Kumquat and Sweet Potato Quinoa
adapted from sheknows
1 C quinoa
1 1/2 C water
1 sweet potato, cooked and diced
1 T olive oil
1 T honey
1/4 tsp salt
Soak quinoa in hot water for 5 minutes, then drain and rinse. Place quinoa and water in a bot and bring to boil. Lower the heat to a simmer and cover. Cook for about 20 minutes or until the quinoa has absorbed the water and is tender.
Meanwhile, slice the kumquats into little discs and remove any seeds.
Once the quinoa is cooked, pour into a serving dish with the sweet potatos, kumquats, olive oil, honey and salt.
Gently stir everything together. Serve warm.
I really liked the bit of salt with the candy like kumquats! This recipe is crazy healthy! It has protein and fiber, lots of vitamins and it's low in fat. I bet it would also be good served cold as a salad. Need a few other quinoa ideas? Try one of these:
