Garden Veggie Quinoa

  • Author: Azizah
  • Total Time: 30min


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 1 medium red pepper, diced
  • 1 bag frozen mixed veggies
  • 2 cups quinoa
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • sea salt/black pepper
  • 4 cups hot water
  • 1 tbsp butter


  1. Veggies: Take 1 onion and 1 red pepper, dice both of them, set aside.
  2. Saute: Take a saute pan and add your olive oil, the diced onion and red pepper and saute for 3-5 minutes on medium heat. Next, add your bag of mixed veggies and seasonings and saute for another 3-5 minutes.
  3. Quinoa: Next mix your Quinoa into hot veggies. Add hot water and cook on medium heat for about 15-20 minutes or until liquid has evaporated. Mix in 1 tbsp of butter. Take a fork and fluff quinoa. Serve warm.


The Veggies: This delicious Garden Veggie Quinoa is fast and easy to make. I use frozen veggies in this recipe because they cook perfect with the quinoa. Make sure your frozen veggies are thawed out and drained before sauteing.
