Sweet potato bites with avocado mash, feta + pomegranate seeds!

I love the combination of these fall flavors as well as the sweet + savory mix in each bite!

This recipe is seriously the perfect way to use up some of those leftovers while also creating a fun, fresh dish that you more than likely didn’t have Thanksgiving Day!

You could also make these sweet potato bites for a healthy holiday party appetizer, a festive snack or turn crostinis into toast for a meal-sized portion!

This sweet potato recipe is incredibly simple for a lot of reasons, but the main reason is because of the avocado mash from Good Foods that I use. Their avocado mash saves me SO much time and I love how fresh it stays. Avocados tend to go bad before I get to finishing them, but this avocado mash stays perfect in the refrigerator.

I also love the short, simple ingredient list.

AKA: avocado, lemon juice, salt + pepper.

Not only is the avocado mash great for this recipe, but it’s perfect for on-the-go lunches and portion control. Anyone else have awful portion control when it comes to avocado?

For this recipe you will need:

1 Sweet Potato
2 Packets Avocado Mash
2 Tbsp Feta
2 Tbsp Pomegranate Seeds
Baking Pan
Chef's Knife
Serving Tray

Sweet Potato Quinoa Cakes with Pomegranate Guacamole! A flavorful side dish for the holidays. Savory potato cakes with guacamole, feta and pomegranate.

Hi friends! Letting you know that this post is sponsored by Wholly Guacamole. Guac that’s ready when you are? Best thing ever.

Have you ever seen a more festive side dish? All my favorite flavors in one simple snack or appetizer. Crispy sweet potato cakes, perfect guacamole, juicy pomegranate arils and creamy, creamy feta. It’s a texture of holidays right on your plate.

Like most things around here, these fritters are easier to whip up then they look. Cook the taters and the quinoa, throw everything in a bowl with some herbs and binders and ta-da. Sweet potato cakes are ready for the topping. Even being lightly fried, they are still packing a nutrient-punch. Rich in protein, healthy fats, antioxidants and fiber. Beautiful, healthy and easy the holiday-entertaining trifecta.

And yes, for this one, we do use and love the classic Wholly Guacamole. The chunks of real avocado, the creamy texture and homemade, lightly spiced taste… it’s just the best of the best. I know you could make your own guacamole for this dish, but why? There are a million things on the to-do list, don’t let homemade guac be one of them.

Wholly Guacamole is also gluten-free, vegan and free of fillers or artificial flavors. 🏆 But really, the taste is all that matters. You guys know how I feel about my guacamole, it’s one of my 5 food groups and I can’t imagine going a day without a scoop or two of my favorite green fruit. Wholly Guacamole has completely changed my mind about what packaged guacamole can be. It’s everything I want in a guacamole, with none of the work or waiting for avocados to be just ripe. Open, scoop, top and go.

Unofficially, pomegranate seeds are meant for the holiday season. Green avocado + ruby red pomegranates it works on so many levels. My mom likes to stir feta and pomegranate seeds into her guac this time of year and I thought it would be the perfect color and taste combo for these crispy potato cakes. Once again, mom was right.

The best thing about these cakes is that you can make them any size you need. Mini for a passed appetizer version or larger for a side dish. And, um, a fried egg on top also makes for the perfect brunch. Trust me on this.

With Luisana’s program, I lost 30 lbs in 3 months. My kidney disorder improved and my doctor lowered my prescriptions. My cholesterol and blood sugar also went down. I gained my confidence, and became a positive and happy person. Luisana was extremely helpful, and walked us through every step.

Bushra from Toronto, Ontario

I had gone to extremes to lose weight but none of the programs ever address our responsibility to Allah before. I highly recommend Luisana’s program. It’s more than just food. I loved my experience it was exactly what I needed at the time. Luisana is so good at educating her clients and teaching them to reflect.

Kaltun from Columbus, Ohio

Luisana provides the knowledge and encouragement to help get you started and motivated. She is decades beyond her time with valuable insights and exercises to help you determine what works for you as well as what is REALLY holding you back. So far I knocked off 20 lbs, but most importantly I feel great and at my best. Real change begins here!

