  1. In a medium saucepan, combine quinoa and vegetable broth, bring to a boil.
  2. Once boiling, lower to a simmer and cover, stirring occasionally.
  3. Continue simmering for 15 - 20 minutes, stirring every few minutes to prevent burning.
  4. While the quinoa is cooking (don't forget to stir it occasionally) you can chop all of your vegetables and put them all in the same big bowl.
  5. Heat sesame oil and add chopped vegetables on a medium to high heat, stirring constantly for about 10 minutes or until veggies soften.
  6. Once the quinoa is cooked and vegetables are fried, mix quinoa into the vegetable mixture.
  7. Continue heating on low, stirring occasionally for 2 - 3 minutes.
  8. In a small bowl, whisk tahini, hot sauce and coconut aminos. Pour over fried rice mixture and combine thoroughly.
  9. Serve warm. The leftovers reheat really good too.
