Ingredients for Loaded Sweet Potato Avocado Toast:
- 1 medium avocado
- Approximately 4 slices of whole-grain bread
- A squeeze of lemon
- Salt and pepper
For Version #1: Spicy Sweet Potato
- ½ cup cubed sweet potatoes
- A few teaspoons of adobo sauce (from a can of chipotles in adobo)*
- 1 tablespoon toasted pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
- ½ serrano pepper, sliced
For Version #2: Kale & Pickled Radish
- A few leaves of kale, torn and massaged with a little olive oil or lightly blanched
- A few pickled radishes or pickled onions
- 1 tablespoon Happy Hemp seeds
- A few sprouts
- Begin by chopping your sweet potatoes into small cubes. Drizzle them with olive oil, salt, and pepper, then roast them in the oven at 400 degrees for approximately 20 minutes. Alternatively, you can brown the edges of the sweet potatoes in a skillet for about 10 minutes. If they’re not fully cooked, add a little water, cover, and let them steam until tender.
- Toast your bread to your desired level of crispiness. Use the back of a fork to spread avocado onto each slice. Squeeze a bit of lemon juice over the avocado, and season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
- Now, it’s time to load up your avocado toast with toppings according to your chosen version. For the Spicy Sweet Potato version, layer on the roasted sweet potatoes, drizzle with adobo sauce, sprinkle with toasted pepitas, and garnish with sliced serrano pepper. For the Kale & Pickled Radish version, arrange the torn kale leaves, pickled radishes (or pickled onions), Happy Hemp seeds, and sprouts.
