Recipe Ingredients for Roasted Sweet Potato, Mango, and Edamame Salad with Quinoa

1/2 c uncooked quinoa, rinsed
3 small sweet potatos
1 mango
1/2 c edamame
2 T olive oil
1 T olive oil
1 Salt
1 Pepper
2 T lemon juice
2 T honey
1 T rice vinegar
2 T cilantro

Recipe Directions for Roasted Sweet Potato, Mango, and Edamame Salad with Quinoa

  1. Preheat the oven at 425. Rinse & scrub the sweet potatoes well and pat dry. Cut into 1 cubes and place in a bowl. Add the 2 T olive oil and a generous dash of salt & freshly ground pepper and toss until well-coated. Spread the sweet potatoes onto a foil-lined cookie sheet and roast for about 15 minutes or until tender.

  2. Bring quinoa and 1c water to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 10-15 minutes until water is absorbed.

  3. While the sweet potatoes are roasting, prepare the dressing by combining the remaining tablespoon of olive oil, lemon juice, honey, rice vinegar, and cilantro, and whisk together well. Set aside. Peel & cut the mango into 1 cubes, and if youre using frozen, whole edamame, thaw & shell it so you have the individual beans at your disposal.

  4. When the potatoes are done roasting, allow them to cool for a few minutes. Combine the potatoes, mango, and edamame in a large bowl. Drizzle the dressing on top & toss lightly. Serve on a bed of greens or on its own, and enjoy!
