1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 1/2 cups kale, chopped
2 cups cooked quinoa
Juice of half a lemon
1/4 cup raw pecan halves

- Preheat oven to 400 degree F. Spread sweet potatoes and onion on a parchment lined baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Roast for 30 minutes.
- Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add kale and sauté quickly for 2 to 3 minutes or until wilted, but still bright green. Season with a salt and pepper and set aside.
- Divide quinoa between two bowls. Squeeze a little lemon juice over each bowl and season quinoa with salt, pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil if desired. Stir to combine. Top each quinoa bowl with sweet potatoes, roasted onion, kale, pecans, and one soft boiled egg.
