Veggies and Quinoa

I was checking out The "Happy Go Lucky Vegan" blog and came across this recipe.  I used quinoa instead of couscous.  Love it!!  The first picture is the veggies, the second picture is with the quinoa. I love the raisens and the pinenuts!!

1/2 cup quinoa
olive oil
2-3 carrots, sliced thin
1 small head of broccoli, cut into small florets
1 cup of frozen peas
½ cup golden raisins
2 Tbs pine nuts
salt and pepper
¼ teaspoon dried thyme

Prepare quinoa according to package instructions. While it is cooking, heat a large skillet to medium high. Add olive oil, and carrots and a pinch of salt. Allow carrots to become tender, and add broccoli and another pinch of salt. Allow broccoli to become tender, and add peas and ½ cup water. Allow vegetables to cook in water for a few minutes, or until water dissolves. Add raisins and pine nuts to vegetable mixture. Use salt and pepper to taste, and add thyme.
