This healthy quinoa with vegetables is packed with fiber and nutrients. Warm quinoa with spinach, mushrooms, green onions, red bell pepper, and fresh peach. Low fat, low carb, vegetarian, gluten free recipe.
I love making quick recipes with quinoa and all kinds of veggies and I always like to add just a small amount of fruit. In this recipe I added peach which brought a nice touch of freshness and sweetness to this salad. This recipe is actually a variation of my spinach and mushroom quinoa .
This recipe works well as a side dish or as an easy quinoa salad. It's vegetarian, gluten free, low fat and low in carbohydrates. Finely sliced sweet peach contrasts nicely with savory ingredients (quinoa and vegetables). This light and lean recipe is perfect for the Summer!
Quinoa with veggies
- 1 pound mushrooms (white or cremini, sliced thinly)
- 3 garlic cloves , minced
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 5 green onions , chopped
- 1 red bell pepper , chopped
- 6 ounces spinach fresh
- 2 cups quinoa , cooked
- 1 peach , chopped
- Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and garlic and saute over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes until mushrooms get soft and acquire a nice, golden-brown color. Add chopped green onions, chopped red bell pepper, and mix. Season with salt.
- Add fresh spinach to the skillet, reduce heat to low, cover the skillet with the lid and let mushrooms, red bell pepper, and spinach cook for about 1 minute or less, just until spinach begins to wilt. Add 2 cups of cooked quinoa to the skillet and cook on low heat for another minute until spinach wilts even more and quinoa warms up. Season with salt, if needed. Mix in chopped peach, if desired

Looks good except for the high sodium content. Not sure why it’s extremely high given the ingredients.
Please note that the sodium content is in mg. It's only 2 % of daily value, so it's not high at all. Some vegetables have sodium in them naturally.
This could have been more flavourful. It was too bland for me I am afraid. I added lime juice, cumin powder, chilli flakes and onion tomato paste to make it more interesting.
Oh man, I make a bowl of quinoa and veggies almost every week! A go-to recipe for sure! This looks delicious!
I could eat a whole bowl of this!
