Roasted Sweet Potato & Quinoa Salad [Vegan]



  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 teaspoon rub seasoning
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa (I recommend cooking in vegetable stock)
  • 5 large handfuls spinach
  • 2 handfuls arugula
  • 1 large avocado, peeled and chopped
  • Small handful parsley, finely chopped
  • 5 tablespoons pomegranate arils

For the Lemon Tahini Dressing:

  • 4 tablespoons  tahini
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Juice half to one lemon (to taste)
  • 2 teaspoons
  • 1 tablespoon  maple syrup (to taste)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Water, to thin


  1. Preheat the oven to 210C, then line a large baking tray. In a mixing bowl, toss together your sweet potato cubes with a drizzle of oil, along with the paprika and sea salt and black pepper to taste. Place on the baking tray and roast for 15 minutes, before turning and roasting for a further 10-15 minutes, or until crisp on the outside and fluffy inside. Set aside.
  2. In the meantime, make your tahini dressing by whizzing all ingredients together in a small processor (alternatively, just mix with a fork!).
  3. Add a tablespoon of water at a time until you reach your desired consistency, then season to taste.
  4. Make your salad by tossing together the cooked quinoa, spinach, rocket, avocado, pomegranate, chopped parsley and cooked sweet potato. Serve warm or cold, drizzled with tahini dressing.
