garlicky, salty, sweet quinoa

Why is this quinoa so good?
was the question JR posed to me as we were eating dinner. Um, did you see the title? You can't really go wrong with garlicky, salty, sweet from my perspective. I think this might be the best quinoa ever. Here's how it goes:

Garlicky, Salty, Sweet Quinoa
Serves 2

2 cups quinoa, cooked
olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 inch piece of ginger root, peeled and minced
3 Tbsp. tamari
3 Tbsp. maple syrup
1 tsp. toasted sesame oil
2 scallions, thinly sliced

Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add garlic and ginger. Cook, stirring occasionally until the garlic begins to brown. Add quinoa, tamari, maple syrup, and sesame oil. Stir thoroughly to mix. Cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle with scallions and enjoy!
