This second quinoa recipe has sweet potatoes- any vegetable can be substituted that is in season- like asparagus, etc…

I love, love roasting sweet potatoes with smoked paprika! I added them to some delicious quinoa. It was a delicious, healthy side dish I served with the yummy lamb chops!

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • Juice of ½ a lemon
  • ½ cup cilantro, chopped

Heat a saucepan with olive oil and add the quinoa and salt and sauté for 1 to 2 minutes on medium heat. Add the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes till the quinoa is cooked through. Add the lemon juice and fluff with a fork. Keep aside.

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into inch squares
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Place the sweet potatoes on a lined cookie sheet. Add the olive oil, salt and smoked paprika. Mix well and bake till the sweet potatoes are soft and golden brown. Take out and add to the fluffed quinoa. Add the cilantro and check for seasonings before serving.
