Quinoa and Veggys

The picture again does not do justice, it is very colourful!!!  This is a good dish...not a wow dish but good.

1 tbsp oil
1 small onion, chopped
2 small zucchini, chopped
2 cups cooked shelled edamame
2 cups frozen corn kernels, thawed
2 ripe Roma tomatoes, chopped
Fresh ground black pepper

In a large saucepan, bring the water to a boil over high heat. Add quinoa. Reduce the heat to medium low and cook 15 - 20 minutes.  Remove from heat and set aside.
In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and pepper, cover, and cook until softened, 5 minutes. Add the zucchini and cook, uncovered, until softened, about 7 minutes, stirring occasionally. stir in the edamame, corn, tomatoes, and salt and black pepper to taste. Cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until heated through.
