Vegan High Protein Spicy Edamame Quinoa

This Vegan High Protein Spicy Edamame Quinoa recipe is a great vegan bodybuilding meal. It’s very high in protein due to the edamame and quinoa and it’s extremely healthy and easy to make. Feel free to add other vegetables if you are not a big fan of bell peppers. Sometimes I add carrots instead of the second bell pepper to give it some variety.

There are so many ways to make this dish depending on the vegetables you want to use. I would advise leaving the edamame in as the main ingredient due to its high protein content. I usually make this recipe in large batches and keep the extras in the freezer or refrigerator and eat as a snack (You can increase the servings by simply entering in how many you would like to make below). Similar to our couscous recipe, this also makes a great hot or cold side to a meal. I usually have it as a high-protein cold side dish to a sandwich. Lastly, you can modulate the spice up or down depending on your tolerance for heat.
