As with many of our recipes, you start by cooking the base ingredient, in this case quinoa, and setting it aside. Next, cook the onion until lightly browned, and set that aside as well.

Then, combine this with the rest of the ingredients and stir-fry for a few more minutes until everything is mixed well. A few steps, and dinner’s done!
