Warm Quinoa and Yam Salad


Here is the Recipe of my Quinoa and Yam salad, it turns out very good, and I like it because it is warm, nutritious, easy to make, and YUMY:) It is warm so even in fall and winter you still like to eat it.


Quinoa                              1/2 cup

Yam                                   3

Kale                                   3 leaves

Red Bell pepper           1

Olive Oil


Salt and Pepper

Lemon Juice


1-Wash and cook quinoa, cooking quinoa is like cooking rice, so you can use your rice cooker!

2- Peel and dice Yam and put it in a pot with little bit of water and salt and cook it. Make sure you don’t over cook it, we don’t want it to be so soft.

3-When the yams are cooked drain the water and put them in frying pan in addition to chopped Red bell Pepper, and 1 tsp of dried Thyme ( or fresh ) and saute for 5 minutes with Olive oil.

4- In a large Bowl Chop Kale leaves into small pieces ( make sure you separate the leaves from stem )

5- Add cooked quinoa and sautéed Yam and Pepper to your Bowl and add some olive oil, salt and pepper and dash of lemon juice and Mix well. ( don’t add too much lemon juice since your Yam is sweet and you just want to balance the taste with a bit of lemon juice, so at the end your Salad shouldn’t taste sour)

Bonne a petit 🙂
