"Stir-Fried" Turmeric Quinoa

Author Noelle Parton


  • Organic quinoa, soaked 8+ hours and cooked
  • Coconut or avocado oil
  • Ground turmeric
  • Himalayan sea salt


  1. Heat oil in a skillet on medium-high heat. You want enough oil to be able to coat the quinoa well.
  2. Add your cooked quinoa, shake in enough turmeric to thoroughly coat the entire amount of quinoa (you want more than you think), and a generous sprinkle of salt. Stir well.
  3. Spread the quinoa out evenly in the skillet and let it sit for several minutes. Stir, spread out again, and let sit for several minutes. Letting it sill will allow the quinoa to somewhat caramelize and create a crisp texture.
  4. Continue this for about 10 minutes, or until it is to your desired texture. The longer it cooks, the less soft and buttery of a texture will remain. The less it cooks, the more fluffy it will remain, obviously.
  5. Taste. Finish with a little sprinkle of salt if needed.
