POP Nutrition | Creamy Quinoa Risotto (Gluten Free)

Quinoa was not my go to grain until yesterday. I had it in the past and never enjoyed unless it was in my Whole Food sushi. But the other day I decided to try it and got Gluten Free version at TJ’s. They had a recipe on the back which I modified and I am never looking back. It came out creamy, tangy, aromatic and delicious and was so much more then I could dream of.


  • 1 cup quinoa (GF)
  • 5 cups low-sodium broth, chicken or vegetable
  • 2 oz. soft goat cheese
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp. vinegar

Cooking Steps:

  1. Place cooking pot on low heat, add coconut oil and onion. Saute on low for 5 min. Fold in vinegar and cheese and let it melt.
  2. Add quinoa and mix well. Add broth and bring to a boil. Simmer on low hear mixing frequently for about 15-20 min until the broth is almost absorbed. Turn off the heat and let is sit for 5-7 min.
  3. Enjoy!
