Quinoa is a high protein food that is naturally gluten free. It is one of the few plant foods that contains all 9 essential amino acids, which means you’re getting complete protein when you consume it!

You’ll love these quinoa recipes, and we’ve divided them into several different categories so you can easily find what you’re looking for.

Besides being a great source of protein, quinoa is also high in magnesium, b vitamins, and iron. If you’re eating gluten free, these can be nutrients that you’re missing!
