Who said fast food is only about unhealthy burgers, takeout and food choices full of trans fat and toxins? Even if that’s its broad concept, we’ve taken it to another dimension, a healthy, plant-based, vegan dimension that can be healthy, nutritious, good for gut microbome, immune-supporting and at the same time delicious!
This is what’s happening with this recipe, which is vegan gluten-free and filled with nutrients, vitamins, fiber, antioxidants, minerals… More specifically, sweet potatoes are full of Vitamin A, good for vision and immune system, Vitamin C which also supports the immune system, Vitamins B that are good for brain and nervous system and at the same time they’re prebiotic foods that benefit gut microbiome. Spinach has anti-cancer properties, it’s heart-friendly and it’s full of antioxidants, providing us with Vitamin A, Vitamin K, folic acid, magnesium, iron and manganese, while tofu is protein-rich, full of calcium and iron for power, energy and healthy bones. Avocado also is important here with its healthy fat, but besides all the nutrients, you’ll realize that this recipe is so delicious, you’ll want to make it all the time, since it’s a healthy… fast food.
1 medium-seized sweet potato
6-8 organic cherry tomatoes
1 big yellow pepper
A pinch of sweet paprika
2 tbsp extra virgin olive-oil
2 cups of spinach
80gr tofu (even better basil tofu)
Some lemon juice
Peel and cut your sweet potato is medium pieces (if you want to leave some skin on for extra vitamins and fibre, you must choose organic and clean it well). Put it in parchment paper in the oven and drizzle with 1 tbsp olive oil and some sweet paprika. Cook in 280°C for about 20 minutes.
After you’ve washed and cleaned your spinach, toss it on a plate as a base. Then peel and cut your avocado in wedges or cubes and pour some lemon juice. Cut your pepper and add it along with the cherry tomatoes and tofu, which you must first cut in cubes.
Finally, add your roasted sweet potato, add olive oil, some salt and enjoy!
Basil tofu can add extra aroma in your dish, but if you cant’ find it, you can add some basil yourself, which is rich in vitamin A, while it provides us also with Vitamin C, iron, calcium and magnesium.
