About this recipe: Sweet Potato, onion, mushrooms and nuts are served over a bed of toasted quinoa. This vegan recipe is perfect as a warm main or side dish on a chilly evening.
A quick and filling meal, I found it took much less than 55 mins - I also added butter beans for extra protein which gave it a nice creamy texture, and some soy sauce. Would make again! - 18 Feb 2012
The dish really only serves 2. I found it a bit salty so would definitely hold back on the salt if I cooked it again. - 07 Dec 2016
I love finding new recipes using quinoa. This one was a little spicy for me. Next time I'll make the following modifications: 1, replace ¼ t cayenne with ¼ t cinnamon (cinnamon is the perfect companion for sweet potatoes and pecans); 2, begin preparing and cooking the vegetables first (before cooking the quinoa); 3, add an extra tablespoon of olive oil prior to adding the mushrooms, sweet potatoes and spices; 4, five minutes into cooking the vegetables add ¼ cup of water to the vegetables. I loved this so much, I’m thinking of adding this to our Thanksgiving menu. Thank you lep413 for a delicious recipe. - 08 Jun 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
