I wanted to get some advice on what sort of dishes I could make with these two items as main ingredients individually. Yams, I wanted to make a paste or pate out of this that could complement a salad or something it could be hearty or sweet, and Quinoa sprouts, is there a Tabouli recipe, that doesn't use wheat, that uses Quinoa as a main ingredient, or even a stufiing, as well as any other sprouted Quinoa heavy recipes. thanks.

Raw Sweet Potato Casserole Recipe #151259
Creamy, slightly sweet casserole topped with walnuts. Yes, it's made with raw sweet potato and the texture isn't exactly like your typical sweet potato casserole, but I love it! Tweaked the original recipe from Herbs for Health magazine, which called for dehydrating the nuts. Prep time does not include soaking the nuts overnight.
30 min 30 min prep
1 1/2 cups pecans or walnuts, soaked overnight, then drained (let dry a bit on a paper towel)
4 cups peeled and chopped sweet potatoes
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup dates, soaked for about 20 minutes
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla (this is not a raw product)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup honey
Put potatoes, 1/2 C nuts, dates, cinnamon and vanilla in processor and puree till smooth.
Pour into a casserole dish.
In another bowl, mix the remaining 1 C nuts with salt and honey, and sprinkle over the potato mixture.
I enjoyed this at room tempurature, but still good straight out of the frig.
