Garlic mussels with veggies and quinoa pilaf

So yesterday I chose to boost my B12 resources again and went to the vishandel (fish and seafood shop) to get a few mussels. They sell them already cooked, ready to use. I fried some garlic with leek, green beans and cauliflower on a bit of rice bran oil (one of my favourite oils) and added the mussels to warm them up and roast them a bit. As a sidedish I had leftover quinoa pilaf made of these ingredients cooked together for about 20 minutes in 1 big pot:

1 cup of quinoa

2 cups of water


sliced leek

grated carrot

sliced curly cabbage

chopped up green beans

Usually I don´t mix the grain with the veggies in one pot to cook, but it actually is a good idea!
