Sweet Potato & Hummus Salad

Too many things in this salad to fit it into a bowl! I needed to use up leftover rice, so that was my base. It’s not something i usually put in a salad, but it worked really well. A great, filling salad!

On this plate:
sweet potato, diced and oven baked
red cabbage, thinly sliced
green soy beans
nectarines
hummus with looooots of tahini
cucumber
alfalfa sprouts
rock melon (hidden under the coriander)
baby spinach
capers
coriander
drizzle of vegan sriracha mayo

Asparagus & Sweet Potato Bowl

Hurry up and make this nourishing bowl before the asparagus season is over!

Peel sweet potato and dice in 2×2 cm cubes. Cook until just soft. Drain well.
Roll sweet potato in panko bread crumbs and fry in a pan with cooking oil until golden.
Break off the hard end bit on each asparagus stem. Finely chop two cloves of garlic. Quickly fry together on high heat for 1-2 minutes.
Serve in a bowl together with quartered strawberries, sliced avocado and basil leaves. Drizzle with vegan sriracha mayo.

Sweet Potato Pizza

Pizza without cow’s milk cheese takes a bit more creativity. Without melted cheese the pizza can be a bit dry. But not this one.

I topped my homemade pizza base with a thin layer of mashed sweet potato, some cashew parmesan, a drizzle of olive oil, basil leaves, salt and black pepper. 10 minutes in a hot oven, 275 degrees. Turned out really good, so I say you should give it a try!

Sweet Potato Quesadillas

A family favourite! Peel one or two sweet potatoes, cut in pieces and boil until soft. Drain and mash with a fork. Spread a layer of mash on one half of a tortilla, sprinkle with cashew parmesan and fold. Repeat until you run out of mash. Brush the tortillas lightly with some cooking oil. Fry on medium heat until golden on both sides. Cut in halves. Serve with guacamole and a tomato salad.

Maki Rolls

Rich sweet potato, creamy avocado, crunchy cucumber and spicy sriracha – the perfect combo in vegan maki rolls!

Ingredients
sushi rice, cooked
nori sheets
avocado
cucumber
sweet potato
vegan sriracha mayo
sesame seeds
Japanese soy
pickled ginger
wasabi

Peel the sweet potato and cut like thick chips/French fries. Bake on a tray in the oven, 200 degrees for about 15 minutes. Don’t bake them too long, they should be soft but firm and just starting to get som colour.
Cut avocado and cucumber the same way as the sweet potato.
Use a bamboo mat I you have one, it makes it a lot easier to roll, but it’s not a must. Put a nori sheet with the blank side down on the mat or the table. Cover half of the sheet with sushi rice.
Put sweet potato in a line on the rice near the edge of the sheet. Add a line of avocado and cucumber, and a line of sriracha mayo. Carefully roll the nori sheet, making sure that you start with the vegetable side to get it in the centre of the roll. Squeeze tight.
Cut in 2 cm thick slices, using a very sharp knife. Plate and drizzle with sriracha mayo and sesame seeds. Serve with soy, ginger and wasabi.

Sweet Potato Bowl with Peanut Tahini Sauce

Here’s a great bowl with sweet potatoes, marinated green lentils and nectarines. I improvised a sauce with tahini and peanut butter, and it was absolutely fab! Already a new favourite.

Ingredients
whole bulghur, cooked in vegetable stock
sweet potato
panko
green lentils
olive oil
lemon juice
garlic
basil
pickled carrots and red onions
baby corn
nectarines or peaches
edamame beans
vegan sriracha mayo

Peanut Tahini Sauce
1 tbsp crunchy peanut butter
1 tbsp tahini
0,5 tsp brown sugar
2 tbsp water or almond milk
a squeeze of lemon juice
a pinch of salt

Peel and dice the sweet potatoes, cubes of 1×1 cm is a good size. Cook until fork tender. Drain well.
In a small bowl, mix lemon juice, olive oil, finely chopped garlic and a pinch of salt. Add the green lentils (pre-cooked), chop a few leaves of basil and leave to marinate until the rest of the food is ready to serve.
Slice the necatrines and cook the edamame beans.
Roll the sweet potato cubes in panko and fry in cooking oil on high heat.
Stir the ingredients for the tahini sauce together and add more water or almond milk for a thinner sauce.
Put bulgur in the bottom of a bowl and top with all other ingredients. Finish off with a spoonful of peanut tahini dressing and drizzle sriracha mayo on top.
