Baked sweet potato with avocado and tomato salsa

Hi lovelies! I’ve been extra busy in the past week but I thought I’d share this yummy recipe with you. Hope you enjoy!

What you need

  • One sweet potato (or two, or how many the heck you want)
  • One ripe avocado
  • Two tomatoes
  • Spring onions
  • Salsa
  • Parsley
  • Olive oil
  • Nutritional yeast

What to do

  1. Slice the potato(s) length-wise and stab it with a fork. This will make it cook faster.
  2. If you’re vegan, surely you know how to bake a sweet potato. What else do you live on?? Just kidding. Put the potato in the oven at 200°C for about 45 minutes. When it’s ready it will make bubbles, but you can always poke it with a fork from time to time to check if it’s turning soft.
  3. While you wait, finely chop the spring onions and heat them up in a pan with some olive oil.
  4. Wash the tomatoes and finely chop them as well, removing the seeds (you can leave the seeds if you want, I just find they make the salsa too moist).
  5. Set the chopped tomatoes aside in a bowl and add the salsa, parsley, olive oil, and the spring onions that should be all nice and ready by now.
  6. Get your avocado, peel it and mash it with a fork. You should end up with some sort of puree.
  7. Add some nutritional yeast (duh) and black pepper.
  8. When the sweet potato is ready, take it out of the oven and made the cut a bit wider. Pour a layer of tomato salsa on it and top it up with the avocado.

This is what it should look like:

Intro

Hi all! My name is Giulka and I’m starting off a new blog adventure on the many things I’m passionate about and want to share with the world wide web.
I’m not a fan of labels, but for the sake of clarity and to help you guys decide whether you might want to give me a thumbs-up, here’s a few things about meself:

  1. I do my best to be a vegan. I follow a plant-based diet and I avoid animal products in all forms as much as I can. I know I’m not  100% vegan-perfect but I’m aiming to be.
  2. I am a happy humanist and a proud atheist. Religion doesn’t make any sense to me and I believe you can be good to yourself and others without a holy book telling you to.
  3. I am originally from Italy, currently living in London and moving to New Zealand in June (!!!)
  4. I work in a publishing company where I make cute fluffy children’s books.
  5. I like reading and travelling on top of everything else and my life dream is to find a job that pays me for doing these two things.

I’m aiming to be posting once a week and I want to make this blog as professional as I can. Among other things, this is what you will find:

  1. Veganism, vegan recipes, food-related yumminess in general
  2. Humanism/skepticism/why you should question everything and think with your own head
  3. Travelling adventures!
  4. Monthly favourites
  5. Books reviews
  6. Lists (in case you didn’t notice, I love lists)

I hope you all enjoy! Here are other places you can find me:
