Easy Stovetop One Pot Broccoli Quinoa ready in only 25 minutes! The result is perfectly cheesy and tasty quinoa with broccoli. I use frozen broccoli florets to save even more time when making this dish.
Recipe type: Main
Serves: 4 servings
  • 1 white onion, diced
  • 1 shallot, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsps herbs de provence
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1½ cup quinoa, rinsed
  • 1 cup coconut milk or cashew milk (or use additional vegetable broth)
  • 2 - 2½ cups vegetable broth
  • 4 cups broccoli florets (I use organic frozen)
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp bread crumbs
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • pinch hot pepper flakes.
  1. In a large and deep pan, over medium-high heat, saute onion, shallot and garlic with herbs and balsamic vinegar until soft. Add a splash of water when necessary to keep the onions from sticking to the pan.
  2. Add quinoa to the pan and stir it for about a minute with the onion-garlic mixture. This helps to "toast" the quinoa a bit, making it all the more flavorful in the final dish.
  3. Add the milk (if using) and two cups of vegetable broth.
  4. Cover the pan and simmer over medium-low heat for 10 minutes. Add the broccoli to the quinoa and cover the pan again. Cook for an additional 5 - 10 minutes until the quinoa is fluffy (the quinoa will cook in total for 15 to 20 minutes). Add up to half a cup more vegetable broth, if necessary. Stir in the nutritional yeast.
  5. Taste and add salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with breadcrumbs, nutritional yeast , and hot pepper flakes
