    yogi's Note:

    This was delicious! Try something new--Quinoa provides all essential amino acids and is high in protein, iron and the B vitamins. Find it in the health/grain section of the supermarket.

      Quinoa is not exactly a popular food in Israel. In fact, I could only find it in one health food store so totally out of my way home from work. But, you know what, this was worth it! This was my first time eating quinoa and I adore it! It's got a nutty taste to it, and it went really well with the veggies and sweet potato. I couldn't get kale (harder to find than quinoa, supposedly) so I subbed beet greens. This really is a versatile recipe, I can't wait to try it with all sorts of sauteed vegetables. I'm actually Somersizing at the moment, and think this would make a great carbos meal if I eliminated the oil, sweet potatoes and corn. I'm going to try mixing the quinoa with some roasted red peppers and onions with lots of garlic. I can hardly wait! Yogi, youze da best!

      I thought this was a decent recipe. I enjoyed it, but my boyfriend thought it was too bland. I used freshly ground black pepper, cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes, basil, thyme and sesame oil for flavor, and agreed it was still lacking a little something. It's a good start, it just needs some tweaking. Thank you for posting, it was my first, though not last, attempt at quinoa.

      This was my first time at making or eating quinoa, but we are trying to eat healthier so I thought I would try it. I was surprised how good this turned out. I baked my sweet potatoes in the microwave, used spinach instead of kale and omitted the celery since we don't care for it. I think the next time I will use more veggies or less quinoa since I really liked the bites where there were a lot of veggies.
