INSTRUCTIONS

1
Roast the yams

Preheat the oven to 425°F. Add yams, 2 tsp vegetable oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper to a baking sheet, and toss. Bake until wedges are crisp and slightly browned, 20 to 25 minutes.

2
Cook the rice

Add quinoa speckled rice, 1¼ cups water, and a pinch of salt to a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat to low, and cook until the water is absorbed and rice is tender, 15 to 20 minutes.

3
Marinate the spicy cucumbers

Add cucumber, chile garlic sauce, and rice vinegar to a medium bowl and toss.

4
Prepare the citrus aioli

Add lime zest, lime juice, Vegenaise, and a pinch of salt to a small bowl and mix the citrus aioli.

5
Cook the spinach

Heat 1 tsp vegetable oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add baby spinach, just 2 tsp sesame seeds, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook until spinach is wilted, 1 to 2 minutes.

6
Serve

Divide the quinoa speckled rice between bowls. Add roasted yam wedges, sesame spinach, and spicy cucumbers, and drizzle with citrus aioli. Tear the nori sheet into pieces and sprinkle over the bowls. Top the Japanese yam sushi bowls with the remaining sesame seeds. Serve with lime wedges. Itadakimasu! (In Japan, this is often said before a meal to express thanks to whomever prepared the food.)
