Can't get enough of quinoa? Me neither! 

Here is another quinoa dish you can whip up in under 20 minutes. 
It only requires one pot (plus) and is super, super healthy (plus, plus!) 

Plus, plus, plus... it is vegan friendly and gluten-free. So go ahead, invite everyone over; your vegan, vegetarian, and gluten sensitive friends. They'll all thank you for this one!
