Avocado Toast is all the rage and tomatillos are in season, so let’s “fix ‘em up” and see how beautiful the flavors meld! We use sweet potato toast as a super nutritious and filling “toast” for the tart, creamy topping.

Avocado Tomatillo Sweet Potato Toast

Servings: Makes 12 pieces (serves 6)

For the Sweet Potato Toast

  • 1 (12-13 oz.) sweet potato, skin and diced to ¼“ pieces
  • 3 TB Coconut flour
  • 3 TB Arrowroot flour
  • 1 tsp. Dried oregano or marjoram
  • 1 tsp. Garlic powder

For the Avocado Tomatillo Guacamole

  • 2 large avocados, peeled, pitted, and diced to ½” pieces
  • 3 TB finely diced red bell pepper
  • 1 TB chopped scallions (light green parts)
  • 4 medium-size tomatillos, husked and diced to ¼” pieces
  • 1 medium-size garlic clove, peeled, smashed, and minced
  • 2 TB chopped cilantro, stems removed
  • ½ serrano pepper, seeded and minced (more if you like it super hot)
  • 1 TB lime juice, or more to taste, from 1 lime
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Just before serving: Pinch of salt (optional), or more to taste

Make the Sweet Potato Toast

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. In a double boiler, steam diced sweet potato until soft, about 10-15 minutes. The smaller the dice, the faster they steam!
  3. Remove from the steamer and place in a mixing bowl. With a potato masher or a fork, mash potatoes until completely smooth and creamy.
  4. In a small bowl, mix together all of the dry ingredients.
  5. Add to the smashed sweet potato, and combine thoroughly—works best with your hands.
  6. Place the dough on a piece of parchment paper, 12” x 8” big. Roll dough to ⅛” thickness about 7-½” x 6” rectangle.
  7. With a pizza cutter, score dough into 12 equal size pieces, 1-½” x 2-½” rectangular “toast” size pieces.
  8. Place the parchment paper directly on the grate in the preheated oven, and cook for 12-15 minutes until sweet potato looks dry and just starts to become golden.
  9. With tongs, remove parchment paper directly to sheet pan. Keep the oven turned on. Very carefully, with a knife, cut along the scoring marks to separate each toast piece. Turn over the cut pieces and place back in the oven, directly on the grates. Cook another 3 minutes. Remove and cool to room temperature.

Make the Avocado Tomatillo Guacamole

  2. Add more lime juice or ground black pepper, to taste.

To Serve
