I love this recipe! But I struggled with the portions. I ended up with a TON of quinoa, hardly any greens and about 3/4c. of sweet potato mixture when I split everything 6 ways. What should the portions be exactly? Thanks!

I’ve been in such a food rut and this is the best thing I’ve made in SO long! I used rice instead of quinoa & doubled up on the curry. Also drizzled yogurt on top. This is so good it HURTTSSSS

OhhEmmGee. This was phenomenal. I never thought of roasting the kale/spinach but it worked. I’m trying to have more meatless meals and the variations here are endless. I’m eating it now and can’t wait for leftovers for lunch.

The flavor on this recipe far exceeded my expectations! I really thought it was just going to taste like, well…vegetables. But it is definitely full of flavor! I topped my bowls with some avocado green goddess dressing and loved every bite.
