"The flavors of the broccoli and sweet potatoes compliment each other wonderfully in this recipe! I wasn't sure if steaming the sweet potatoes was necessary or not. It might be okay to skip that step. However, I wasn't sure if they would get tender enough by just cooking them in oil, so I went ahead and did it and it turned out great!" — BETHANYMGILES

sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch cubes
frozen chopped broccoli, thawed

We really enjoyed this recipe. I chopped the onion in a very fine dice, fried it with 4 cloves of garlic until it was slightly soft, then added the raw sweet potato to it, fried until the sweet potato started getting soft, then added the broccoli (I used fresh), but the lid on it, until the broccoli was done. I used roasted, unsalted almonds, which I chopped... sprinkled them on top of the finished dish along with some dried cranberries. Ginger and cinnamon would be a nice addition, but it's very good as-is. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
This was a decent dish, my family enjoyed it. It is definitely simple and a little plain...it needed lots of soy sauce to add flavor.
I got creative with this recipe based on other reviews and omitted the garlic powder, used 3 cloves fresh chopped, threw those in the pan with the onions, added all the other ingredients plus sprinkled ground ginger, some nutmeg and cinnamon then about a 1/2 cup of dried cranberries, just a hodge podge of ingredients and it turned out amazing! Each bite has a surprise of flavors and I chopped up the almonds so they weren't whole and it gives it a nice crunch. This is one of those recipes you can't really mess up and fun to play around with.
A nice balanced dish. I used 2 sweet potatoes and fresh broccoli, and I added some ginger because I had it on hand- I think that gives the dish the flare it needs!
I used amaranth instead of quinoa, green onions, fresh broccoli, and fresh garlic. I might have changed too much to make this an authentic review! I think I will fry the sweet potato along with the broccoli, onion and garlic next time. The texture of steamed sweet potatoes with the crunchiness of the grain and stir fried veggies left something to be desired. This tasted fine, but next time I will try adding ginger for additional flavor and cut back on the soy sauce!
This is simply wonderful! I used coconut oil instead of canola oil which gives it a bit of a sweet exotic flavor. The second time I made it I also added a bit of ginger as other suggested. Definately one of my favorite dishes!
Added cinnamon and craisans very good
This was soooo good! I followed all of Momi's suggestions. :)
