Sweet potatoes are so delicious and are packed with nutrients! I’m sure you’ve heard about their many benefits. Looking for more ways to include sweet potatoes in your diet? These 5 high-protein options are some easy ideas to get started with and will keep you full for hours!
Let’s get started:
Choose sweet potatoes that are heavy for their sizes and don’t have blemishes or mould on them. I’ve used American and Japanese sweet potatoes which are high in antioxidants and are generally healthier than than the normal sweet potatoes.
- 2 large sweets potatoes
Wash, peel and slice them vertically into 1/4″ thick slices. Drizzle a few drops of olive oil on the potatoes. Next, you can either toast or roast them for 10-15 minutes 220ºC. If you are toasting, toast on high heat twice or you can roast until they are tender and slightly browned.
First toast: Hummus, Avocado and Hemp seeds toast:
Slather your favorite hummus on TOP of the toast, boost the protein even more by sprinkling hemp seeds then add a few slices of avocado (drizzled with lemon juice, salt and pepper.
Chocolate Peanut butter with Blueberries:
Mix peanut butter with chocolate powder and some milk to make it smooth protein packed spread. Top with some fresh or frozen blueberries or any berries as per your choice.
Pesto with grilled chicken and sun-dried tomatoes:
Slather store bought pesto or home made pesto on your sweet potato toast then top it with some sautéed or grilled chicken and sun-dried tomato.
Guacamole with roasted Tandoori Chickpeas:
Top your sweet potato toast with guacamole and roasted tandoori chickpeas. Take some canned chickpeas seasoned with paprika and tandoori masala with little olive oil and bake it for 15-20 mins until they turn crispy! For the Guacamole, just mash avocado and mix with salt, pepper, lime juice and some chopped jalapeños, spring onion and coriander leaves. Isn’t it easy and healthy?
Lastly, the Pesto+Hummus+Raddish+Chia seeds toast
Mix pesto with hummus and top your sweet potato with thin slices of radish and Chia seeds to make it more crunchy and protein packed toast.
