I had a bowl of leftover quinoa in the fridge and it took less than 15 minutes to throw together a delicious lunch. Plant-based style, of course. :-)
Please excuse the awful photography (I had the nerve to tag it with Brown Vegan-ha!). I was originally going to share this picture on Twitter but figure the whole recipe would be best here.
Update me if you try this dish. :-)
