I came up with this recipe while trying to create a healthy, satisfying and exciting lunch that I could prepare at work from ingredients at the local corner market near my office. Since discovering it, this has been my work lunch about 1,000 times. It meets all of these criteria, with a bonus offering of providing for 2 days, not one.
Squeaky Clean Loaded Sweet Potato
best quality: can be prepared in under 10 minutes using only a microwave and a butter knife
1/2 ripe avocado sliced or cubed
1 medium or 1/2 large sweet potato
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
salt and pepper to taste
a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil
Cook the sweet potato. Oven-baked is the best but to speed things up I usually pop mine in the microwave for 5-6 minutes. Make sure to stab it with a knife or fork a few times on each side before putting it in the microwave.
Once the sweet potato has cooled slightly, slice it open lengthwise, drizzle a little olive oil on each half, and mash the insides with a fork.
Top it with your avocado, greek yogurt and salt and pepper. I like to add a dash of hot sauce too. You can use the other half of your avocado and large sweet potato for lunch tomorrow, just make sure to wrap them tightly and refrigerate If you buy a single serving yogurt container, it can be split into two servings as well. Enjoy!

Looks good enough to eat. I am always looking for an easy good lunch. MM
Holy clean eating! I’ve been eating my sweet potatoes with cinnamon and stevia…there is a limit to how many sweet potatoes a guy could eat with only cinnamon and stevia. I’m definitely going to spice up my sweet taters. I bet some sauteed onions would be good on these! Thanks for the foodspiration!
onions would probably be fabulous! thanks for the suggestion. I think i will have to try the cinnamon and stevia too.
Mmm good idea. I am also a daily sweet potato eater and I could spice it up a bit.
