The coconut milk and sweet potatoes help tame the heat from the harissa in this flavorful meal. If you use low-sodium chicken broth, be sure to add a little salt to the quinoa while it's cooking.

I was a little hesitant to make this with no previous reviews but I was pleasantly surprised by how delicious it was. I'm a pretty discriminating cook! Made this with Israeli couscous instead of quinoa as I thought the texture would be a nice compliment. Liked the combination of flavors; clean bright taste of the cilantro creamy saltiness of the feta spicy sweetness of the sweet potatoes. Yum! Read More

Really complex and delightful flavor. I didn t have sweet potatoes or harissa so substituted regular potatoes with Sriracha and a little salt. Even that was great! Can t wait to make it the right way!! Read More
