  1. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add sweet potato, cover, and steam until tender, 5 to 7 minutes.
  2. Place avocado in a bowl; add olive oil, salt-free seasoning blend, garlic powder, and black pepper and stir to coat. Gently stir sweet potato into avocado mixture; top with Parmesan cheese.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You could boil the sweet potatoes instead if you wanted. I prefer to leave the skin on, but you could certainly peel the sweet potato before cooking if you like.
