    1. 1
      Mix quinoa, water and salt in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the quinoa is tender, about 20 minutes.
    2. 2
      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.
    3. 3
      Add the mushrooms, sweet potatoes, and cayenne pepper; season to taste with salt and pepper.
    4. 4
      Cover the skillet, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook until the sweet potato is soft, about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add water into the skillet as needed to keep the vegetables from drying out and sticking.
    5. 5
      Divide the quinoa among 4 plates and ladle the vegetables over the quinoa. Sprinkle with almond slivers.

      Another great recipe Mikekey ! I made as written, except skipped the mushroom as I cannot tolerate them. To be honest I really had my doubts that this would be anything but "just okay" just because quinoa is so bland to begin with - but I was really surprised. This combination of sweet potato adds sweetness and the cayenne definitely adds a bite ! The onions and garlic give the dish a light savory flavor but I think my favorite part is the toasted almond slivers. They really add a nice texture of crunch. I was very impressed by this recipe Mikekey and so glad I tried it. I will definitely make it again - always looking for good quinoa recipes and this one is great. DH is the mushroom lover in the family, and he even said it was perfect 'as-is' ! Made for your Week #3 Football Pool win !!
