to make - sweet potato bowl
The recipes from Sakara always have me drooling over my screen!!
Sakara is this healthy, aryuvedic inspired, plantbased, clean eats,... food delivery project from two gorgeous girls in NYC; Danielle and Whitney (check their blog here)
Of course, as always, all good things are in NYC!
So... I try my to pretend I am there by recreating these dishes at home! And enjoying my Sakara delivery..
Soooo as I have no idea how this should taste,
but the combination and idea really triggered me...
I have to give this a try!
Sweet Potato Bowl
recipe: inspired by Sakara
recipe type: to breakfast, to snack, glutenfree, vegan(when omitting the beepollen, to raw (pretty sure you can make this raw although you might need to add sweeterer then!) , lactosefree, plantbased
what you need:
a sweet potato or two, depending on the size
almond milk, not to much, these needs to stay a thick pudding
vanilla extract, a few drops
maple syrup (optional)
cinnamon a pinch
cacao nibs, as a topping
goji berries, as a topping
bee pollen, as a toppig
slivered almonds (from activated almonds)
what to do:
Peel sweet potatoes and bake in an oven at 375 degrees or at 185 C until fork tender.
Take out of oven and let cool.
For the fast way: microwave the sweet potato for 8 min - quickest way, but I am not pro-microwave at all!!
Scoop out the sweet potato's flesh and place in a blender along with the almond milk, the vanilla extract, cinnamon and maple syrup ( I find the sweet potato already sweet enough, so no maple syrup for me...)
Keep adding almond milk until you get the consistency you want. Remember this needs to stay like a pudding.
Layer the pudding with blueberries, cacao nibs, slivered almonds, bee pollen (omit when making a vegan version), goji berries.
You could also add a scoop of nut butter to the mix!
you could bake some sweet potatoes in advance and store the 'meat' in a jar in the fridge.
a raw version? I am pretty sure this woud work!
Take a sweet potato, add to a high speed blender,.. you might want to add a sweetener, stevia, maple syryp, maca powder or lucuma powder... As the sweet potato did't caramelize in the oven.
