Cindy is here today to share her Sweet Potato Quinoa Casserole. She knows me too well — this recipe is exactly the kind of meal I want to eat during this time of year! I met Cindy at the Food and Wine Conference this past summer and she is just as cool in person as she is on her blog! 


Sweet Potato and Quinoa Casserole

I’m so excited to be sharing my Sweet Potato Quinoa Casserole today with you at Take a Bite Out of Boca ! Shaina has such great tips and tasty recipes. We belong to some of the same foodie groups online and even met in real life this past summer at the Food and Wine Conference in Florida!

This casserole is packed with nutrient dense sweet potatoes and quinoa with a few toasted pecans thrown in to add a bit of crunch. This casserole is perfect to welcome in fall. So colorful and festive!
