Morroccan spiced roasted sweet potato with cauliflower, kale and quinoa

I love making a warm salad, especially as it’s now getting a bit cooler over here in Sydney. This is my favourite combination but you could roast different vegetables in the spices such as: zucchini, pumpkin, broccoli, carrots and capsicum.

I make a lime and coriander coconut yoghurt to go with this salad but you could use natural yoghurt if you eat dairy.

You know how much I like making my life easy with healthy food and this is a dish you can prepare in advance if you are roasting a big tray of vegetables in order to make a few different dishes (#mealprep).

You will need:

1 large sweet potato

1/2 a cauliflower

1 cup of kale

I cup of cooked quinoa

toasted almonds

1 tbsp moroccan spice mix (see notes)

Coriander and lime yoghurt

1/4 cup of chopped coriander

3 tbsp of coconut yoghurt

juice and zest of 1/2 a lime

pinch salt

pinch pepper


  • Preheat your oven to 150 degrees C.
  • Prepare the sweet potato and cauliflower in a roasting tray. Drizzle with olive oil and the moroccan spice mix. Place into the preheated oven for around 25 minutes or until the vegetables are cooked.
  • Cook the quinoa: rinse the quinoa until the water runs clear, place the rinsed quinoa into a pan with 2 cups of water and a dash of apple cider vinegar. Bring the water to a boil and then reduce to a simmer until all the water has absorbed (around 10 – 15 minutes). Leave the quinoa in the pan to cool.
  • Massage the kale with olive oil, salt and pepper until kale is limp.
  • Toast some almonds in a hot pan on the stove and pace to one side
  • Place all of the ingredients for the yoghurt into a bowl and mix well
  • Assemble the quinoa, roasted vegetables and kale into a bowl or plate. Top with the yoghurt and toasted almonds.
  • Enjoy x x


  • A good moroccan spice blend includes: ground cumin, ground ginger, ground cinnamon, ground coriander, cayenne, ground allspice, ground cloves, salt and pepper
  • This recipe will appear on the Chefs Palate menu in June.
