Cook the quinoa in the 2 cups of stock or water. Your choice.
Add both to a pan and bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for @ 10 minutes or until all the liquid is absorbed. Fluff with a fork and let cool.
2
Chop all the veggies into bite sized pieces. I left the cilantro leaves in tact and just pulled them from the stems. I guesstimated 4T. It was just a handful.
