- 1 red bell pepper, sliced
- 1 cup snap peas
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Fresh parsley or cilantro, chopped (for garnish)

- Rinse the quinoa under cold water until the water runs clear. In a medium saucepan, combine quinoa and vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes or until all liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat and let it stand for 5 minutes, then fluff with a fork.
- While the quinoa is cooking, heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and garlic, sautéing until translucent.
- Increase the heat to medium-high and add the sliced mushrooms to the skillet. Cook until the mushrooms are golden brown and their liquid has evaporated.
- Add the red bell pepper and snap peas to the skillet, cooking until just tender but still crisp.
- Stir in the cooked quinoa, soy sauce, and sesame oil, and mix until everything is well combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
