Quinoa Salad w' Roasted Sweet Potato, Fetta, Olives, Sun Dried Tomatoes & Green Beans



This is a Serving for one...

Ingredients:

1/4 Cup of Dry Quinoa cooked to packet directions
4 Fresh Green Beans blanched in boiling water for a few minutes and then drained
6 Sun dried Tomatoes (I make my own in the dehydrator with dried herbs and Cracked Pepper and Sea Salt until really dry and rehydrate when I want to use them in hot water so they are virtually fat free)
50 Grams of Low Fat Lemnos Fetta Cheese
1 Small Sweet Potato roasted (see below)
6 Kalamata Olives Sliced
Balsamic Vinegar or Fat free Balsamic Dressing

What to do:

Toss it all together! That's it :-)


Slice your Sweet Potato in 1 cm slices. Throw into a snap lock bag with a small splash of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and some dried herbs of your choice. Toss them around in the bag to coat and place onto an oven tray lined with baking paper for easy clean up. Bake at 180 degrees until tender and a little crispy, approx 25 minutes depending in how much Sweet Potato you are baking.
