Published July 23, 2023, 6:40 p.m. by Monica Louis

The sights, sounds, and aromas from the kitchen are a source of comfort and good memories for many of us.

➡️ So, I invite you into our kitchen so I can share a simple quinoa recipe that can hopefully be a source of not only good food but also comfort for you too!

Join me as I show you how to create a healthy vegan fried rice dish.

The two main ingredients, basmati rice, and quinoa will fill your kitchen with a nutty and floral fragrance.

➡️ The rapid simmer of little bubbles and the clink of the cover on the top of the pot means that dinner is on its way.

The mix of sauteed carrots, chickpeas, onion, spices and a squeeze of lemon juice will stew and blend their flavors, all that’s left is to decorate with parsley and enjoy!

💬 What variety of rice would you consider substituting for basmati? Let me know in the comments below!

▶️ recipe INGREDIENTS: (3 servings approx.)

1/2 cup / 95g - quinoa (soaked for 30 minutes)

1/2 cup / 100g - white BASMATI Rice (soaked for 30 minutes)

2 cups/1 can(540ml) - Cooked chickpeas

3 tablespoons - Olive Oil

1cup / 130g - Onion (finely chopped)

1 cup / 150g - Carrot - (cut into small cubes)

1 +1/2 cup / 360ml - Vegetable Broth (low sodium)

Salt to taste (I have added total 1 teaspoon of Pink Himalayan salt)

1/4 teaspoon - Cayenne pepper (Optional)

1 tablespoon - Lemon Juice or to taste

1/3 cup/ 20g - Parsley - finely chopped


Wash the quinoa and basmati rice thoroughly until the water runs clear and then let is soak in water for 30 minutes.

To a heated pan added olive oil, onion, carrot, 1/4 teaspoon salt and fry on medium heat until the onion and carrot starts to caramelized. Adding salt to onion/carrot will release it's moisture and help it cook faster so please don’t skip it.

Add the soaked/drained quinoa, rice and cooked chickpeas, along with vegetable broth, salt and cayenne pepper (please note cayenne pepper is optional). Bring to a rapid simmer. Then reduce the heat to lowest point in your stove and cover and cook for about 20 minutes or until the quinoa rice is cooked. Once cooked turn off the heat and uncover. Add the lemon juice, parsley and mix very gently, the rice is very delicate at this point and we don't want to break it. Check for seasoning and add salt if needed.

Cover and let it sit for 5 minutes before serving (for flavors to blend). Serve with your favourite curry.


- Thoroughly wash the quinoa/rice, this will get rid of any impurities/gunk/bitterness and will give a much better and clean taste

- Adding salt to onion/carrot will release it's moisture and will help it cook faster so please don’t skip this step

- After adding the garnish, mix everything very gently then cover the pot and let it sit for 5 minutes before serving - for the flavors to blend

- This recipe uses white basmati rice
