I absolutely love quinoa! And apparently so do most of you guys! My one pot Mexican quinoa is one of the most popular recipes on the blog. So I thought it would be great to make a new one pot quinoa recipe with different spices and veggies.

And that’s how I ended up with my Thai quinoa. It’s soooo good! And super easy to make! 

What You Need: 

  • quinoa
  • vegetable broth
  • coconut milk 
  • canned diced tomatoes 
  • frozen green beans 
  • broccoli 
  • red bell pepper 
  • red curry paste 
  • curry powder
  • green onions 
  • salt, and pepper 

As always, you can find the full ingredient list and the recipe instructions in a separate, printable recipe box at the end of this post.

How to Make the One Pot Thai Quinoa: 

STEP 1: Place the quinoa, the vegetable broth, the coconut milk, the diced tomatoes, the red curry paste, and the curry powder in a large pot and stir well. Cook on medium heat (without a lid). 

STEP 2: After 6 minutes, add the bell pepper, the beans, and the green onions. 

STEP 3: After 5 more minutes, add the broccoli. Stir well. 

STEP 4: Cook 8-10 more minutes (on medium heat, no lid) or until the quinoa is ready. Season with salt and pepper.

Recipe Notes: 

  • Not all red curry pastes are vegan, so make sure to check the label. 
  • As the spiciness often depends on the brand, I recommend checking your curry paste first before you add it to the quinoa. Adjust the amount to your personal liking.
  • Don’t worry about not having enough liquid in this recipe. The canned tomatoes, the coconut milk, and the vegetable broth will provide enough liquid to cook the quinoa. You don’t have to cook it separately.
