  Sugar snap peas 1 Pound
  Grape seed oil 1 Tablespoon
  Quinoa 1 Cup (16 tbs), dried
  Grated ginger 1 Teaspoon
  Chicken broth 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Soy sauce 1 1⁄2 Tablespoon

  Water 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Black pepper 3⁄4 Teaspoon
  Salt To Taste
For the garnish

Directions

MAKING
1. Take a medium sized saucepan, add the quinoa and the chicken broth. Turn on the heat to a medium high and let it come to a boil. When it starts to boil, cover it, turn the heat down to low and let it cook for about 15 minutes and then the quinoa is done. Turn off the heat.
2. Heat up a wok or a large pan on high heat, and when the wok is really hot, add in the grape-seed oil and the sugar snaps and saute for about 2 to 3 minutes. Then add the minced clove of garlic, soy sauce, black pepper and a teaspoon of freshly grated ginger. Mix it all around for about 1 to 2 minutes.

SERVING
3. Plate up the quinoa and serve the sugar snaps over the quinoa, topped with toasted sesame seeds.
