A Slice of Thanksgiving

A Slice of Thanksgiving


1 medium sweet potato, roughly chopped
2/3 cup rolled oats
1 egg
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1 handful baby spinach
1/2 onion, sliced
1/4 cup cranberry sauce
3/4 cup cooked shredded turkey


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Add sweet potato and oats to a food processor and pulse. Next, add in the egg, baking soda and seasonings, then pulse again until a thick and well-combined mixture is formed. Spread sweet potato mixture on a parchment-lined baking sheet forming a circular crust, making it about 1/4 inch thick. Bake the sweet potato crust for about 25-30 minutes, checking on it occasionally. While it is in the oven, caramelize the sliced onions with a drizzle of olive oil in a frying pan over medium-high for about 7-8 minutes, then toss in spinach and heat until wilted. Remove sweet potato crust from the oven, then carefully flip it onto a separate parchment paper to golden the other side. Place back in the oven for another 5-8 minutes, or until both sides are firm and evenly golden. For a saucier cranberry sauce, pulse it in the food processor or mash it up using a fork. Spread it over the crust, then add the turkey, sautéed spinach and caramelized onions on top. Reheat, if toppings aren’t already warm. Slice into slices and enjoy! *Note: For a thicker crust or bigger pizza, make a second batch of the sweet potato crust and bake in the oven a bit longer. Feel free to be generous with the toppings, too!

Looks so good Gill! They are always great, but a particularly good combination of veg for us this week! Just made a veggie lasagne with the squash, leeks and mushroom. Yum! X
