Sweet Potato & Spring Onion sandwich, is one of the highly nutritious and is absolutely filling if taken in right amount.

Every day, while packing lunch boxes for my children, I try making different variety of sandwiches at least twice a week.

But, like any other Mum, mornings, being very busy time of the day, I don’t get enough time to take few snaps. And hence, I end up only few lunch box recipes.

But this day, I decided to make sandwiches for all of us as a brunch. Which made my job simple but completely satisfied our hunger. Gave me ample time for taking the photos too. 🙂

Step Wise pics Procedure for ‘Sweet Potato and Spring Onion Sandwich’:

Prep Work:

As part of the prep work, boiling the sweet potatoes is very much required.

You can boil the sweet potatoes either on Stove Top (or) in an Instant Pot. I have given below both the methods so check accordingly.

Boiling the Sweet Potatoes on Stove Top:

In a sauce pan add 4 cups of water. Put the sweet potatoes inside. Close with lid, Let them boil under high flame for 15 to 20 mins. Switch the flame OFF, remove the sweet potatoes and use as required.

Boiling the Sweet Potatoes in Instant Pot:

Pour 2 cups of water into the Instant Pot. Place the trivet, over it place the sweet potatoes. Close the IP lid. Set the mode to PRESSURE COOK, pressure level to HIGH, time to 5 mins, turn the valve to SEALING.
Release the pressure naturally (NPR). Open the lid and use the sweet potatoes as required.

Prepare Sandwich Filling:

Into a mixing bowl, take all these>> chopped spring onions, chopped coriander leaves, chopped green chillies, salt, dry herbs mix, chopped ginger, chopped garlic. Take the boiled sweet potatoes, peel and mash them.
After mashing the sweet potatoes, mix up all the rest of the ingredients thoroughly.

Adding the Filling:

Apply butter on the bread slices. And smear tomato sauce / tomato ketchup on top.
Using a spoon, spread the ‘Sweet Potato Stuffing’ throughout the bread slices. Top up each slice with a tablespoon of cheese.

To Grill the Sandwich:

Sandwich maker: Brush the base of sandwich maker with butter, place the bread slices (one above another) and close the lid. Switch on the gadget & toast it until done.
Stove top grill pan: Put the grilled pan on stove top under high flame. Smear it with butter, place the bread slices, grill for 3-4 mins on each side.

Tips:

  • Adjust the salt and spice as per your taste.
  • Try to add more spice, to sub the sweetness of the sweet potatoes.
  • You can use any other bread of your choice. I used Whole Wheat Seeded Bread for this recipe.
  • You can even avoid the sweet potatoes in the recipe, to make it lighter in CARBS! But actually, sweet potatoes are itself low in calories.
  • Storage: Make the stuffing well before, store it in the fridge and use it whenever needed.
  • You can even make the sandwiches well before, store for 1 day. Reheat on stove top before serving.

Result:

  • These, Sweet Potato & Spring onion sandwich, were completely filling and you wouldn’t feel hungry till the next meal.
  • The sweetness of sweet potatoes was not at all visible in taste.
  • The addition of spring onions has played the main role for an entirely new taste & flavour of the sandwich.
  • We had them with regular tomato ketchup as a dip and freshly sliced oranges & strawberries on the side, so it made a complete meal.
