Quinoa | Salad with Sweet Potatoes

Friendly inspiration. This gorgeous veggie recipe is inspired by the recipe of a dear friend. The combination of fresh carrots and sweet potatoes is so surprising! Quinoa, ‘the golden grain of the Andes’, is rich in fibers and a great source of protein. It has a firm structure and a rich, earthy taste. It combines very well with brown rice. I used a mix of red, white and black biological quinoa.

Ingredients (serves 3-4 adults)

  • 6 sweet potatoes, sliced and parted in 4
  • 300 grams of carrots, peeled and parted in 4
  • 2 cups of quinoa
  • 2 cups of brown rice
  • salt for seasoning
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • dried rosemarine

Serve with a green spring salad.
