Quinoa with Broccoli and Mushrooms

This is something I put together for lunch today using this is and that from the fridge and pantry.  It's something healthy and light that won't make you feel like you need a nap after eating.  Enjoy!
Makes 1 large portion or 2 small portions
1/2 cup quinoa, rinsed
1 cup water
1/4 onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup mushrooms
1/2 broccoli florets
1/4 cup cooked lentils
small handful sundried tomatoes (not packed in oil)
olive oil
salt and pepper
feta cheese
In a small pot over medium heat, pour about 1 tablespoon olive oil.  Cook onions and mushrooms until they get a little color on them.  Stir in the garlic and season with salt and pepper.  Add the quinoa, water, and tomatoes.  Increase the heat and bring to a boil.  Cover and lower heat to a simmer.  Wait 10 minutes and add in the broccoli and lentils.  Cover and cook for 5 more minutes.  If there is too much moisture cook with pot uncovered.  If you like fresh cracked black pepper like me, add more before serving along with feta.
