  • 1 medium sweet potato, washed and sliced lengthwise into ¼- slices
  • 1 ripe avocado, pitted and peeled
  • Juice of ½ to 1 lime, to taste
  • Sea salt
  • cup pomegranate seeds
  • ¼ cup crushed toasted hazelnuts or shelled hemp seeds (optional)


  • Toast the sweet potato slices in a toaster* for 5 to 10 minutes, or until cooked through and firm-tender. You may need to toast multiple times depending on the toasting length for your toaster.
  • While the sweet potato slices toast, add the avocado to a small bowl and use the back of a fork to mash it to desired consistency. Add the lime juice and sea salt, to taste, and gently mash again to incorporate.
  • Slather each sweet potato toast with the mashed avocado. Top with the pomegranate seeds and hazelnuts or hemp seeds (if using). Season with a pinch of sea salt, if desired, and serve immediately.


*Depending on the strength and reliability of your toaster, you may want to opt for roasting in the oven. It takes a little longer but yields the most consistent toast/roast! If you opt for this method, preheat the oven to 375F and line a baking tray with parchment paper. Spread the sweet potato slices into a single layer in the pan and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until tender.
