How to prepare sweet potato butter?

Start by making eggplant hummus. To do this, wash the aubergines, cut them in half and place them on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Pierce the holes with a fork and bake at 180 degrees for about 40 minutes, or until the eggplant is soft. Allow the eggplant to cool slightly, then place the cooled eggplant halves on a sieve, remove the peel and squeeze out the excess water from the cooked contents. Then place the eggplant in a food processor with the garlic, tahini and seasoning and blitz until smooth.

Set the aubergine hummus aside to cool and prepare the sweet potato slices. To do this, wash and peel the sweet potato (unpeeled sweet potato is also suitable) and slice into slices about 0.5-1 cm thick. Place the sweet potato slices on a baking tray covered with baking paper and bake at 200 degrees for 30 minutes, until the sweet potato is soft and golden brown. Allow the sweet potato slices to cool and then start making the sandwich. Smear one of the sweet potato slices with aubergine hummus, top with a lettuce leaf, tomato slice and onion ring, and repeat the process if desired. On top of everything, place another slice of sweet potato. Serve and enjoy!
