This dish is hearty, aromatic, delicious and good for you! Parsley is rich in vitamins, low in calories and it's strong herbal flavor and stiff texture is a perfect match for slow baked sweet potatoes, which are almost caramelized when they come out of the oven. Plus, you can make this dish early, cover and chill to serve at any time of the day! Enjoy! —Sarah Jo Jolly
What You'll Need
Medium-Large Sweet Potatoes
Parsley (finely chopped)
Kale (finely chopped)
Medium Granny Smith Apple (julienne)
Raw Pumpkin Seeds, aka Pepitas (coarsely chopped)
Raw Sunflower Seeds
Lemon Juice (fresh squeeze 1/2 lemon)
Medium Avocado (smashed until smooth)
Pre-heat oven to 425.
Thoroughly wash and dry sweet potatoes. Poke all over with a fork. Place on foiled cookie sheet and bake for 30mins. Turn over and cook another 20-30 mins depending on size of potato.
In a large mixing bowl combine all other ingredients.
Wash hands and massage all ingredients together. Massaging vs. tossing the slaw will soften the kale and release the herbal aroma of the parsley.
Remove sweet potatoes from oven, slice vertically down the center and let cool.
Scoop parsley slaw into the middle of each potato and serve at room temperature. (Or cover and chill to serve cold.)
Garnish with a sprinkle of raw sunflower seeds on top. ENJOY!
