These are amazing slow roast sweet potato jackets with a sensational smashed chickpea topping!!
It’s so easy and delicious, like me, if your vegan or flexitarian or simply wanting to try more plant based food then this is a delicious meal to try.
-1 tin pre cooked chickpeas.
-4 tbsp of Mayo/ or yogurt.
-Squeeze of lemon.
-1/2 tsp of paprika, salt and pepper.
-Add some fresh chives, parsley optional spinach.
-Drain the can of chickpeas and mash with a fork and place in a bowl.
-Finally chop 2 gherkins 2 radishes the seasoning.
-Add the fresh herbs, lemon and choice of dressing. I used vegan mayonnaise. Keep in the fridge until the potato is ready. You can make this in advance and it will keep in the fridge for 2 days, in an air tight container.
This takes 10 minutes prep and serves for 2-3.
For the roast sweet potato:
– Wash the potato and scrub well. Chop the ends and prick with fork.
-I use the microwave for 5 minutes cooking time.
-Place on a piece of foil, drizzle olive oil an add a pinch of salt and pepper and smoked paprika. Wrap well and cook in the oven for 30 – 40 mins until soft.
-Cut in half season with salt and pepper. Scoop some of the smashed potatoes and garnish with radish, spring onion and cherry tomatoes.
