Total Time: 55 min
2 teaspoons coconut oil, divided
2 cups cubed sweet potatoes
sea salt and ground black pepper to taste
2 cups whole grains (quinoa or brown rice or combo)
½ onion, diced
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 cup stemmed and chopped kale
½ cup shredded carrots
¼ cup dairy-free pesto
¼ cup pine nuts, for garnish
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Grease a rimmed baking sheet with 1 teaspoon of the coconut oil.
Spread the sweet potatoes in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet and season with salt and pepper. Bake, for 40 minutes, turning once, or until browned on both sides.
While the sweet potatoes are in the oven, cook the whole grains according to the package directions.
Heat the remaining 1 teaspoon coconut oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion, mushrooms and kale and cook, stirring often, until tender, about 5 minutes.
Combine the sweet potatoes, whole grains, vegetable mixture, and pesto in a large bowl and toss to mix. Divide among 4 bowls and garnish with the pine nuts.
