Quinoa with vegetables

I love quinoa, it's a very nutritious grain and, as a total bonus, takes 15 minutes to cook!

1 cup quinoa, rinsed
2 cups water
1 zucchini, thinly sliced
1 carrot, thinly sliced
1 cup edamame, shelled
1/4 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons soy sauce (wheat free if you need that)
2 tablespoons Srirachi
1/2 lemon, juiced

Bring two cups of water to boil and add the quinoa, stir it once and then put the lid on and leave it alone.  After about 7 minutes, add the edamame and carrots, put the lid back.  When the quinoa is done cooking remove from the heat, add in the zucchini and leave with the lid on.  The residual heat will slightly steam the zucchini, I prefer it crunchy.

Combine the oil, soy sauce, srirachi and lemon juice, whisk well to combine.  Pour over the cooked quinoa and stir well to combine.
