Bowl Ingredients -

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Peel and chop the sweet potato into 1-inch cubes. Lay the chunks out on a parchment lined tray. Sprinkle cumin, paprika, garlic powder, sea salt & pepper, and 1 Tbsp olive oil over the potatoes. Mix with your hands. Bake for 10 minutes, turn with a spatula. Bake an additional 10 minutes.
Lay the sliced mushrooms on a separate parchment-lined tray and drizzle 1 Tbsp olive oil and garlic powder over the top. Toss to combine and roast for 20 minutes.
While the mushroom's and potatoes are cooking, rinse the quinoa and cook it according to package directions. Let sit for 5 minutes, covered. Fluff with a fork.
Assemble pistachio kale sauce ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
