Sweet Potato Rounds
  1. 2 small/thin sweet potatoes, sliced into thin rounds
  2. 2-3 tsp. olive oil
  3. salt
  4. black pepper
Avocado topping
  1. 1 avocado, cubed
  2. 2 Tbsp. red onion, minced
  3. 1/2 tsp. jalapeno or serrano chile, minced
  4. 1 tsp. cilantro, minced
  5. salt to taste
Garnish
  1. broccoli sprouts (or any sprouts you can find)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 450F. In a large bowl, toss sweet potato wedges with olive oil, and sprinkle with a touch of salt and pepper. Lay out flat on a baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes. The thinner they are cut, the crisper they will be. Thicker slices will be softer, and equally delicious.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare the topping by putting the avocado, red onion, jalapeno, and cilanro in a bowl. Use a fork to mash well. Season with salt to taste.
  3. When sweet potato rounds are done, plate them, then spoon a small dollop in the middle of each. Top with a few sprouts. (If sprouts are long, cut the bottom of them off so they fit on your sweet potato rounds.)
