Biff's Top Tips

1. Stop your avocado from going brown by adding lime juice as it is a strong antioxidant that will dramatically slow the browning process and cover the bowl in tin foil when putting it in the fridge.

2. Poke holes in your sweet potato with a fork to help it cook quicker.

    Prep It

    1. Preheat oven to 200c

    2. Poke holes in each half of the sweet potato with a fork (helps it cook quicker) adding olive oil and seasoning. Then add to a large flat tray and bang in the oven straight away (45 minutes).

    3. Drain the chickpeas, add to a flat tray, adding seasoning, paprika and combine well. (20 minutes)

    4. In a bowl, smash the avocado with a fork with a generous pinch of seasoning, lime juice, half of the finely chopped onion and half of the chilli.

    Cook It

    1. Check on the sweet potato by putting a sharp knife in each one. You are looking for a soft feel.

    2. With 20 minutes to go, add the chickpeas to the oven and cook until well roasted.

    3. Remove the sweet potato once cooked and using a fork, smash up the inside for the topping to sit nicely on.

    4. Add the roasted chickpeas on each potato half, followed by the smashed avocado, onion, chilli, crumbled feta and fresh parsley.
