Serves 2

Total Time: 25 minutes


·      2 cups cooked quinoa

·      2 cups chopped romaine lettuce

·      1 bell pepper, deseeded and sliced into strips

·      1 sweet potato, sliced into thin circles

·      ½ cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained

·      1 small cucumber, sliced

·      1 small handful cherry tomatoes, sliced

·      2 tablespoons olive oil

·      Salt and pepper to taste


 1.     Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Toss the sweet potatoes with 1 tablespoon olive oil, spread evenly on a baking sheet, and bake until tender, 10-15 minutes.

2.     In the meantime, sauté the sliced peppers over high heat with 1 tablespoon olive oil until charred and tender, about 6-8 minutes.

3.     Divide the quinoa and lettuce between 2 bowls. Split the cooked potatoes and peppers between the bowls, and arrange with the sliced cucumbers, tomatoes, and beans. Drizzle over the dressing, and serve extra on the side. Enjoy!
