From the Test Kitchen

For a spicy kick, you’ll coat diced sweet potatoes with chipotle chile paste before roasting them, then toss them with quinoa and a bright medley of summer vegetables. For deliciously crispy, creamy contrast, you’ll finish each bowl with toasted tortilla strips and a dollop of yogurt brightened with fresh lime juice.

Prepare & roast the sweet potatoes:
1 Prepare & roast the sweet potatoes:

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Heat a medium pot of salted water to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil. Medium dice the sweet potatoes. Place in a large bowl. Add as much of the chile paste as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to thoroughly coat. Transfer to the prepared sheet pan and arrange in an even layer. Roast 22 to 24 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Leaving the oven on, carefully transfer the roasted sweet potatoes to a bowl. Reserving the sheet pan, discard the aluminum foil.

Cook the quinoa:
2 Cook the quinoa:

While the sweet potatoes roast, add the quinoa to the pot of boiling water. Cook, uncovered, 14 to 16 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot.

Prepare the remaining ingredients:
3 Prepare the remaining ingredients:

While the quinoa cooks, halve the tomatoes. Cut off and discard the ends of the radishes; halve lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Thinly slice the cucumber into rounds. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions. Thinly slice, separating the white bottoms and green tops. Zest the lime to get 1 teaspoon (if you don’t have a zester, use a peeler to remove the rind, avoiding the white pith; mince the rind). Quarter the lime. If necessary, peel 1 clove of garlic (you will have extra). Finely chop the garlic; using the flat side of your knife, smash until it resembles a paste (or use a zester). Stack the tortillas; cut in half, then cut crosswise into ¼-inch- wide strips.

Marinate the vegetables:
4 Marinate the vegetables:

In a medium bowl, combine the halved tomatoes, sliced radishes, cucumber, and white bottoms of the scallions, lime zest, the juice of 3 lime wedges, and as much of the garlic paste as you’d like. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

5 Make the crispy tortilla strips:

While the vegetables marinate, place the tortilla strips on the same sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; carefully toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Toast in the oven 8 to 10 minutes, or until lightly browned and crispy. Remove from the oven.

Make the lime yogurt & serve your dish:
6 Make the lime yogurt & serve your dish:

While the tortillas toast, in a bowl, combine the yogurt, 1 tablespoon of water, and the juice of the remaining lime wedge. Season with salt and pepper.

Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve the finished quinoa topped with the crispy tortilla strips, lime yogurt, and sliced green tops of the scallions. Enjoy!
