Ingredients:

1 cup Quinoa

1 Sweet Potato

2-3 Carrots

1 head of Broccoli

1 cup of Spinach

1 Avocado

Coconut Oil/Olive Oil

1 tsp Cumin

1 tsp Chili Powder

A pinch of Salt

A pinch of Pepper

Toppings: Salad dressing of choice (I used Annie’s Goddess Dressing) and nutritional yeast

Serves: 2 

Cooking Time: 20-25 min.

Begin with a medium and a small pot. Put 2 cups of water in the small pot and fill the medium pot with 3/4 of the way. Put both on high heat and wait for them to boil. While waiting, measure out 1 cup of quinoa as well as peel and cut your sweet potato into small pieces, no larger than 1/2 inch thick. Once both waters are boiling, place the quinoa in the small pot, cover with a lid, and place on medium/low heat. Place the sweet potato into the medium pot, cover with a lid, and place of medium/high heat. While those cook, take out a frying pan and place either coconut oil or olive oil into the pan. Put in enough to spread evenly across the bottom. Cut up Broccoli and Carrots, place in the pan on medium/high heat. dd in cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper. Stir and then cover with a lid and turn the heat on medium/low. As the vegetables steam, check our quinoa. If all the water as evaporated, taste and make sure the grain is soft. If not, add another cup of water and place the lid so that it creates a vent between the lid and the pot. Let steam for another 5 minutes. If it is ready, take off heat. Check sweet potatoes with a fork. Once they are soft and easy fall apart, strain them and place into the pan with vegetables. Stir around until the oil and seasonings evenly coat all the vegetables. Take off of heat. Place quinoa and veggies in a serving bowl, add spinach and avocado. Add salad dressing and nutritional yeast.
