Add a Tbsp of olive oil and minced garlic into a pan on medium heat. Add in onions, peas and carrots.Turn the heat to medium high and saute for a few minutes.

Add in the chopped kale and saute for 2 minutes. Toss in the quinoa and combine the mixture. Add salt and pepper; toss them all together gently. Turn off the heat.
