“Sweet Potato, onion, mushrooms, and chopped pecans are served over a bed of quinoa. This dish is perfect as a warm meal or side dish during cold weather.” - by lep413
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Stir the quinoa in a saucepan over medium heat until it begins to take on a toasty aroma, about 5 minutes. Pour in the water, and add pinch of salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the quinoa is tender, about 20 minutes.
- Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the garlic and onion, and cook until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms, sweet potatoes, and cayenne pepper; season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover the skillet, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook until the sweet potato is soft, about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour a splash of water into the skillet if needed to keep the vegetables from burning. Spoon the vegetable mixture over a bed of quinoa, and sprinkle with chopped pecans to serve.

I loved this so much, I’m thinking of adding this to our Thanksgiving menu. Thank you lep413 for a delicious recipe."
"Overall a good and healthy recipe. I just thought it need a bit more flavor so I sprinkled in a little Goya Adobo seasonings. It was good but; still needed a little something. Next time I think I will..." See more use chicken or veggie broth to cook the quinoa. I diced the sweet potato very small and added frozen peas for extra color and texture. Will definitely make this again."
"This is an excellent vegetarian/vegan dish! Very flavorful. I used 1 1/2 cups of portabella mushrooms, added 1/4 water to the vegetable pan before covering, and increased the cayenne pepper just a bit..." See more, which gave this a nice kick. Some fresh spinach added into the vegatable pan in the last 5 minutes would also be great! I'll be making this again for sure. "
