sweet potato kale quinoa yum…

Happy Monday!

Last week I shared my perfect lunch with you. 

Today I’m going to deconstruct it. You’re getting one of my very favourite go-to recipes:  
baked sweet potato with kale and quinoa.

Ingredients:
  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • 1 red onion
  • 5 kale leaves (I used flat green and curly red)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • Big pinch sea salt
  • 1 cup quinoa, cooked

Chop onion and baked potato into large, bite-sized chunks. De-stem kale leaves and rip up into pieces.

 
Place onion and baked potato into a casserole dish. Top with coconut oil and salt. Bake at 375f for 40-45 minutes. Reduce heat to 350f, add kale to casserole dish and bake another 10-15 minutes. The potato should be tender, but be careful not to burn the kale. That’s it… oh, and enjoy! 🙂

It’s a perfectly balanced meal with protein (quinoa), complex carbs (sweet potato), greens (kale), and healthy fats (coconut oil)
You can also skip the quinoa and just serve the potatoes as a lovely side.



Happy t&s!
