Peel and chop your sweet potatoes, place them in a dish, drizzle with olive oil (make sure you coat the potato with the oil). Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Roast for 20 minutes in the oven at 200°C (400°F)
Place the quinoa and half a cup of water in a pan on a high heat.
Bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer, cook for 15 to 20 minutes (the liquid needs to be absorbed and the quinoa tender).

Blend the mango, balsamic vinegar and water together.
Remove the quinoa off the heat, remove the potato from the oven.
Layer your jar with beans, add the quinoa, pour the dressing on top.
