you make quinoa at home, try this handy method.
- Rinse your quinoa! Quinoa shells have a thin coating of saponin that can make it taste bitter. Rinse under cold water until water runs clear.
- In a medium saucepan, heat water until boiling, add a pinch of salt for taste.
- Add rinsed quinoa, and cook, similar to that of cooking pasta, until tender. Stirring occasionally so the quinoa doesn’t clump together.
- Strain quinoa through a fine-mesh strainer and return to pan and let rest for about 3 minutes. fluff with a fork and serve.
