In a large, heavy nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Stir in onions and sauté about 5 minutes or until onions reach a caramel color. Add bell pepper and apple, sauté about 3 to 4 minutes or until they are crisp-tender.

Remove the skillet from the heat, stir in cooked quinoa, pecans and apricots. Cover and let stand 5 minutes to absorb flavors.
