  • 4 sweet potatoes
  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped

  • Olive oil, as needed
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Cillantro, for serving


  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350ºF. Once heated, bake sweet potatoes on a sheet pan for about 45 minutes or until cooked through. Remove from oven and slice lengthwise, not cutting all the way through.

  • Step 3

    Put quinoa in a small sauce pan with 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and let simmer until cooked, about 20 minutes.

  • Step 4

    Mix quinoa with vegetables and stuff sweet potatoes. Mix yogurt with lemon juice, then use it to drizzle on top, along with fresh cilantro.
