Pizza Veggie Quinoa

A little of this and that…and dinner was served. I happened to have a jar of leftover pizza sauce on hand, making sauce is easy as well. A quick dinner and very tasty. And toddler approved….

Pizza Veggie Quinoa


  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups water
  • ¼ tsp kosher salt
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, peeled and chopped
  • 14 ounces frozen bell pepper strips, chopped (about 3 cups)
  • 2 small zucchini, chopped
  • 2 tsp garlic, minced (4 cloves)
  • ¾ cup pizza sauce
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese


Rinse the quinoa well, shake the water off. Add it, the water and salt to a medium saucepan, bring to a boil. Turn down to medium-low, cover and let cook for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high, add the onion, peppers, zucchini and garlic, sauté until crisp. Turn down to medium-low, add the pizza sauce and ground pepper, toss gently. Turn off the heat and stir in the quinoa, gently stirring to coat. Add in the Parmesan cheese and serve.

Serves 3 to 4.
