Quinoa, Sweet Potato and Peppers

50 mins (prep 20, cooking 30)
10 ingredients
2 servings
This is a riff on a recipe I found in Harley Pasternak's 5 Factor World Diet. Combining sweet potatoes and Quinoa sounded like a great idea to me.Instead of water for the quinoa, use a low salt vegetable stock (I used the water which remained after cooking an artichoke, but it could be anything, although I don't recommend commercial due to the salt thing). The guaram masala has a nice "sweet" taste which works well with the sweet potatoes. You can add in a little more if you like it. If you can't find it, your favorite curry powder will work.Try to get a bell pepper that is a different color than the jalopeno. Adds a visual dimension. Or, perhaps, helps those who don't want any heat to remove the jalopenos. Serves two as a main course. As a side, of course, it will go further.
