Cheesy Quinoa with Vegan Kielbasa

Cheesy Quinoa with Vegan Kielbasa
Adapted from magazine recipe

2            tablespoons olive oil
2            cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1            cup quinoa, rinsed
1            cup vegetable broth
1            cup grape tomatoes, halved
              salt and pepper to taste
3/4         cup shredded vegan cheese
1/4         cup chopped fresh parsley
1            small head broccoli, cut into florets
3            vegan kielbasas, medium slices (Tofurky or Field Roast)

Dice vegan Kielbasa and brown in lightly oiled skillet.  Set aside.

In medium saucepan, add oil, garlic and cook, stirring until softened, about 1 minutes.  Add 1 cup water, the quinoa, vegetable broth, tomatoes, 1/4 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper; bring to a simmer, stirring.

Reduce the heat to medium low, cover and cook until the quinoa is tender and the liquid is mostly absorbed, 12-15 minutes.  Remove from the heat and stir in the vegan cheese and parsley.  Add cooked vegan kielbasas and enjoy!
