  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes peeled, cut into rounds
  • ½ bell pepper sliced
  • ¼ cup corn
  • ½ ball fresh mozzarella pulled into bite size pieces
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika more to taste
  • salad leaves (avoid spinach if low histamine)
  • pinch salt
  • pinch black pepper optional

For the tahini sauce

  • 2 tablespoon tahini
  • 2 tablespoon warm water


  • Preheat the oven to 180C and line a baking tray with parchment paper. Once at temperature scatter the sweet potato and bell pepper onto the tray. Drizzle them with olive oil, and sprinkle sweet paprika over the sweet potatoes. Bake for 20-25 minutes until cooked through and the potatoes are slightly brown at the edges.
  • Make the tahini sauce by combining the tahini and water, and stirring well until it comes together as a thick sauce. If you prefer a thicker texture add more tahini, or add water for a thinner consistency.
  • Arrange your sweet potatoes on a plate, and add the bell pepper, corn, mozzarella and salad leaves. Drizzle over the tahini sauce and sprinkle with the pumpkin seeds, salt and pepper, if using. Enjoy!


  • The sweet potatoes should be slightly crispy on the edges and soft in the middle.
  • Adjust the amount of spice to preference.
  • If you follow a low histamine diet then you may wish to check that your mozzarella doesn't come in vinegar.
