Simple salad with quinoa and oven baked sliced potatoes

Haters gonna hate, potatoes gonna potate! And I love potatoes, especially oven baked with a yummy marinade.


Ingredients
  • 2 potatoes
  • 50 g quinoa (uncooked)
  • 1 bell pepper (sliced)
  • 50 g tomatoes (sliced)
  • 1 shallot (sliced)
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Paprika powder
  • Black pepper
  • 20g pine nuts
  • A few chive leaves
Preheat the oven to  200ºC/400ºF. Slice the bottom off the potatoes and slice within 1/2 cm of the bottom. (You can place the potato on a large spoon so the edges of the spoon prevent you from slicing completely through the potato.) Mix the olive oil, crushed garlic cloves and cayenne pepper, paprika powder and black pepper for the marinade together. Sprinkle over the potatoes and bake for 30 minutes. Cook the quinoa. Place the veggies in a bowl, add the quinoa and stir together. Place the potatoes on top with some (chopped) chive leaves and pine nuts. Enjoy!
