Next on our Thanksgiving menu is a contemporary twist on the classic sweet potato. Our Sweet Potato and Quinoa Salad recipe is not just scrumptious but also packed with protein and complex carbs, making it the ideal fuel for your energetic family gatherings.
2 large sweet potatoes
1 cup quinoa
1/4 cup toasted pecans
Your choice of vinaigrette
How to Make It:
Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Dice the sweet potatoes and give them a good toss in olive oil, salt, and pepper. Roast until they’re tender, approximately 20-25 minutes.
While those sweet potatoes are becoming deliciously tender, cook your quinoa as per the instructions on the package.
Mix together your roasted sweet potatoes, cooked quinoa, and toasted pecans. Top it off with a drizzle of your favorite vinaigrette. Happy Thanksgiving 2023.
