Happy Friday friends! I’m gonna kick off this recipe by admitting that it’s not the most summery looking. It’s getting me all excited for fall, so I’m just going to pretend that that’s where we’re at already. It has an amazing combination of ingredients, some inherently summery (avocados) and some that make me think of fall/winter (cranberries). There’s no food police around here though, right?? We make what we want! 🙂

This is another recipe from Cookie and Kate, but this time I’ve adapted it for the pressure cooking loving folks. If you don’t have a pressure cooker, you can cook your quinoa according to package directions and roast your sweet potatoes.  If you are using your pressure cooker, your time might vary between 2 & 5 minutes under high pressure, depending on how soft you like your potatoes. I cooked mine for 5 originally and it overcooked the potatoes a bit, so 3 seems to be the better choice unless you like your potatoes mushy.

Have an amazing weekend!!
