This meal is one of the simple meals that is warm and comforting and definitely feels good for our bodies. Completely oil free, you just put different things together to try, and it ends up tasting great! I don’t put anything on my sweet potatoes.
For the Quinoa: In a medium saucepan, combine water and quinoa and bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer, cover and cook until all water is absorbed (10-15 minutes). When done, the grain appears soft and translucent, and the germ ring will be visible along the outside edge of the grain.
Fluff with a fork and transfer to a large bowl. Add garbanzo beans, onions, cilantro, lemon juice, and pepper, and fluff to combine.
For sweet potatoes: Preheat oven to 400°. Place sliced potatoes on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and bake for about 20 minutes, turn, and bake for another 20 minutes until slightly browned. Serve with a side salad. :)
