Ingredients

For the dish

  • 4 medium sweet potatoes
  • 2 bunches broccolini
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 small fresh goat cheese (4 hefty TBSP worth)

For the Pesto

  • 1 cup leafy greens of your choice (watercress, spinach or kale)
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 chives
  • 1 small shallot
  • black pepper

Method

Preparing the dish

1

Bake the sweet potatoes with their skin on until soft (about 50 minutes)

2

Saute the broccolini with a little olive oil (or steam them) and slice the avocado.

3

In a blender, mix the pesto ingredients and reserve in the fridge.

4

When the sweet potatoes are ready, cut them open and fill each with 1 TBSP goat cheese, 1/4 avocado sliced, the broccolini on top and some pesto.

This dish is so flavorful that salt is not necessary.
I like to serve it with a side of lettuce.
