Make Your Own (Quinoa) Sundaes

full star full star full star full star full star

Let me start by telling you that it's pronounced "keen-wa", and let me say further that this grain (okay, it's technically a seed) is not only wildly wholesome, it is also incredibly yummy: tender and crunchy, with a mild, grainy flavor that takes well to things like butter, cheese, and citrus. If you are unsure about it, try just following the quinoa directions below, and add the lemon zest and juice, but then instead of olive oil stir in a big blob of good butter and serve it just like that. It is very hard not to like. But if you do it this way, you'll have a crazy-delicious citrus-scented bowl of food that will, quite literally, energize you.

Packed with vitamins and fiber, super sweet potatoes make a vibrant base for this easy, family-pleasing curry. If you can find them, choose the extra-sweet jewel variety of sweet potatoes (they may be called "yams") with their vivid, smooth flesh.
