Cook the quinoa (2:1 one ratio water to quinoa)
Chop the sweet potato into bite sized pieces, place on a parchment lined baking sheet, toss in the olive oil and cinnamon, and bake for 25 minutes until soft. Optional: Broil for 2 – 3 minutes to get a nice char/crunch.
Chop your kale and massage it to help break up the tenderness. You can add a little olive oil to help it along here.
