Directions:

1. Make sure you have cooked quinoa on hand that has already cooled (leftover quinoa works great). Here’s a how-to on cooking quinoa.
2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil on a large skillet over medium heat.
3. Add onions. Sauté until onions are translucent.
4. Add in garlic. Sauté for a few minutes.
5. Fold in cooked quinoa and chopped vegetables. Pour in soy sauce and sesame oil and stir to combine.
