Quinoa is my most favourite grain, when it comes to choose between potatoes, rice, millet or pasta. It’s also very easy to prepare and you do not need many ingredients to cook a delicious meal. I cook quinoa very often, and today, I will show you my favourite Gluten-free Tomato Quinoa Recipe.
Did you know that Quinoa is rich in protein? It’s an excellent choice for people following vegan or vegetarian diet. One cup of cooked quinoa weighing 185 g provides 8.14 g of protein. It’s rich in fiber too, antioxidants, and many other minerals. Plus, it’s gluten-free.
You can prepare in so many ways and it’s very easy to cook. I will show you how to prepare Tomato Quinoa with lentils, spinach and nuts. This recipe is great for lunch or dinner, and it is super easy to take to the office too.
This Tomato Quinoa Recipe recipe is:
- rich in minerals
- rich in protein
- great for dinner or lunch
- easy to pack to the office
- nut-free option – by excluding nuts
How to prepare this meal if taking to the office
If you warm lunch at the office, just separate quinoa and lentils from spinach and nuts. Spinach & nuts are great to eat fresh and crunchy, and by warming them they get soft. I always take 2 separate lunch boxes, one with food to warm, the second with fresh vegetables.

They work perfectly with the Thyme hummus, see the recipe here. Or if you still have some pumpkin at home or in your freezer, try these Pumpkin Cupcakes with Ricotta frosting. These cupcakes are also gluten-free and made with chickpea & buckwheat flour. Or, see all my recipes here.
