Moroccan Quinoa Pilaf

On April 20, 2011, in Recipes, by Chris Baccus

This week I decided to cook from some other food bloggers. Last night I went with a quinoa recipe from The Whole Life Nutrition Kitchen blog.

I made a few minor changes due to Whole Foods being out of Kale last Sunday. We had picked up some locally grown Swiss Chard at a market in McKinney, TX called Local Yocal. I also did not have the Herbamare Ingredient but the dish tasted great regardless. I was also low on currants and went with a blend of golden raisins and dried cranberries.

We had stopped by our favorite locally focused grocery store, Urban Acres, and bought some sweet potatoes. What we did not expect was what kind of sweet potato. Apparently the Japanese Sweet Potato is a white, creamy potato that is very sweet. It has a smooth texture and tasted amazing in a vegetarian curry dish I made.

While looking for more recipes to use sweet potatoes in, my wife follows a good vegetarian blog. Emily Levenson’s blog has a post with the most amazing scones that just happen to be vegan. We wanted to try another recipe, this time a vegan soup.
