Up your avocado game with these avocado sweet potato toasts. These make a great (and insta-worthy) party appetizer.
Sweet potato is high in Vitamin A, needed for clear skin.
Avocado contains healthy fats, Vitamin K for healthy bones, and folate.
Broccoli sprouts may help the body detox certain environmental toxins.
Here’s the recipe:
Avocado Sweet Potato Toast
SWEET POTATO ROUNDS
2 small/thin sweet potatoes, sliced into thin rounds
2-3 tsp. avocado oil or olive oil
1 avocado, cubed
2 Tbsp. red onion, minced
1/2 tsp. jalapeno or serrano chile, minced
1 tsp. cilantro, minced
salt to taste
broccoli sprouts (or any sprouts you can find)
- Preheat oven to 450F. In a large bowl, toss sweet potato wedges with oil, and sprinkle with a touch of salt and pepper. Lay out flat on a baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes. The thinner they are cut, the crisper they will be. Thicker slices will be softer, and equally delicious.
- Meanwhile, prepare the topping by putting the avocado, red onion, jalapeno, and cilantro in a bowl. Use a fork to mash well. Season with salt to taste.
- When sweet potato rounds are done, plate them, then spoon a small dollop in the middle of each. Top with a few sprouts. (If sprouts are long, cut the bottom of them off so they fit on your sweet potato rounds.)
