Crispy Quinoa Recipe: Sprinkle This Crunchy Baked Quinoa on Anything

A new item at my favorite ramen restaurant caught my eye: sautéed broccolini with crispy white quinoa. It was so good, especially the crispy quinoa. I knew I had to recreate it at home. 

Sprinkle this easy baked crispy quinoa recipe over salads, vegetables, yogurt, smoothies, oatmeal, rice – anything that you want to add a healthy crunch to. It will be your new favorite gluten-free way to add extra vitamins, minerals, protein and fiber to your diet.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 30 to 40 minutes
Total Time: 35 to 45 minutes
Servings: Makes 2 cups


  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted

Here's how to make it:

  1. In a bowl, mix together the cooked quinoa and coconut oil. Pour the mixture onto a baking sheet that's been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray or lined with parchment paper. Spread it out so it's in a single, even layer. 
  2. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 30 to 40 minutes, or until crispy and golden brown, stirring every 10 minutes. Watch it close so it doesn't burn. Store in an airtight container.
