Servings 1


  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 1 large sweet potato baked
  • 1 cup canned beans of choice rinsed
  • 1/2 cup broccoli steamed
  • 1/2 large avocado or 1 small avocado
  • Optional toppings: salsa nutritional yeast, hot sauce


  • Use a knife to make a couple of slits in the sweet potato and bake at 400 degrees F (204 degrees C) for 40-60 minutes until sweet potato is soft. I like mine extra sweet and oozy, so I cooked mine for 60 minutes. During the last few minutes, steam broccoli in a rice cooker or by microwaving for 3 minutes with a little bit of water in a container with a loose fitting lid. Warm beans in the microwave as well.
  • Cut sweet potato in half and place over the baby spinach. Top with beans, salsa, and condiments of choice. Add sliced avocado and steamed broccoli.
