15 Healthy Vegan Quinoa Recipes

Quinoa is a staple in my kitchen as its so versatile and can be used in so many sweet and savoury recipes. This recipe list includes everything from cookies and cakes, to muffins and pizza. These vegan quinoa recipes are all high protein and gluten free.

Quinoa Health Benefits

  • Very nutritious and high in iron, manganese, magnesium and phosphorus.
  • High in the plant antioxidants called flavonoids that have been shown to have anti-inflammatory and antidepressant effects*.
  • Naturally gluten free and nutritious, unlike many gluten-free alternatives.
