Post Workout Power Bowl

WHAT YOU NEED

  • 1 medium yam
  • ½ cup (90g) dried quinoa 
  • ¼ cup (48g) green lentils
  • 4 cups (80g) rocket 
  • 2 tbsp. dried cranberries (optional)

DRESSING

  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. water
  • 1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp. maple syrup 
  • ½ tsp. tarragon 


WHAT YOU NEED TO DO?

Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Peel the yam and chop into cubes, toss in a pinch of salt and pepper. Place the yam onto a lined baking sheet and place in the oven for 20 minutes until cooked through.


Place the quinoa and green lentils in a pot with 2
¾ cups (660ml) of water. Bring to the boil then reduce the heat to a simmer, cover with lid and cook for 20 minutes.

To make the dressing mix the water, mustard, maple syrup, tarragon, and a pinch of salt and pepper in a small bowl with a whisk. [You can omit this step if using store-bought salad dressing.] 

To assemble, place the rocket on a large platter and top with the cooked quinoa, lentils, and yams. Drizzle with the dressing and serve onto two plates.
