Recipe: Quinoa with Lentils

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

From the Vitality Food Feature ‘QUINOA CUISINE‘.

This is one of those versatile recipes that you can easily personalize to suit your own taste to a ‘tee’, using what you have on hand. I don’t use measures for the vegetables because I like to mix and match whatever is in season, or whatever I have in the crisper. (Serves 4 to 6)


  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 2 cups white (or other colour) lentils, rinsed
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Chopped raw vegetables (carrot, parsnip, turnip or whatever is on hand)
  • Seasonings of choice
  • Water to cover

1) Put lentils into a pot along with onion, garlic, chopped vegetables, seasonings, and barely enough water to cover.

2) Boil until lentils are tender (about a half hour), and only a small amount of liquid remains.

3) Over low heat, simmer off the remaining liquid. Spoon lentils over quinoa and serve.
