cheesy-sweet-potato-bites

Ingredients

  • 1½ tablespoons olive oil, plus extra for greasing
  • Black Pepper Vitality™
  • 2 sweet potatoes, unpeeled
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 ounces fresh mozzarella, thinly sliced (optional)
  • 2 avocados
  • 2 drops Lemon Vitality™
  • 1 drop Lime Vitality™
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • ¼ teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1–2 Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped

Instructions

  1. Place oven racks in upper and lower thirds of your oven and preheat to 425⁰ F. Line two rimmed baking sheets with foil and lightly coat with olive oil.
  2. Dip a toothpick into Black Pepper Vitality essential oil and swirl the toothpick in 1½ tablespoons olive oil. Continue blending essential oil and olive oil until you’ve reached your desired flavor.
  3. Scrub sweet potatoes until clean and cut into ½-inch slices. Arrange in a single layer on greased baking sheets, then brush sweet potato tops with olive oil mixture. Sprinkle slices with salt. Roast for 20–25 minutes or until golden brown underneath.
  4. If you’re not using mozzarella, flip slices and roast for an additional 10 minutes or until cooked through. If you are using mozzarella, remove sweet potatoes from the oven at 8 minutes, top with a mozzarella slice, return to oven, and bake for remaining 2 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
  5. Remove baking sheets from oven and set aside to cool slightly.
  6. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, use a fork to mash together avocados, Lemon Vitality, Lime Vitality, lime juice, chili powder, and garlic.
  7. Top slices with a dollop of avocado mixture and garnish with chopped tomatoes and cilantro. Season with additional salt and pepper to taste.

Easy Kale Chips

I know – this isn’t a new recipe. But they are delicious. And I love to make them because it takes no time at all. The only trouble is that however many I make is generally however many I eat in one sitting. So if you haven’t tried them yet – just do it. Buying the kale in a package just makes it that much easier!

Easy Kale Chips

Ingredients:

  • 1 package organic baby kale
  • Your favorite seasoning – some good choices are garlic powder, Young Living’s Juva Spice, or cajun seasoning
  • olive or grapeseed oil

Preheat oven to 350˚. Place the leaves of kale in a mixing bowl, drizzle on olive oil and gently season. Since the kale will shrink as it cooks, you won’t need a lot of the seasoning. Toss to coat evenly, then spread out on a cookie sheet. You may want to lay down a sheet of parchment paper on the cookie sheet first – I didn’t in the picture. 🙂

Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until desired crispness is achieved. Eat and enjoy!
