Start with cooking your quinoa, following the instructions on the bag.
Prep your carrots, broccoli and garlic while the quinoa is cooking. Cut the carrots into thin medallions so that they cook quickly and evenly, about 1 cm each. Next, chop your broccoli into bite size florets. Last, finely chop your garlic.
When your ingredients are prepped and your quinoa is almost done (5 minutes left), add your olive oil over medium-high heat to a large wok (or pan). Add the carrots first and cook for 2-3 minutes. Then add your broccoli and garlic and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
Strain your quinoa and add it to the wok along with the red pepper flake, soy sauce, and rice wine vinegar. Sauté everything for another couple of minutes.
Lastly, add your sesame oil to create that rich, nutty flavor and cook for another minute.
Note: green onion and/or basil also go great in this dish!
