My favorite quick-and-easy go-to lunch! So delicious, also makes the perfect side dish! I have never actually measured any of the ingredients, I just make it the way I like it. This is a really simple recipe where you can just add the ingredients to taste. I’m a busy mom and this is something quick I usually make for my lunch everyday. You could also serve this as a tasty side dish.

  • 1 sweet potato, diced
  • 1 avocado, peeled and diced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt-free seasoning blend (such as Mrs. Dash®)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon grated Parmesan cheese

Chef's Notes

You could boil the sweet potatoes instead if you wanted. I prefer to leave the skin on, but you could certainly peel the sweet potato before cooking if you like.


  1. It didn't sound like it would be good at first, but it's way better than I expected. No changes necessary
  2. I'm a guy. I had 3 sweet potatoes (that I cooked the day be4) and 2 avacados. I just cubed the sweet potato, shelled the avacado & cubed it, put it in a bowl & ate...didn't add anything. That was lunch. For dinner I did the same thing, but this time I put into a - Read more ...
  3. I made as is and I was okay. I would add some celery or nuts to give it some crunch, and a few more seasonings next time.
  4. Pretty good! I added chopped almonds and craisins for more texture and flavor. Agree with the others who say to cut the garlic input. Or maybe use garlic salt instead of garlic powder.
  5. This is quick and easy and the combination of flavors is surprisingly nice. The warm potato plus the cool avocado is great. It's really quick and simple and great for someone who is trying to eat healthy and gain weight after surgery. This meal also fits a few specialized prescribed diets with its simple ingredients.
  6. I put a twist on it adding sweetcorn and finely chopped slices of raw carrot switched olive oil to walnut oil and some lime to finish. Great end result felt the base recipe needed a little kick:) thanks for the idea!
  7. I agree that it is a bit heavy on the garlic powder. I think a 1/2 teaspoon would work wonderfully! Great lunch recipe though! I'll be doing this again and again.
  8. I followed the recipe as written and found it to be very garlic heavy. I consider myself a garlic lover but this was too much for me. However I did enjoy this recipe overall and it made a healthy and filling lunch. The warm sweet potato melted the avocado a bit and turned some of - Read more ...
