Cook the quinoa according to package directions, either conventionally or in the microwave. In a medium nonstick skillet, heat the oil. Add the onion; cook, stirring as needed, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the carrots, garlic and cumin; cook, stirring as needed, until the carrots are wilted, about 2 minutes. Stir in the quinoa, chickpeas, orange juice, raisins, salt and cinnamon; cook, covered, until the juice is absorbed and the flavors are blended, about 10 minutes. Stir in the cilantro.
