Roasted Sweet Potato Quinoa Salad

Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 10 mins
Total Time: 20 mins

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Coarse sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups water
  • 4-5 ounces fresh spinach, stems removed and coarsely chopped
  • 1 large avocado, chopped
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries
  • Optional: fresh basil, to taste

Lemon Vinaigrette:
  • 4 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoons dijon mustard, do not use regular mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 large lemon (3 tablespoons juice)

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Peel and coarsely (but evenly) chop your sweet potatoes. Place on a large sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and salt + pepper (to taste). Toss everything to coat and place in the preheated oven. Let roast for 15 minutes and then flip the potatoes and roast for an additional 10-20 minutes or until desired tenderness.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the quinoa. Rinse the quinoa in a fine mesh sieve to remove the bitter saponin coating. In a small saucepan, combine quinoa with water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and cover the pan with a lid.
  • Turn heat all the way to the lowest setting and cook covered for 15 minutes or until the water has completely absorbed in the quinoa.Turn off the heat and let stand covered for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, remove the lid and fluff the quinoa gently with a fork. Set aside. 
  • Toss the cooked quinoa and sweet potato in a large bowl. Allow to cool.
