Summer Superfood Salad
  1. 3 sweet potatoes peeled and cubed
  2. 3 large beets peeled and cubed
  3. 1 head of kale, ripped into tiny pieces
  4. 2 large handfuls of baby arugula
  5. 1 avocado, diced
  6. ½ a bag of frozen peas, thawed
  7. 2 cups cooked quinoa (I used a mix of white, black, and red quinoa)
  8. 2 Tbs pine nuts
  9. 2 Tbs pumpkin seeds
  10. olive oil
  11. sea salt and fresh cracked pepper
  1. For the quinoa: In a pot over medium heat, bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Add quinoa and a dash of sea salt and cook covered until all the moisture is absorbed, about 15mins. Remove from heat and keep covered.
  2. For the roasted beets and sweet potatoes: Place veggies in a ziplock bag and drizzle with a small amount of olive oil. Seal the bag and shake ingredients until veggies are fully coated. Spread evenly onto a baking sheet lined with foil and roast for 35 to 40 minutes. Use a spatula or wooden spoon to flip your veggies about halfway through. Cook until vegetables are cooked through and slightly browned.
  3. Assembly: Layer all your ingredients in a large bowl and toss with fresh cracked pepper and a dash of your favorite vinaigrette dressing (mine is Garlic Expressions available at most grocery stores).
