Bittman Recipe Reminder

Can someone help me remember a recipe from Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything Vegetarian?

I am away from my apartment, and I want to make the Sweet Potato and Qunioa salad recipe from How to Cook Everything Vegetarian. I'm pretty sure it's in the salads section.

I just need a refresher on the more subtle ingredients and method. If someone could put a bare-bones version of the recipe up, I would be most appreciative. Gracias!

hope this is ok legal-wise

Try "Search Inside" the book on Amazon. I searched for "quinoa" and the recipe appears on page 84. I would link directly to the page but I don't think Amazon's URLs allow for that.

Quinoa and Sweet Potato Salad

1 cup dry quinoa
2 cups vegetable stock
1 large sweet potato, diced
2 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
Black pepper and sea salt, to taste
Dash of cayenne pepper
2 tsp. organic lemon juice

• Preheat the oven to 350°F.
• Place the quinoa and vegetable stock in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer until the stock is absorbed. Transfer to a bowl and let cool.
• Coat the diced sweet potatoes with 1 Tbsp. of the olive oil and the pepper, salt, and cayenne. Transfer to a sheet pan and roast until crisp. Remove from the oven and let cool.
• In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the lemon juice and the remaining 1 Tbsp. of olive oil. Season with the salt and pepper. Stir in the diced sweet potatoes and the quinoa and serve.

Makes 4 servings

That's slightly different, I see now. Sorry!
