1. Whisk the oregano, mint, dill, capers, lemon zest, lemon juice and olive oil together in a medium bowl. Add the cannellini beans and stir until well combined.

2. Using a potato peeler, peel the zucchini into ribbons. Add the ribbons to the bowl with the cannellini beans and toss gently to combine. Ensure that the zucchini ribbons are separated and well coated in the dressing. Set aside for 5 minutes to allow the flavours to infuse.

3. Wash and dry the sweet potato. Cut the sweet potato lengthways into slices about 1cm thick. Trim the ends a little, if necessary, so the slices can fit in your toaster. Toast to your liking (these took four toasting cycles).

4. To serve, divide the toasted sweet potato over two serving plates. Top with the zucchini and cannellini bean salad and scatter over the toasted pine nuts.

Once you’ve got the hang of ‘toasting’ the sweet potato slices, you might like to top them with:

  • Smashed avocado, wilted spinach and poached egg

  • Hummus, sliced tomato and sprouts

  • Nut butter, sliced fresh fruit and a sprinkle of cinnamon, nuts and seeds. 

Sweet potato works well with either sweet or savoury toppings, so feel free to get creative. We’d love to hear (or see!) some of your favourite combinations too. Feel free to tag @sweat in your photos!
