Sweet Potato with Spinach, Quinoa, Flax Seed and Green Onions

I found an amazing recipe using healthy ingredients.   I bought a large bag of Sweet Potato’s and I needed to find different ways to use them.   After some search through Pinterest I located this delicious Sweet Potato with Quinoa and green veggies recipe.  I made a couple of adjustments for my own flavor taste- I switched out Kale for Spinach- just preference and I used 1 egg and added in Flax Seeds and Green Onions.  I used Coconut Oil – just 1 Tablespoon.  These will be soft- and you need to carefully remove them from the pan- you can easily cut into them with a fork or spoon. I didn’t use cornmeal in my recipe it will probably give it a more crunchy type of flavor.  I loved this so much I”m going to work it in every week- makes a perfect side dish and can be a quick pack and go lunch. :))  I found this recipe from Yes, More Please food blogger.
