This can take anywhere form 4-10 minutes. It should be thick and syrupy when it’s done.
  4. Stir-Fry the mushrooms and peas. While everything is cooking, heat 1/2 tsp of olive oil in a non-stick pan then add the sliced mushrooms and peas. Cook over high-heat, stirring often, until the mushrooms are browning and the peas are slightly tender but still crunchy, about 10 minutes.
  5. Assemble the bowls. To assemble the bowls, divide the quinoa, stir-fried peas and mushrooms, avocado, green onion, broccoli, carrot and tofu amongst 4 bowls or containers. Drizzle each bowl with an equal amount of the teriyaki sauce. Top with sesame seeds and serve.
