Chickpea and quinoa salad

My daughter Madi has become a vegetarian so I have been trying out alot of new things for her lately and this was a home run.

1 small onion or shallot minced
5 mushrooms diced
1/2 orange or red pepper chopped
1 tomato chopped
1 can of chickpeas drained
1/4 cup of quinoa
2/3 cup of stock
1 tbsp olive oil


In a skillet add oil,onions and mushrooms cook about 5 minutes
add peppers,tomatoes and chick peas cook 5 minutes
add stock and bring to a boil add quinoa lower heat to low/med and cover for 8 minutes
At the end of 5 minutes give a good stir, turn heat off and leave covered for 15 minutes.

She has been eating it hot and cold
When she took it for lunch today she added chopped up tomato,cucumber and feta cheese and added a splash of her favorite roasted red pepper salad dressing.
