If you need lunch options or finger food, we are on top of it! We are making baked sweet potato rounds with yogurt and herbs today. An incredibly delicious plant-based recipe and possibly one of the easiest dishes you could ever make.
I have a slight obsession with baked sweet potatoes. This is one of the easiest ways to cook this tasty veggie and reap all its benefits. I love that I can just throw them in the oven and check on them every once in a while just to make sure I'm not burning anything.
For this beautiful and easy recipe, we need sweet potatoes rounds which we'll toss in olive oil. Once they've been in the oven for a good 15-20 minutes, we will have these perfectly cooked rounds which will serve as a vessel for the other elements in this recipe.
I made some roasted chickpeas with cajun spice to add a bit of a crunch and substance. I also wanted the option to have this as a meal not just something to pick on. So the chickpeas will add a good amount of plant based-protein to this dish.
Last but not least, we are making a creamy yogurt with herbs. This is where the magic happens! And even though, we have other elements that are full of flavour and goodness on their very own, this plant-based yogurt sauce is what will bring everything together.
The recipe is simple but the taste is incredible. I mixed a handful of frozen garden herbs with soy yogurt and a pinch of salt. This plant-based sauce can be either drizzled over the baked sweet potato and the chickpeas or you can serve it in a bowl and dip away.
The beauty of the sauce is that you can make it whit whatever herbs you have handy. This makes it super easy and versatile as well. You can get many different sauces just by changing it up or by using what you already have in your kitchen.
The last time I made this recipe I mainly used parsley. This here is incredible, you can easily find it and it holds a good load of health benefits for you. It does have a strong taste, and to be honest, I wasn't a huge fan. But knowing how to use it and knowing all the health benefits it has, I have started to incorporate it a bit more in my recipes.
I won't list all the many benefits that parsley brings to our diet. But, let me give you some examples. Parsley is a big source of protective vitamins and flavonoid antioxidants. It acts as a natural diuretic and helps relieve bloating. Your digestion and kidney health can improve by consuming this herb. It has a load of vitamins and minerals, helps balance hormones. The list is soooo long!
But you get the gist. It's a great addition to your diet and a super easy and practical way to enhance the taste of your dishes. And these incredibly delicious baked sweet potatoes are proof of it!
