by: Nicole Cappetta



3 medium sweet potatoes

1/2 -3/4 cup of avocado oil

2 egg yolks

1/2 lemon (juiced)

1 tbsp mustard

1 clove of garlic

handful of fresh dill (or 1 tsp of dried dill)


sesame seeds (optional)


rinse dried garbanzo beans and soak in warm water for 4-6 hours

when done soaking, boil in water for 30 minutes

(if you are using canned garbanzo beans, skip forward to next steps)

preheat oven to 400

stab sweet potatoes a few times with a fork (really get your anger out)

place directly on oven rack and cook for 40 minutes or so

in a oven safe dish, add 1 tsp avocado oil

add garbanzo beans, salt, pepper and garlic powder to dish

rub those beans down until full seasoned

put in the oven for 20 minutes

while garbanzo beans and sweet potatoes are cooking...

add the following into a food processor (you can use a blender, if it has a top where you can pour liquid in while it's blending; immersion blender works too but it will take a little maneuvering)

2 egg yolks

1/2 lemon (juiced)

1 tbsp mustard

1 clove of garlic

salt + pepper + garlic powder

fresh dill


while these ingredients are blending together you are going to SLOWLY pour in the avocado oil (between 1/2 - 3/4 cup) into the food processor. now when I say pour the oil in slowly, I mean so slow that the oil is trickling in as the other ingredients are blending. The "SLOWNESS" of the pour is critical to the consistency of the aioli. If you pour the oil in too fast then mixture will remain very thin.

...basically, if your wrist is not in some sort of awkward discomfort during this, you are pouring tooo quickly.

once sweet potatoes & garbanzo beans are done cooking, remove from the oven.

slice sweet potatoes in 1/2 long ways.

stuff with arugula

next add in garbanzo beans

drizzle them babies with that aioli

top with sesame seeds

serve & enjoy.
