Meatless Monday: Sweet Potato Goodness!

I wish I could tell you that I came up with this recipe on my own, but alas I did not. My mom actually found it on the internet while looking for something new, different and something her and I could both have. (I’m a Vegetarian, she is not). So, if this was originally your idea, THANK YOU because this meal is so easy and delicious. It needs to be continuously shared!


  • Medium Size Sweet Potatoes
  • Quinoa
  • Spinach
  • Kale


  • Oven temperatures may vary but after poking holes into the sweet potatoes, I cook them at 425 degrees, until tender (probably 45 minutes).
  • I use these little Quinoa boil in a bag packets from Success because they’re super easy. I cook 2 of those in boiling water according to package directions.
  • Saute up the spinach and kale with some olive oil and I usually use some garlic and onion powder to season.
  • Next I combine the quinoa in with the vegetables to toss it all together.
  • Once the sweet potatoes are done, cut them in half, and make indentations with a fork to make the “boat” like shape and fill with the mixture.

If you were just making something for yourself I dare say you could put the sweet potatoes in the microwave for even faster cooking. This meal left me very full and very happy and the fact that it’s a healthy meal that is quick leaves my lazy cooking heart beaming.

I launched Miss Raee in 2016 purely for a twenty-something girl who is trying to figure it all out, who loves to write and finally decided to share it. I’ve had a hell of a time figuring out what I wanted this blog to be, and I’ve eventually narrowed it down to that I want this blog to be ME, every weird, quirky, loveable aspect of me and even more importantly anyone who also sees themselves as that weird, quirky, loveable person who might love plant-based cooking, multiple fandoms including Star Wars, Supernatural, Greys Anatomy, DC TV, Marvel, The Magicians and SO much more. I found myself being an advocate for mental health, for animals, for the environment, and for equality. I’m a big believer in the vibes you bring, the power of music, and how important the storytelling of books and movies and TV can be. If I’m not on the blog, you can find me sharing selfies and nonsense on Instagram @/amandaraeex3 and live-tweeting and putting in my two cents on twitter at @/amandaraee_x3, so I hope you’ll tag along with me on here and my social media and enjoy all the weird, quirky things we all love.
