Colourful Quinoa Sweet Potato Boats


1 small sweet potato

1 tsp. olive oil

½ cup shredded lettuce

½ cup diced tomato

½ cup diced cucumber

¼ diced avocado

½ cup quinoa

1 cup water

2 tbsp. Greek yogurt

1 tsp chia seeds


Pre-heat oven to 200˚C and line an oven tray with baking paper.

Cut sweet potato in half, length-ways and drizzle with olive oil and season with salt.

Bake sweet potato for 30 minutes or until cooked through (you can test this by poking sweet potato with a fork – it should come out cleanly).

Place uncooked quinoa and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for approximately 15 – 20 minutes until liquid has been absorbed and quinoa is cooked through (add extra water if necessary).

Once sweet potato is cooked, allow to cool for 5 minutes and top with quinoa, shredded lettuce, diced tomato, cucumber, avocado, chia seeds and Greek yogurt.
