Soak quinoa for 15 minutes. Rinse well in a fine mesh strainer, until water runs clear and is not foamy. Bring 2¼ cups water and salt to a boil, add quinoa and reduce to a simmer. Cover and cook for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and steam with lid on for an additional 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
Combine quinoa with vegetables and sesame seeds.
