  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 cup onions chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic minced

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a medium saucepan with a lid, bring the quinoa, vegetable broth and water to a slow simmer. Cover and let cook for 15 minutes or until liquid has been absorbed.
  • In a medium skillet, sauté onions and garlic in the olive oil until onions are soft. Add in the broccoli and tomatoes. Stir frequently and heat through.
  • Add in the flour to coat the broccoli and tomatoes, then mix in the soy milk. Stir constantly to keep flour from sticking until sauce has thickened.
