Sweet Potato Quinoa Recipe

I mean come on, don’t these images look incredible?

Hehe.

When I took these photos I couldn’t help myself from smiling ear to ear. Tender sweet potatoes truly make my heart sing.

Sweet Potato Quinoa Recipe

This bowl is a combination of roasted sweet potatoes, fluffy quinoa and the most amazing carrot and roasted red pepper ‘creamy’ dressing that I’ve ever made.

Sometimes the dressing is the icing on the cake when it comes to salads.

This dressing totally rocks my world and I’m making extra to have on hand throughout the week for other recipes, too!

I know you’re eager to get outside and soak up the sunshine now that its May- so whip up this recipe tonight for dinner and enjoy it al fresco. I know you’re going to love every bite. You can also add a scoop of my nut cheese and/or carrot spread to this salad if you have leftovers. I’ve been noshing on this recipe with a side of my grain-free crackers for an extra boost of protein and fiber. I hope you love it as much as I do.

Enjoy!

  1. The sweet potato quinoa bowl looks delicious, Amie. I have a question regarding the dressing. Will raw carrots process into a liquid with the other ingredients? It seems like I would need to roast the carrots before puréeing.

    Thank you!

  2. This looks so yummy! But my dressing is super thick. Any suggestions? I’ve added more oil and some chicken broth to thin it out a bit, but it’s needing a lot. And also, I substituted cauliflower rice for the quinoa. Have you ever tried this?

  3. I think maybe I used too much veg for the dressing. It has a hummus consistency. I roasted an entire pepper with the the other veg and used that. Did you mean just a sliver of pepper? Oh well, it’s yummy anyways! Thanks!
