Jump on the boat, the sweet potato boat

Some times my favorite meals are when I clean out the fridge and cabinets and basically just throw something together.
The other day I had a couple of sweet potatoes and some random leftover veggies so I decided to put them together. Actually, it worked and it took like 5 minutes to put together after I baked the sweet taters. Nice.
I also popped open a can of organic baked beans which totally rock. Crazy easy and a perfect side dish on a warm summer evening. I just wish I was floating on a boat somewhere. Madilyn kinda was in her Pack-in-Play in the kitchen. We can dream, right?

Sweet Potato Boat
Ingredients:
3 sweet potatoes
1 cup of quinoa
2 cups of vegetable stock
3 carrots, sliced thinly
2 stalks of celery, sliced thinly
2 leaves of greens (I used collards)
1 garlic clove, minced
Directions:
In a small saucepan, add the quinoa, stock, and veggies. Bring to a boil and then simmer for about 15 minutes. This is your filling for the boats.
In the meantime, bake the sweet potatoes. I usually rinse the potatoes under water and then stab with a fork a few times. Wrap with foil and bake for about 45-60 minutes at 350 degrees.
Slice the sweet potatoes in half and fill with the quinoa stuffing. You can also add a little dollop of fresh butter if you want.
Note: Quinoa is a complete protein so this recipe is a meal in itself but you can totally serve with chicken, beef or beans or maybe a nice mixed greens salad.
