My honey thinks that sweet potatoes should be a dessert item so I avoid using them when possible, but really wanted to try this recipe. So I added some frozen shredded hash browns that I had left over. We wrapped it up in burritos to make it more of a meal. Yum!!

Wondering if one of the team leaders might be able to give us an approximate measurement (in cups) of how much sweet potato we should have after shredding them?

Made this also. Not a favorite. Same issue with too much sweet potato and had to switch to a larger pan. Next time, only one sweet potato. Maybe I'm not a fan of Quinoa - first time.

I just made this tonight and really liked it. I made some modifications because after I started mixing things up, I really felt like maybe my sweet potatoes were extra large and a bit too much so I started increasing the quantity of everything else. Then used an 11x17 pan and increased baking time by 10-15 minutes.

I'll be making it again for sure.

I made the Black Bean Quinoa casserole and didn't have any problem. The sweet patatoe was supposed to be shredded if I remember right....which wouldn't take much cooking time...wonder if your oven temp. is wrong?

I have not; but, this is good to know so I'm prepared for the extra time when I do. I have this on my list of the recipes I planned to try soon.

Did you like it?
