Cook the quinoa according to instructions.
Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cut the carrots diagonally into 1/4-inch (0.6-centimeter) slices. Add the carrots, chopped green onions, and minced garlic and cook and stir for 3 minutes.
Chop bok choy to make about 6 cups (1 kilogram). Add the bok choy and cook and stir for 2 minutes.
Stir in the vegetable broth, soy sauce, minced ginger, and optional agave nectar (can use maple syrup, if preferred). Decrease the heat to low, cover, and cook for 5 minutes.
To serve, spoon over the cooked quinoa. Sprinkle with unsalted, roasted sesame seeds.
Tip: Substitute cooked brown rice for the quinoa.
