Celiac Diet? Try Edamame Quinoa Rice Bowl

A Celiac diet doesn’t have to be bland or boring!

A¬†Celiac diet can feel restrictive at first. The loss of gluten may seem¬†overwhelming, but I promise there are so many yummy, whole foods that are naturally gluten-free to enjoy. For my own Celiac diet, my 3 requirements for a recipe are gluten-free,¬†easy to make, and leftovers. This recipe for Edamame & Quinoa Rice Bowl is fabulous all on it’s own or as a side to a lean protein such as grilled fish or chicken!


Prep Time: 30 minutes |Total Time: 30 minutes|Servings: 2 big or 4 small


  • 2-qt sauce pan; deep and/or wide enough to hold entire mixture of rice.
  • 1-qt sauce pan
  • 1 small mixing bowl
  • Fork
  • Large spoon


  • 1/2 cup gluten-free rice &¬†quinoa blend (I used Wegman’s Mountain Red Blend)
  • 1/2 vidalia onion, diced
  • 1¬†tsp avocado oil
  • 1 cup chicken broth (can be swapped out for water to make vegan)
  • 1/2 cup frozen, non-gmo edamame, shelled
  • 1¬†tsp avocado oil
  • 1 T coconut aminos
  • Sea salt and pepper, to taste


  1. In a 2-qt sauce pan, heat 1 tsp avocado oil over medium heat. Add onion and cook until translucent.
  2. Stir in rice & quinoa blend, and cook for 1 minute.
  3. Pour chicken broth over top, and bring to a boil.
  4. Reduce heat to a simmer and cover. Cook for 25 minutes. Stirring occasionally.
  5. In a separate 1-qt pan, cook edamame according to package instructions.
  6. In a small mixing bowl, combine 1 tsp avocado oil and 1 T coconut aminos.
