- Roughly chop the parsley and artichoke hearts. Reserve 1 teaspoon of liquid from the artichoke heart marinade. To save time, scoop out the sundried tomatoes directly from the jar. Reserve 1 tsp of its oil to dress the quinoa.

- In a medium-size skillet, add half of the grapeseed oil and bring to temperature on medium heat. Add the diced sweet potato and saute until slightly charred (about 3-4 minutes). Remove the potato from the pan into the bowl of quinoa. Repeat this step with the zucchini.
