Sweet potatoes



  • Orange bell pepper sliced
  • Fresh mozzarella cheese sliced
  • Pesto
  • Fresh basil chopped
  • Unsalted pecans chopped
  • Black Pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Coat both sides of sweet potato slices with avocado oil; arrange on sheet pan. Lightly sprinkle each with coconut sugar. Bake 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in food processor or heavy-duty blender, combine pesto ingredients. Blend until completely smooth, stopping to scrape down sides a few times.
  4. Top each sweet potato slice with desired toppings. Return to oven; continue cooking 8 to 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

  • For a vegan-friendly version, omit or substitute cheese.
  • The pesto makes 24 servings (about 3 cups). Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 5 days and in the freezer for up to 3 months. It’s excellent on pasta, with chicken or in sandwiches.
  • Other suitable toppings include olives, red bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, tomatoes and other kinds of cheeses.
