Quinoa bowl with veggies and miso gravy

I made this recipe just before a huge history and literature exam. I had to be quick, because I still had notes to read through.DSC03731Luckily, the exam turned out to be great. I will have my results on Wednesday, I hope I get As.


Anyway this bowl is great. It is perhaps something you would eat in autumn, but it was still amazing now.DSC03732

The gravy is quite salty so i do not recommend to salt the sweet potato a mushrooms.DSC03735