Colleen from Paterson, New Jersey

The support given by Luisana, as well as the group, was helpful in uncovering deeper issues with our relationship with food. We covered emotional, spiritual, and physical improvements that we can make. It has been an amazing journey and I would encourage anyone looking to improve their whole self to give this program a whole-hearted effort.

Menahal from Queens, New York

My concept about healthy eating has totally changed. Working with Luisana was an absolute eye opener, not about just food but everything we consume in general. I have never felt this motivated before. Taking Luisana’s program has to be one of the best investments I’ve made in myself.

Aleeza from Perth, Australia

Luisana is not only an excellent nutritional coach but also an exemplary life coach. She walks her talk and is very knowledgeable, hard working and dedicated! I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to take charge of their health and life. I’m so thankful to Allah (swt) from having brought her into my life.

She is there literally every step of the way to help with any and everything. I absolutely loved having her as a coach and would most definitely work with her again!

Sabah from Brooklyn, New York

I struggled to lose weight for 7 years. I had tried everything but nothing stuck. Luisana showed me step-by-step to build a healthy lifestyle, gain positivity, and lose 14 pounds which I’ve kept off until now. I’ve learned a lot from her and I would encourage everyone to make a healthy lifestyle your priority and sign up with Luisana!

Misbah from Toronto, Ontario

It was a wonderful experience working with Luisana she guided us deeply and shared a lot of knowledge and because of her I now know about GMOs, organic foods, supplements, and weight loss. This program motivated me it gives you the feeling that you’re not alone. I would definitely take it again.

Kiran from Toronto, Ontario

Through Luisana’s program, I learned how to be less dependent on meat and how to incorporate 10 thousand steps into my day. I feel less tired and am proud to be off caffeine. I’ve become much happier and my time management is better because I know what I can handle and what to say no to.


Cooking with sweet potatoes:

Sweet potatoes are very nutritious, all year vegetables. They are a great source of protein, also rich in vitamins, minerals and dietary fiber. I enjoy making sweet potato fries as a healthy side for sandwiches or burgers, and I also have a great recipe for a flavorful sweet potato soup.

The combination of oven roasted sweet potatoes, salty feta and crunchy toasted pumpkin seeds created a light, perfect for summer elegant dish. It can be served as a meal or a side dish. Again it might look awkward to you, but feta cheese goes perfect with these sweet caramelized rich in flavor potatoes. You only need to season this salad with some salt, black pepper and fresh chopped parsley.


Roasted Sweet Potato Salad with Bacon

Roasted Sweet Potato Salad puts this classic potluck dish in a whole new light. You have those caramelized potatoes complemented by pineapples, cranberries, and pomegranate seeds. The smoky bacon and salty feta perfectly balance out the flavors.

Also, the pecans add a nice crunchy texture to it. Finally, the creamy and tangy dressing makes everything come together smooth and delicious!

Trust me, it&rsquos impossible not to rave about this beautiful salad. You can serve it with many dishes, but it&rsquos also good on its own. This is our favorite side dish during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.

You can also easily modify it by adding or swapping other ingredients. Make a big batch if you&rsquore serving it to a crowd because it&rsquos always the first thing to run out!


Roasted Vegetable Fattoush Salad

Crunchy zatar seasoned pita chips, sweet caramelized onions, roasted tomatoes, and crisp, lemon laced vegetables our Roasted Vegetable Fattoush Salad is a perfect light dinner that hints towards the warmer months ahead.


Tabbouleh with sweet potatoes is a wintery spin on the classic

…or something like it. Nonetheless, it’s a delicious creation that’s light and filling all at the same time, as I like grain salads to be. And the fresh herbs and lemon keep it tasting sunny and bright, so that we can, just for a moment, forget about the turn of seasons that is just around the corner. Though, if you have fully embraced fall, and are looking to take advantage of fresh fall produce you can also easily modify this salad recipe: in place of sweet potatoes you could use Hokkaido or butternut squash. And I also willing to bet that sweet and earthy golden beets would also taste great!


Yep, this is my new favorite way to do Mediterranean. A simple and quick-lunch or dinner that’s both satisfying, savory and sweet, and seriously healthy, seriously delicious. Yes, I’m in love.

I hope you LOVE this salad too! It’s:

Fresh
Packed with healthy goodness
Satisfying
Flavorful
& Easy to make!
