A touch of maple syrup takes this dish higher. Indulge in a veggie-forward recipe constructed around hearty soft-roasted sweet potatoes, caramelized in a delectable sauce rich with brown butter and maple flavours.

Start the sweet potatoes
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Halve the sweet potatoes lengthwise. On a lined sheet pan, toss with a drizzle of oil, ⅓ of the spices and S&P. Arrange, cut-sides down, and roast, without flipping, 30 to 35 min., until softened.

Make the maple brown butter
Meanwhile, in a medium pot, heat 3 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions) on medium. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 min., until beginning to foam; season with S&P. Add the maple syrup and cook, stirring frequently, 30 sec. to 1 min., until combined. Transfer to a small bowl. Reserve the pot.

Cook the quinoa
Zest the lemon. Using a strainer, rinse the quinoa. In the reserved pot, combine the quinoa, 1 cup water (double for 4 portions) and a pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer, 14 to 16 min., until tender. Add the lemon zest, ½ the maple brown butter, ½ the remaining spices and S&P. Fluff and keep warm.

Mise en place
Meanwhile, quarter the lemon. Small-dice the cucumber and tomatoes. Thinly slice the scallion, separating the white bottom and green top. Pick the dill fronds off the stems; roughly chop the fronds. In a second small bowl, make the vinaigrette by combining the vinaigrette, ⅓ of the dill and S&P. If necessary, thin out with 1 tsp water (double for 4 portions).

Finish the sweet potatoes & serve
When the sweet potatoes have softened, remove from the oven, flip and brush the cut-sides with the remaining maple brown butter. Switch the oven to broil, 2 to 3 min., until caramelized. Divide the quinoa between your plates. Top with the sweet potatoes and salad. Garnish with the green top of the scallion and the remaining dill and lemon wedges. Serve the vinaigrette on the side. Bon appétit!
