I hope everyone have had a wonderful weekend. I spend the weekend in London. I love London and all it has to offer. There are some many awesome juice and raw food/ plantbased restaurants and I got to try some really cool places. For everyone that is living in London or are thinking about vising soon there is especially two places I would recommend, Nama Food( Notting hill) and Wild Food Café( Covent Garden). These two places have so much delicious raw and plantbased food and not to mention a huge variety of raw cakes that are to die for. Anyways, the recipe I wanted to share with you all today is sweet potato and pomegranate quinoa salad. This is such as delicious salad that I love having for lunch.

Ingredients: ( serves approximately  3-4) 

2 medium sweet potato

The seeds of 1 pomegrant

2 cups ruccula

¾ cup quinoa

200 gram cherry tomatos

Salt

Pepper

Olive oil

A squeeze of lemon

Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 190 degrees.
  • Chop the sweet potato. Place on a tray and drizzle with salt and olive oil
  • Cook for about 35 minutes or until tender.
  • Meanwhile cook the quinoa for about 15 minutes to the grains unwrap themselves.
  • Set the quinoa to cool.
  • In a bowl toss together the sweet potatoes, quinoa, pomegranate seeds, and ruccula season with salt, pepper and lemon juice. Taste and adjust the seasoning and serve
