Not only does quinoa have a deliciously nutty flavor, it’s also an ancient grain prized for its nutritional benefits. We love playing around with the versatile ingredient, which works with myriad flavors, like the miso and ginger it’s cooked with in this Asian-inspired dish. The quinoa is layered with sesame-dusted roasted sweet potatoes and a salad of edamame and crunchy cucumber. Fried eggs and Sriracha aioli on top round out this dreamy veggie-forward dinner.

Cooking Steps

  1. Make Ginger Miso Quinoa

    Make Ginger Miso Quinoa

    Preheat oven to 450°F. Trim and discard skin of ginger. In a small pot, whisk miso and 1⅓ cups water until miso is dissolved. Add quinoa and whole ginger knob to pot with miso and water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium low, cover, and simmer until water is evaporated and quinoa is tender, about 15 minutes. Taste and add salt as needed. Remove pot from heat and set aside, still covered.

    While quinoa cooks, rinse all produce. Quarter cucumber lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise and place in a medium bowl. Trim and discard scallion root, thinly slice, and add to bowl with cucumber. Cut sweet potato into ½-inch dice and place on a baking sheet. 

  3. Roast Sweet Potatoes

    On baking sheet, toss sweet potatoes with 1½ tablespoons canola oil, ½ teaspoon salt and pepper as desired to coat. Arrange in a single layer and roast, mixing halfway through, until tender and slightly charred, about 15 minutes total. Remove from oven and toss with sesame seeds. Set aside.
