One of my favourite things about food is cooking up some big bowls of food, popping on the table and getting everyone to help themselves. Food is a way of bonding, catching up and reflecting with your friends and family. This quinoa, sweet potato, pea and kale bowl is perfect for this kind of occasion.
I also like whipping it up to whack in a lunch box with a side of mackerel, or chicken! Let me know how you serve yours by leaving a comment below…

Preheat the oven to 200C.
Cut the sweet potato into cm cubes. Melt the coconut oil and rub the sweet potato in this with the cumin, cinnamon, cayenne and a big pinch of salt.
Roast for 30 minutes until cooked through and golden.
Cook the quinoa by rinsing it first then place it in a pot with a pinch of salt and 450ml of water, bring to the boil and cook for 12-15 minutes until cooked through and all the water has evaporated.
Shred the kale and place it in the pot with the quinoa, stir well and add a pinch of salt. Add the olive oil, peas, cooked sweet potato and serve.
