Quinoa Primavera

Here's a quinoa recipe I adapted to be fatfree.  Always remember to wash and drain quinoa well before you cook it, or it will be bitter.  The more rinsing the better, in my experience.

--------  ------------  --------------------------------
  2 1/2           cups  water
  1                cup  quinoa -- rinsed well
  2               cups  frozen green peas -- thawed in hot water and drained
  3        tablespoons  water -- (or vegetable broth)
  2             medium  carrots -- thinly sliced on the diagonal
  2             medium  zucchini -- thinly sliced on the diagonal
  2              small  red bell peppers -- chopped
  2              large  leeks -- thinly sliced
  1           teaspoon  crushed garlic
  2          teaspoons  dill
                        salt and pepper

Place the water in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil.  Stir in the quinoa.  Cover, reduce the heat to low, and simmer 15 to 18 minutes.  Remove from the heat and scatter the peas on top of the grain; do not stir.  Cover, and let sit for 8 minutes. Place the 3 tablespoons water in a large non-stick skillet or wok, and heat over medium high.  Add carrot, zucchini, red bell pepper, leek, and garlic.  Stir-fry for about 8 minutes, or until carrot is tender-crisp, adding water as necessary. Add the quinoa, peas, and dill, and toss until thoroughly combined.  Heat over medium-high, tossing constantly, until the peas are heated through, about 2 minutes.  Season with salt and pepper.  Serve hot.
