      Very successful recipe! Roasted the pistachios with the diced sweet potato. Didn't chop the nuts. Served warm with home made chicken & pistachio balls (meatballs). Thanks for posting this!

      I loved the flavors of this dish! Instead of pistachios, I subbed almonds which I had on hand, and roasted them in the oven with the potatoes. The herbs combined with the Quinoa to make for a super tasty dish, much thanks!
