Ditch the toast

Ohh Hello fellow avocado lover!

A few years ago, avocado toast took the number #1 place on most of the brunch menus and firmly staying there since. I’m one of those ones as well whenever I go out to eat the first thing I look at on the menu “ do they have any avocado on toast.” 

But a few weeks ago when I went out with one of my friends to check out a restaurant where avocado was one of the ingredients in every dish, and they had a classic avocado toast, but instead of bread, they served on a sweet potato. My other big-time favorite.

( the reason whyI’m not going to tell you the name of the place because the portion size was a bit disappointing and was really really overpriced )

So I started to think about how can I make this simple dish even more delicious. How does everyone make smashed avocado better? Let’s make guacamole!

I like my guac smooth not chunky, but this is just personal preference, so the way I did it is using a food processor. You could do with just smashing the ingredients if you prepared you one with more significant bits in it.   

  • 1 avocado
  • 0.25 tbsp of olive oil 
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 0.25 tbsp lime juice
  • Salt 
  • Pepper
  • Chili flakes
  • 0.5 garlic

Bake the sweet potato until it becomes soft. For the topping, I used toasted pine nuts and vegan sour cream.

  • 1 cup cashew nuts
  • 0.5 cup of water
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 0,25 tsp sea salt

Soak cashews into boiling water for 15 minutes then add all the ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend it until it becomes a thick creamy consistency.
