Vegetarian Sweet Potato SLIDERS

Okay. I’m going to keep this short and sweet (potato). All this recipe requires is cutting, stacking, skewing, baking, and freakin’ EATING. Get ready for this. 

External image


-Sweet Potatoes (the thicker, the better)

-Spinach     -Basil      -Tomato         -Onion        -Tofu      

-Shredded or block cheese, sliced (your option)

-Wooden Skewers


     1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.

     2. Cut sweet potatoes a half inch thick, so that you end up with round pieces as the “bread” for the sliders. You will need an even amount so that each slider has a top and bottom. 

     3. Begin stacking the ingredients above (or WHATEVER you want) on top of the bottom sweet potato slice. I did sweet potato, cheese, spinach, tomato, basil, onion, tofu, more cheese, and then sweet potato. 

     4. Puncture these furious looking sliders with a wooden skewer. 

     5. Place them on a baking sheet, and throw them into the oven for 30 minutes, or until the sweet potato on top is baked through. (use a toothpick to test this)

     6. You better share these with all your friends. You better. 

I hope you guys enjoy these EPIC sliders. Really easy, low-calorie, vegetarian, and ultra fun.

Zucchini Pasta with Avocado Cream Sauce

Ingredients : 

  • 10 zucchinis
  • 1 small package cherry tomatoes
  • 3 avocados 
  • ½ a lemon (juiced) 
  • ¼ cup almond milk or other milk
  • 1-2 tablespoon garlic powder (to taste)
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Basil (I used 6 leaves)
  • Red pepper flakes (I used 2 teaspoons)

Procedure : 

  • Roast the tomatoes at 350 for about 30 minutes. I sprinkled them with salt, pepper and powdered garlic.
  • Spiral the zucchinis into “noodles”. I use this lovely little contraption, but I know there are fancier ones out there. 
  • I sauteed them for about 10 minutes to make them soft & hot, but I like them a bit al dente. Just cook it to your liking. 
  • In a food processor (or you could maybe use an immersion blender) throw the avocados, the lemon juice, the basil, the garlic, 1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes, some salt and pepper, the almond milk and blend till really smooth. I heated it up in the microwave for a minute to make it warm. 
  • Top the zucchini noodles with the sauce & roasted tomatoes! Sprinkle with the extra red pepper flakes, some extra salt and pepper (and maybe a bit of parmesan!)
