Boy, do I love sweet potatoes. I started eating them when I learned of their nutritional value a couple of years ago. Since then, I’ve been hooked. I can eat them everyday. There are so many ways to enjoy them. Roasted, baked, mashed and more.
Here is another Beauty Detox Recipe from the lovely Kimberly Snyder. I took her recipe and added my own twist. Here’s her recipe
2 large or 3 smaller sweet potatoes
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
2/3 cup ripe avocado
1 minced garlic clove
1/3 cup diced celery (or cucumber, if you’ve run out of celery, like me today!)
2 Tbs. minced purple onion
2 Tbs. nutritional yeast
2 tsp. olive oil
High quality sea salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Now here’s my version:
I used both sweet potatoes and a couple of red ones I had leftover.
My husband said he wanted to make guacamole which inspired me to use the guacamole as my base instead of using Dijon mustard and avocado. I wish I got a picture. My husband has become a guacamole master 🙂
Instead of steaming the potatoes, I decided to roast them. Once they were done roasting, I mixed them with guacamole and my sweet potato salad was born.
So here’s the ingredients I used:
5 sweet and 3 red potatoes
1/4 red onion
salt and pepper to taste
I roasted potatoes for 45 min at 400 degrees. Once cooled, I mixed them with the guacamole. My picture isn’t quite as pretty as Kimberly’s but it was tasty.
I hope you enjoy.
