Smoky Sweet Potatoes and Avocado with Cauliflower Rice

I have been wanting to try out cauliflower rice for a long time.  For some reason, I thought it would be hard to make.  Boy was I wrong!  Making cauliflower rice is super easy. I first learned how to make it from Tasty Yummies.  She has a step by step tutorial.  This smoky sweet potatoes and avocado with rice is delicious and very filling for a grain free dish!  I have been venturing into grain free meals lately.  I already have a zucchini pasta with avocado pesto and a spaghetti squash with pesto on the blog.  I will be making this recipe again in the near future!

Sweet Potato Black Bean Burgers

I love veggie burgers.  Who doesn’t right?  Well store bought veggie burgers don’t cut it for me.  The rubbery texture and unidentifiable ingredients in store bought veggie burgers are enough to turn me off.  You can get so much more flavor and texture from homemade veggie burgers.  These sweet potato black bean burgers are a spin off my Sweet Potato Veggie Burgers.  If you have made those burgers, you will love these too!

These Smoky Sweet Potato Fries are awesome.  I used to think that french fries were off limits once I started eating better, but it turns out that’s not the case.

This sweet potato french fry recipe is really simple to make.  The smoky flavor of the chili powder and the smoked paprika really goes well with the sweetness of the sweet potatoes.  This recipe would go great with my veggie burgers.

I loved dipping them into my Homemade Ketchup.  Needless to say, the entire tray was gone in minutes.  My picky, older daughter loved them!  This made me very happy because she says she doesn’t like sweet potatoes.
