Sweet potato, kale, and quinoa salad

  • 1 c. quinoa
  • 1 1/2 c. water
  • 1 1/2 Tbs. whey
  • 1 c. vegetable broth

Soak the quinoa in the water and whey overnight.  Bake the sweet potatoes (425 degrees F) until done and chop up.  Drain and rinse the quinoa using a fine sieve.  Add vegetable broth to quinoa and cook on lowest setting until absorbed (~30 min).  Steam the kale and chop it up.  Combine the avocado, cilantro, sea salt, lime juice, and sweet potatoes.  Combine the sweet potato mixture with the cooked quinoa and kale.  Can serve with toasted pepitas.
