Printable Recipe

yield: two servings

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • olive oil cooking spray
  • Kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 ripe large avocado
  • 2 oz goat cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 Tbsp freshly squeezed lime or lemon juice
  • water to thin crema, as needed

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Scrub and dry sweet potatoes. Pierce potatoes a few times with a knife or fork. Lightly coat with olive oil cooking spray and season to taste with salt and pepper. Place seasoned potatoes onto a foil-lined baking sheet and bake until soft, about 45-60 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, combine avocado, goat cheese, and citrus juice in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until smooth and creamy, streaming in water (1 tablespoon at a time) until desired consistency is reached (I used just 1 tbsp). Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. When the potatoes are done, slice them lengthwise and top with avocado & goat cheese crema.
