Quinoa Pilaf

This is a great side dish recipe from a sister-in-law, that I think is even better as leftovers. It is also easy to take in a lunch the next day.
Saute for 5 minutes:
1 TBS olive oil
1 medium onion
1 red pepper, diced
3 cloves garlic minced
1 tsp basil
1 cup rinsed uncooked quinoa
2 cups chicken or vegetable broth

-Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 14-16 minutes until broth evaporates and quinoa tender. Add 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained and salt to taste. I'd serve this with steamed vegetables, salad, and some bread/muffins. Serves 6.
