Hello dear friends! Here’s a meal that is dear to my tastebuds: it’s easy, quick, curbs cravings, and is so good for you!

Okay, so here’s how it goes: Pull out a medium size pot for the Sweet Potatoes and fill with water. Wait for it to boil. Take 1 cup of water and put it in another pot. Turn the stove on high and wait for water to boil as well. In the meantime, take out your coconut oil and put it in a frying pan on medium heat, add your spinach, season with salt, pepper, soy sauce, cover pan with a lid and let the spinach begin to steam. Stir occasionally. By now, your water for the quinoa is boiling, add quinoa and bring temp down to low, cover pot with lid. Sometimes I like to add a dollop of ghee, olive oil, or coconut oil to the water with the quinoa. Peel and cut sweet potato into 1/2 inch cubes. Once your water has boiled, add in sweet potatoes. Cover with a lid, if you want. Wait for the sweet potatoes to become nice and soft so that when you stick a fork in them it easily breaks in half. This process takes around 15 minutes. After your sweet potatoes have been placed in the water, check on your spinach, it’s probably done. Take off heat, leave lid on to preserve moisture and warmth. Check quinoa, when the water has steamed off and all the granules are soft and the “tail” of the quinoa can be seen, take it off heat and place in serving bowl. Add spinach on top. Once the sweet potatoes are ready put sweet potatoes through a strainer. Add coconut oil on top of them. Put on serving dish, season with salt and pepper. Top with Feta, Cranberry, and Pine nuts.

Bon Appetit!
