Turmeric Coconut Quinoa

I love this quinoa! It's one of my favorite dishes I've made lately! Flavor-packed!

It's perfect alone or it could be used as a side dish. I like to pair it with roasted cinnamon chickpeas and any veg of choice. I love when a dish can be made all in one pot/pan and this fits the bill!

Perks of this dish: whole grain serving, complete protein, anti-inflammatory properties from turmeric, warm earthy taste, filling.

Turmeric Coconut Quinoa

  • 2 cups quinoa
  • 1 cup canned coconut milk
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 Tbsp turmeric 
  • 1 Tbsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • cracked black pepper to taste


Rinse quinoa. Bring the coconut milk and water to a boil. Add the quinoa and all other ingredients to a pot. Cook over medium heat, covered, for about 15 minutes or until most of the liquid is absorbed. I like mine a little saucy, so I make sure to remove it from the heat before all the liquid is cooked off. Enjoy!
