Looking for the perfect easy fall recipe? I’ve got you covered! This Sweet Potato Quinoa bowl is extremely versatile and lends itself perfectly to swapping out ingredients based on what you have on hand. Don’t have sweet potato? Throw in butternut squash. Hate raisins? Add in some dried cranberries instead. Sunflower seeds are usually the cheapest, but pumpkin seeds are equally as great. What really ties this whole recipe together is the easy-to-use Knorr® Selects Vegetable Granulated Bouillon which provides the amazing, rich flavor for the quinoa. As long as you’ve got that, you’re guaranteed to have an affordable and delicious meal for a family of four for only $2.50 per serving!
