Basil quinoa and red plums - vegan lunch

Our simple all vegan lunch yesterday: basil quinoa and season's fresh red plums.
I just washed the quinoa and then cooked it in vegetable stock and made sure all the liquid was absorbed. In the meantime I made a dressing from olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, thyme, rosemary and two handfuls of fresh basil. Make sure to use lots more basil than thyme and rosemary. You want the basil flavour. I sometimes add cherry tomatoes but yesterday I didn't. 
I washed and cut the plums, added some maple syrup for sweetness and a splash of lemon juice. Nutritious vegan lunch that takes less than 20 minutes to make!
