5 tbsp Smoked Paprika & Macadamia Nut Pesto (see recipe)

3 oz Spinach (about 2 ½ cups)

Re-heat the roasted sweet potatoes and then toss in 3 tablespoons of pesto. Place potatoes in a serving bowl; top with wilted spinach and then place cauliflower steak over the spinach. Garnish with crumbled ricotta, chopped cilantro and a drizzle of the remaining pesto. Makes 1 serving
