Ingredients

  • 1 cup dry red quinoa
  • 2 teaspoons walnut, avocado, or olive oil, divided
  • 2 cups diced sweet potato
  • 1 (14-ounce) can chickpeas, drained, rinsed, and patted dry
  • 2 cups arugula
  • 2 cups halved cherry tomatoes
  • 2 avocados, halved, pitted, and peeled
  • 1 cup cashew sauce
  • 4 tablespoons pepitas (shelled pumpkin seeds)

Instructions

  1. Prepare the quinoa as directed; keep covered and set aside.
  2. Heat one teaspoon of the walnut oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is shimmering, add the sweet potatoes and toss well to coat. Cover the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes, until the sweet potatoes are bright orange all the way through.
  3. Add another teaspoon of oil to the pan along with the chickpeas. Saute for 3-4 minutes, until the chickpeas are toasted and the sweet potatoes are fork-tender. Turn off the heat and set aside.
  4. Divide the quinoa into four bowls. Place a quarter of the sweet potato and chickpea mixture into each of the bowls, then top with arugula and tomato.
  5. Place a pitted avocado half on top of each bowl and fill with cashew sauce. Garnish with pepitas and serve warm.

  1. I added some kalamata olives to this and drizzled a small amount of balsamic vinegar over it. It turned out fabulous.
