Quinoa with Garlic and Mushrooms

1 cup quinoa, rinsed
2 cups water
3 gloves garlic, sliced
2 tb. olive oil
8 mushrooms, thinly sliced
dash vegetable broth
salt and pepper

In a medium pot, boil the water and add the quinoa. Return to a boil and then reduce to a simmer and cook about 15 minutes or until the quinoa softens.

Meanwhile, in a frying pan over medium heat, sauté the garlic and mushrooms in the olive oil. Add a bit of the broth or water to keep the vegetables from sticking. When the quinoa is cooked and the mushrooms have released their juices, add the quinoa to the frying pan. Cook over medium heat, stirring well to combine and to prevent burning. Salt and pepper to taste.
