How to make it
- Combine quinoa and broth together in a medium sauce pan. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for 15(ish) minutes until the liquid is absorbed, stirring every 5 minutes or so.
- While the quinoa is cooking, heat a large flying pan over medium high heat and coat the pan with olive oil. Saute the onions, celery, peppers, and salt and pepper together until everything is tender-crisp, about 5-7 minutes. Add the peas and continue cooking another minute longer. Add quinoa to frying pan and mix everything together thoroughly and serve.
