The sweetness of the sweet potatoes works really well with the creamy avocado and slightly sharp tomatoes.  The recipe is really simple and apart from the time needed to roast the sweet potatoes, it comes together really quickly. It makes a great lunch served on its own , I like it with some tinned mackerel or other fish If I feel like something a bit more substantial.

It is also a perfect side dish for some grilled chicken, fish or steak for a quick, easy, and healthy mid week dinner.

Its worth making sure the avocados you use are perfectly ripe, if they are too hard just leave them out in the kitchen for a day or so and they should be good to go.
