Sweet Potato Turkey Sandwich

Sweet Potato Turkey Sandwich

Sweet potatoes make the “bread” for a satisfying sandwich!


1 medium sweet potato (about 7 1/2 ounces or 210 grams), peeled
1 1/2 tablespoons oil, divided
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon salt, add more to taste
1 large egg
2 tablespoons hummus (certified gluten-free if necessary; pick your favorite variety)
2 ounces deli-sliced turkey
2 slices tomato
1/4 cup spinach


Create sweet potato noodles with Blade B of a veggie spiralizer. Chop off the pointy ends of the sweet potato to make it easier to spiralize. Slice up any parts of the sweet potato that did not get spiralized, and add it to the noodles.

Over medium-high heat, pour the olive oil in a sauté pan. Once the pan is hot, add in the sweet potato noodles and stir. Let the noodles cook for about 4 minutes and season with garlic powder, thyme, and salt.

Turn off the heat. In a bowl, mix the cooked noodles with the egg until well-incorporated.

Oil the pan with the rest of the olive oil. When the noodles are cool enough to handle, form them into two squares (about the size of a slice of sandwich bread) directly on the oiled pan. Turn the stove on to medium-high heat and cook each side for about 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and cool slightly.

Once the sweet potato “bread” is cool enough to handle, start assembling the sandwich. Spread 1 tablespoon of hummus on each slice, and stacked with turkey, tomatoes, and spinach and top with the remaining sweet potato patty.

    "If you want to WIN more in life you are in the right place my friend! I am blessed and privileged everyday to help people WIN more in life.

    I got my start as the youngest Director of Strength & Conditioning at the Division I level at Oral Roberts University and have been blessed to COACH professional athletes from the NFL, NBA, MLB, MLS, and WNBA through Dynamic Sports Development. As an ENTREPRENEUR I then started Bootcamp Tulsa to help women WIN in their Fitness, Nutrition & in Life. On a daily basis I now run our Non-Profit, 501 (c) (3), Fit First Responders serving those that serve us everyday, our Police Officers, Firefighters, Medics and national Guard.

    If I'm not helping people WIN through my Performance Coaching you will find me motivating people on stage through my MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKING in churches, companies, universities and athletic organizations. I even took some of that motivation and combined it with a winning game plan to author a few books. I love helping people WIN but there is nothing I'm more passionate about then being a FATHER to my beautiful daughter and a HUSBAND to my hot wife."
