​Check out the recipe below👇

1 cup quinoa uncooked
2 cups water
4 sweet potatoes (1 lb)
3 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp coriander dried
1 can chickpeas (14 fl. oz/400 ml), drained and rinsed
3 oz chopped kale
1/3 cup goji berries
pinch red pepper flakes
pinch sea salt and pepper to taste

🌶Spiced Moroccan Dressing
1/4 cup olive oil + 2 tbsp
1/4 cup lemon juice
3 tbsp orange juice
1 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp dried coriander
1/4 tsp sea salt
pinch red pepper flakes

⏲ Steps
1. In a saucepan combine quinoa and water. Bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer and cook quinoa for 12-15 minutes. Fluff with a spoon and cover with tea towel. Let cool.
2. Preheat oven to 200C/400F. Chop sweet potato into small bite-sized cubes and toss in a large mixing bowl. Drizzle with olive oil, sea salt, cinnamon, cumin, and coriander. Mix to combine.
3. Line baking tray with parchment paper and transfer sweet potatoes onto tray, ensuring they are not overcrowded. You might need two baking trays for this. Cook for 35 minutes, or until sweet potatoes are golden and you can easily insert into the middle of the cubes with a fork.
4. Prepare dressing in a small bowl by whisking together oil, lemon juice, orange juice, maple syrup, cinnamon, ginger, cumin, coriander, sea salt and red pepper flakes.
5. In a large mixing bowl combine chopped kale, chickpeas, goji berries, quinoa and sweet potatoes. Pour over dressing and toss to combine. Optional to add more red pepper flakes, more sea salt and pepper to taste.
