Quinoa Broccoli Curry

This recipe is a very poor adaptation of Cauliflower-Quinoa curry from Vegetarian Times magazine. I didn’t have cauliflower on hand and didn’t want to use peas since the dish was too green already. I also didn’t have too much time to make it, so this is my super quickie version. Quinoa helps thicken the curry and also substitutes rice in this dish.
