5 Quinoa Recipies for a Lean, High Protein Diet

“Quinoa, a grain that is used in many South American dishes, is high in protein and is gluten-free. Plus, its mild taste and rich texture make it perfect for different kinds of dishes.”


Warm Quinoa Salad with Edamame & Tarragon
Toasting quinoa gives it a slightly nutty taste, which complements the walnut flavor and brings out the lemony tarragon dressing. Try this salad over greens like arugula, Boston lettuce leaves, or wilted spinach.

Quinoa with Latin Flavors
Cilantro, lime, and scallions add a kick to quinoa. This side dish can work well with seafood, poultry, or pork.

Quinoa Salad with Dried Apricots & Baby Spinach
This sweet and spicy salad is great for a make-ahead lunch or a simple weeknight dinner!

Toasted Quinoa Salad with Scallops & Snow Peas
Try this salad the next time you’re craving something crunchy. Substitute shrimp or thin slices of chicken for the scallops to suit your mood.

This salad is jam-packed with heart-healthy ingredients — whole grains (quinoa), legumes (soy-based tofu), and plenty of vegetables.
