    Prepare Quinoa

    Preheat oven to 400° for the sweet potatoes. Prepare and cook your quinoa as per the box's instructions. If buying bulk, use 1 part quinoa, 2 parts water. Combine quinoa and water in a medium sized pot and bring to a boil. Turn down heat, cover pot, and cook on low for about 15 minutes or until all the water is absorbed. Take off burner and let stand covered for another 5 minutes.
