Sweet Potato and Spinach Quinoa Breakfast Skillet

We’re rolling out one last recipe from the 21 Day Vegetarian Reset before hopping back into our usual routine next week of exploring ingredients, starting with ***drumroll*** COCOA! Ah, I’m so excited. But first, let’s get our health thing on. This Quinoa Breakfast Skillet is seriously loaded with veggies. You basically just cook them until soft then add quinoa and vegetable broth and cook until the broth is absorbed. So easy!

I’ll be back next week with stories and recipe inspiration from a weekend spent skiing in Switzerland, but for now I must go pack up all my fluffy socks, long johns, and five hours worth of car snacks. Have a great weekend!

    This was a nice recipe, but I think it would be much easier to just add cooked quinoa to the dish at the end, rather than adding it in dry with veg broth. It just added too much time, and the quinoa didn’t really cook well when I did it. Otherwise, lovely dish!

    1. Sarah says:

      Hey Maddy! That could work too 🙂 I like to cook the quinoa in vegetable broth so it soaks up all that good flavor and saves on dishes, but if you’re short on time cooking it separately is definitely a smart idea! Happy you enjoyed it and thanks for stopping by! 😀

  2. Tess says:

    Love sweet potato recipes! And yours sounds yummy, thanks! But don’t love bell peppers. Could you recommend a substitute for the bell pepper? Thx!

    1. Sarah says:

      Hi Tess! Do you like any peppers? If so, poblano peppers may work well. They’re a bit spicier (but not too hot, just take out the seeds.) Otherwise you could substitute any vegetable you like really (I think mushrooms would be nice!)

  3. mary says:

    does this mean only the sweet potato’s in the produce . or can you use the ones in the can?

    1. Sarah says:

      Hi Mary! I haven’t tried this with canned sweet potato before.It might get a little too mushy, so I would recommend adding it later into cooking. Would love to know how it goes if you try it out!
