I almost donʼt want to tell you how good for you this dish is, I am afraid you will shake your head and say “oh no, my kids wonʼt eat that healthy”, but.....will your kids eat sweet potatoes with marshmallows? Will they eat itty bitty grains of pasta. If so, they will like these healthier versions of the two.
Although not a common item in most kitchens today, quinoa is a protein rich seed that has a fluffy, creamy, slightly crunchy texture and a flavor not unlike pasta or couscous. Combine it with sweet potatoes that have been baked until they sweet and soft on the inside, and sticky crunchy on the outside, and you have a dinner that you would never know could be considered a super food, high in protein, vitamins, fiber and calcium.
If you can add kale, spinach or chard as well, you have the healthiest, tasty dish in the land, but if the kids in your life draw the line at cooked greens, then throw in some vegetable they like corn or peas.
