Roasted Veggie Balsamic Quinoa Bowl

There is something so satisfying about curling up with a pair of chopsticks and a bowl full of goodness. This roasted veggie balsamic quinoa bowl is one of my all-time favourites. I first saw the recipe posted on the Joyous health blog a couple years ago, and have been making it ever since! The combination of  kale, sweet potatoes, and quinoa makes for a hearty lunch or dinner. quinoabowl

    This does sound wonderful! I love kale and quinoa but when paired with sweet potatoes it must be very satisfying. So glad to have found your blog will be back often.
