Sweet Potato Toast With Guacamole

Serves 2

Ingredients:

  • 1 large sweet potato (purple or orange)
  • 1 heaping tablespoon of grass-fed ghee, melted
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cajun spice mix

Guacamole

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp Brain Octane Oil
  • 1/2 clove of garlic, crushed*
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Optional garnishes; chopped chili,* lemon zest, a sprinkle of turmeric and/ or fresh herbs

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 390F.
  2. Slice the sweet potato into rounds so they’re roughly ¼ inch thick (or use a mandolin slicer for ease) and place them out onto 2 baking trays evenly. (Tip; slice them thinner if you want them to cook faster).
  3. Spread the ghee out evenly onto the sweet potato rounds using a pastry brush. Do this on both sides.
  4. Now sprinkle the salt and spices over the top of the sweet potatoes.
  5. Place both trays into the oven and roast for 35-45 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy. It may take less or a little longer depending on your oven, just be sure to keep an eye on them.
  6. While they’re cooking, simply mash all the guacamole ingredients together into a bowl using a fork.
  7. When the sweet potato chips are ready, serve them with the guacamole and any garnishes you like. Enjoy.

Notes on ingredients: Garlic is in the suspect category of the Bulletproof Diet, because it inhibits alpha brain waves and could affect your mood – and depending on where you get it, could be moldy. For that reason, it’s not recommended that you eat garlic often. Peppers are in the nightshade family and may cause inflammation in sensitive people.

Notes on cooking method: If you cook in the green-to green-yellow area of the Bulletproof roadmap most of the time, you can enjoy some foods cooked in the caution zone every now and then.
