Healthy eating: Sweetpotato-Eggplant-Tomato-Turrets with Express-Guacamole

After work I am not in the mood for cooking. Quick * Easy * Delicious * Healthy! That is how my recipes have to be. Here I have one for you with fulfills all of them.

Sweetpotato-Eggplant-Tomato-Turrets

You need:

  • 1 Sweetpotato
  • 1 Eggplant
  • 1 Tomato
  • Olive oil
  • Spices (Salt, pepper, paprika, chili,… whatever you like)

Cut the Sweetpotato, the eggplant and te tomato in slices about 0,5 cm. First fry the potato slices in a pan with olive oil from both sides until they’re done. After that continue with the egplant-slices. Put some more oil in the pan because they will suck it up. In the meantime you can spice the swettpotatos and the tomatos. I use salt, pepper, a little bit of paprika and chili. The eggplants should be done now. Finally build turrets – each with one potato-, eggplant- and tomatoslice. Finished!!!

Superfast Express-Guacamole

You need:

  • 1 ripe Avocado
  • a little bit of Lemonjuice
  • 1 garlic clove
  • Spices

Scrape out the avocado with a spoon and drizzle some lemon juice on it. Either chop or press the garlic clove and give it with the spices – here I take again salt, pepper, a little paprika and chili – to the avocado. Mash everything with a fork in the rhythm of this song 🙂 and hand it to the turrets.

Super easy and super delicious.
