Puffed sweet potato boats


2013 has been all about puffed sweet potatoes;-) I've just found the puffed version out very recently (I guess about 2 or 3 months ago) and they are seriously one of my favourites ever. I love them because you can truly taste their natural sweetness when you prepare them in an oven. You can also make a variety of different sweet potato dishes....Oh men...there is so much more..

A couple of weeks ago I made this delicious sweet potato boats with a fresh homemade guacamole dip and some healthy nuts & seeds. They were seriously again, very delicious;-). What do you need for this easy bake sweet potato boats?

* serves 2
* 60 minutes oven time, depending on the size of the sweet potatoes

* 5 minutes prep time

- 2 sweet potatoes (size of choice, sweet potatoes can be making you easily full, the bigger the potato, the longer the prepping time in the oven)
- 1 ripe avocado

- 1 tomato, diced
- 1 tspn garlic powder
- 2 tblsp fresh lemon juice

- a pinch of salt
- a pinch of red chilli pepper
- an handful of walnuts
- an handful of almonds
- an handful of pumpkinseeds
- tortilla chips

Heat the oven on 200 degrees and wash the sweet potatoes. Cover them in a thinfoil and prepare them for about 60 minutes in the oven, depending on the size of the potato. They are ready when you can easily put a skewer or a fork in it and trough the whole potato. Mash the avocado and mix it well with the lemon juice, tomato, garlic powder, chili and salt. Slice the sweet potatoes when finished in half and serve the guacamole on top of them. Put the nuts and seeds over the guacamole and some tortilla chips and enjoy your dinner!
