Quick Quinoa Salad

I had some left over quinoa in the refrigerator so I decided to whip up a quick salad type of dish for lunch one day.  It was delicious and I will be making this again!

1 1/2 cups cooked quinoa
1 onion minced
2 celery spears chopped
1/2 red bell pepper chopped
1/2 green bell pepper chopped
1 cup corn
2 cups cooked garbanzos
1/2 cup veggie broth
2-3 Tbsp your favorite Italian dressing

Cook the onion, celery and bell peppers in the vegetable broth, covered on med/high heat,  for about 5 minutes, until onion is translucent.  Add corn, garbanzos and quinoa, stir and cook for just a couple of minutes, covered, until everything is hot.  Take off the heat, and add Italian dressing.  Mix well and serve warm (also great cold).
