Bean Sweet Potato Avocado Salad [ dill hummus dressing ]

This Bean Sweet Potato Avocado Salad is a great source of nutrients, flavor and fiber. The combination of the sweet potato with the dill hummus dressing is delicious. The dressing is oil free, dill and lemon just go so well together. The beans add plant based protein and avocado is here for creaminess.

These white fleshed purple skinned sweet potatoes are my favorite. They have a different texture than the orange ones, seem less starchy, I don’t know, I just love them. I usually bake them whole but for this salad slices made more sense. When using this pba free silicone baking sheet I don’t need to use additional oil to give them a nice golden color.

When I have the oven on I always throw in some garlic. Baked garlic is sweet and easy on the digestion. Delicious in dressings and in salads. The inside turns soft and creamy.

Salads are one of the easiest meals to prepare, especially when you prepped some ingredients like the baked potatoes, the beans and the hummus up front. I like to wash my vegetables and greens all at once, dry it well and keep them in the fridge until ready to use. This makes the healthy eating life so much easier.

The dressing is a thinned out hummus with added dill and lemon juice. I like plenty of dressing on my salad, the reason why I make them healthy and ow in oil and therefor also in empty calories. Hummus is such a versatile dip and spread made of healthy chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice and the version I like has miso or sometimes mustard in it.
