    Turned our good nice light side but packed full of flavor I used 4 sweet potatoes probably only need 1 cup quinoa used a full package of feta and fresh squeezed lemon juice. Mixed it up with the potatoes quinoa and basil let it sit to get the flavors added feta and lemon before serving

    Tastes as good as I imagined. I wish I had cooked the quinoa in chicken broth to add flavor. I added about 6 little mission figs minced up...I know, I hate when people go off script, but that's the only change I made, and it was just the little sweet surprise that made it right for me. That with the feta and basil gave a real mediterranean profile. I let all the ingredients cool off before I combined them, so as not to smooge up the feta. Thank you!

    So easy to make and an explosion of different wonderful flavors in your mouth. I did squeeze a little lemon juice onto it before I served it.

    Needed a dressing of some sort so we whipped one up it helped the quinoa bind so you're not chasing it around the plate and added a lot more flavor

    It was so good! First i thought that just a little pinch of salt only when roasting sweet potatoes will make this dish bland. But actually it was full of flavor so yum and tasty and also healthy! Definitely making this again
