    1/3 cup sliced yellow onion
    1 cup sliced cremini mushrooms (or your favorite variety)

    1 cup cooked quinoa
    1/8 teaspoon each: coarse sea salt, chile powder

Directions

  1. Poke holes in 3 sweet potatoes and microwave on high for 8 minutes, turning twice. If the potatoes are still hard, microwave in 2 minute increments until they soften.
