I swear, I could eat sweet potato and avocado exclusively for the rest of my life! I ate this winning combo for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the past few weeks. These photos are from my last few dates with these amazing ingredients. In most cases, the sweet potatoes were microwaved until almost cooked through, then chopped and pan fried in a drizzle of olive oil, salt and pepper, cayenne, paprika, cumin, and nutmeg. The possibilities are endless!
For a breakfast idea, pan fry sweet potato with onions, fresh avocado, salsa, and cilantro.
A great salad idea is pan fried sweet potato, fresh avocado, green onion, red pepper, and sweet raisins all tossed in a good dose of lime juice. Next time I would add sliced or chopped almonds, too!
A stuffed sweet potato makes a super quick dinner staple, especially if you microwave your sweet potato whole. Just put it on a paper towel and make some surface slices into it with a knife. Most sweet potatoes should only take 5 minutes in the microwave. Then slice it open, mash the insides with a fork, put a tablespoon of Earth Balance on top to melt, and top with freshly made guacamole (my super guacamole is the best and packed with protein). I added carrot ribbons for extra crunch!
If you haven’t jumped on the sweet potato and avocado bandwagon yet, you are truly missing out! Hopefully this gives you some ideas to start eating these vegetables together. Let me know how you combine these two tasty veggies!
