Avocado On Sweet Potato 'Toast'

A Light Option Amid the Celebrations

If you are celebrating Christmas and New Year at this time of year and you are like me, you will probably go at least part way to over indulging. And while the goal is celebrate, you don’t want to end up in a food coma as a result of all the feasting. So my strategy this year is to have a range of lighter options up my sleeve to balance all the food fun. One of those options which I really like is Avocado on Sweet Potato ‘Toast’.

I like to mix the avocado with some crumbled feta cheese. It gives it an extra zing but if you want a wholly vegan option you can omit the feta. Instead you could include some spanish onion chopped finely. I love the mashed up avocado, seasoned with a squeeze of lemon, a little salt and pepper and dressed with a sprinkling of paprika.

The sweet potato ‘toasts’ are simply oven roasted slices of sweet potato. I have seen on Pinterest posts where foodies just toast the sweet potato slices again and again and again – in the toaster! That would send me round the bend. I love how sweet potato caramelises in the oven. And besides, it is easier doing them that way!

Because I am encouraging you to enjoy this meal amid some times of pretty rich food I should tell you its benefits. Think of all the Omega 3 oils benefiting your brain and heart from the avocado. Then there is the vitamin A and fibre of the sweet potato. And don’t forget the calcium in the feta cheese or onion. So much goodness yet you feel satisfied instantly from eating this that you don’t go looking for more.

So for the perfect lunch or light dinner amid all the feasting try deliciously smooth and savoury Avocado on Sweet Potato ‘Toast’.
