Quinoa Pilaf
In: Healthy Foods, Mains, Recipes, Sides0

So many people have asked me to start posting the recipes to the meals I’ve been showing you. Thanks for the requests…many of them come from or are inspired by other recipes that exist.

All recipes and pics that I’ve posted are gluten free and dairy free.

This one is a take off one of Brendan Brazier’s awesome recipes:

Quinoa Pilaf with a Taste of Sunshine Recipe:



  • Quinoa – 2 cups
  • Water – 4 cups
  • Garlic – 3 cloves
  • Red onion – 1/4 cup diced
  • Mushroom – 6-8 caps
  • Spinach – 1/2 cup
  • Dandelion greens – 1/2 cup
  • Fresh Parsley – 1 tbsp
  • Lime zest or juice – 1 tbsp
  • Lemon zest or juice – 1 tbsp
  • Dulse flakes – 1 tsp



  • Cook the Quinoa in the water for 15 minutes and let sit for 5 minutes
  • On low heat melt the coconut oil and add garlic, red onion, mushrooms, spinach, dandelion greens, fresh parsley (in that order – hardest to softest)
  • Put the Quinoa in a large bowl and add the veggies on top
  • Sprinkle the lemon and lime zests over the veggies
  • Sprinkle the dulse flakes over the entire bowl
  • This serves 2-4 people and is delicious. The Dandelion greens are a great source of iron and adding the lemon and lime (vitamin C) make it easier for the body to absorb the iron.

Enjoy the meal!
