A comforting bowl of Harvest Quinoa Pilaf is all you need right now
Fall is all about comfort food, but that doesn’t mean we have to sacrifice being healthy. It also doesn’t mean that your healthier dishes have to be boring. This Harvest Quinoa Pilaf recipe isn’t your every day grain bowl. Instead, it’s packed with energy boosting and vitamin-rich ingredients like quinoa, pomegranates, and sweet potatoes. Together, they create a dynamic combination of flavors, textures, and colors. What’s not to love?! Oh, and it’s also is super easy to make and only uses one pot, for easy cleanup.
Delicious and nutrient-dense
I love cooking this dish for my Los Angeles postpartum personal chef clients because it’s loaded with all the nutrients they need, and is easy for new mom’s to digest. Quinoa is full of fiber, protein, and essential amino acids. Additionally, the other ingredients you’re cooking with it and folding in (sweet potatoes, cranberries, pistachios, and pomegranate seeds) are all offering you loads of essential nutrients.
How to serve Harvest Quinoa Pilaf
This is the perfect dish to bring for a potluck with your friends. First, because it holds up. Also, it’s just as tasty warm or at room temperature. It keeps and reheats well too. You can eat the Harvest Quinoa as a hearty main dish. (I’m not going to tell you not to add a little feta cheese). Or it’s a perfect side dish for any protein you choose. I think it’s perfectly festive and would also make a great addition to your holiday table.
