Who doesn’t love guacamole? Lunch, snacks, parties, guacamole is the shining star at any occasion. I love to add hemp hearts to guacamole because they are nutty and pair great with avocado, and also because they add a superfood punch of complete protein and minerals. The best part is they look like sprinkles! Now you don’t just have a star, you have a super star!
Since there is a healthy theme going, you wouldn’t want to ruin it with fatty and high sodium corn chips. No, what you want to make is naturally flavorful, sodium and saturated fat free sweet potato chips! Packed with vitamin A and loads of lovely fiber, these are my absolute favorite to eat with guacamole.
Vibrant, colorful, and a little out of the ordinary, this meal or snack is sure to be a favorite.
- 2 large sweet potato
- 1 ripe avocado
- 1 small garlic clove, minced
- 1 tsbp thinly sliced green onion
- 2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro (save some for topping)
- ¼ cup chopped tomato
- red pepper flakes
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- ½ lime, juiced
- 2 tbsp hemp hearts, divided
- Preheat your oven to 375.
- Wash the sweet potatoes but leave the skin on.
- Using a large knife, thinly slice the potatoes into rounds, about ¼ inch think.
- Spread the potatoes out evenly on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Place them in the oven to bake for 15 minutes on one side, then flip and bake another 15. Check them periodically, more time may be needed.
- While the potatoes are baking, slice the avocado in half and scoop the inside into a small mixing bowl.
- Squeeze the lime juice into the bowl, and using a fork, mash and mix it with the avocado until it starts to get creamy.
- Mince the garlic and chop the other veggies. Add them to the bowl.
- Add in a few sprinkles of red pepper or leave out if you don’t want it spicy. Add the in salt as well as 1 tbsp of the hemp hearts. Mix everything together.
- Sprinkle the rest of the hemp hearts and cilantro on top and the guacamole is ready.
- Check the potatoes. They should be browning on the edges, getting bubbly and crispy, but you don’t want them to get too burnt. Once they look right remove them from the oven and serve with the superguac!
