Autumn Quinoa with Yams and Mushrooms
I am absolutely loving yams right now! They are chock full of good vitamins, warm and sweet, and just scream fall. I found this recipe on All Recipes, link below the picture. It's a wonderful vegetarian dish that is rich in protein and other good for you vitamins. Be sure to rinse the quinoa well before you cook it to ensure you remove all of the bitterness that is a natural part of the grain. You could substitute any kind of mushroom that you like. Sweet potatoes would give a similar flavor if you can't find yams. I suggest using yams though. They give a wonderful color to the dish and are rich in beta carotene (vitamin A).
