A well-balanced, healthy veggie meal that tastes great and takes around half an hour to make? You know you're onto a winner with this dish. Combining sweet potato with chickpeas gives the perfect balance of complex carbs and plant-based protein. Plus, by adding a pile of smashed avocado, you’ve got a quality fat source, too.


  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled
  • 1 can of chickpeas
  • 1.5 tbsp of tahini
  • 1 tbsp of Cajun spice mix
  • Handful of fresh coriander
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • A squeeze of fresh lime


  1. Start by steaming the sweet potatoes for around 10 minutes, or until soft and completely mashable. Whilst this is happening, place the chickpeas, tahini and Cajun spice into a food processor and blend until smooth. You can then combine this mix with the sweet potatoes once cooked and mash everything together until smooth. Add the fresh coriander and season generously with salt and pepper.
  2. Make patties in your hands and place into a hot pan with a little olive oil, allow to brown on each side before placing into the oven (on around 180°C) for a final 10 minutes. Once cooked, assemble on a bed of salad leaves, stacked up on top of each other with the smashed avocado on top. Squeeze over a touch of lime juice for a light, zesty finish. Perfect food for summer entertaining
