Recipe: Roasted Sweet Potatoes & Quinoa


INGREDIENTS

  • 3 sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed

  • 5 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  • kosher salt

  • Freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 c. dried quinoa, rinsed under cold water

  • 1/2 bunch Tuscan kale, thinly sliced

  • 1/2 c. dried cranberries

  • 1 tbsp. balsamic vinegar

  • 1/2 c. crumbled feta

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 425° and cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Arrange sweet potatoes on the baking sheet, then drizzle with 2 tablespoons olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat and roast until golden and tender, about 25 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, combine quinoa and 2 cups of water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, covered, 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit, covered, 5 minutes more. Scoop quinoa onto a paper towel-lined baking sheet to cool slightly.

  3. In a large bowl, combine quinoa, sweet potatoes, kale, and cranberries. In a small bowl, whisk together balsamic vinegar and remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil. Drizzle vinaigrette over salad, tossing gently to combine. Season with salt and pepper and stir in feta just before serving.
