  • 3. Remove quinoa from heat and leave lid on to cool. Remove sweet potato and chop.

  • 4. In a large non-stick pan, heat coconut butter until melted. Add chopped sweet potato (both varieties) and cook until slightly brown and crunchy. Add salt and pepper here if desired.

  • 5. In a large bowl, add cooked quinoa and 1/2 of dressing and mix well. Add sweet potato and rocket, mix well, then top with avocado and pomegranate and remaining dressing.
