• 1 sweet potato (big)
• 3/4 cup of beans
• 1 avocado (big)
• 2 carrots
• 2 tomatoes
• 1 green pepper
• 1 cup of sweet corn
• 1⁄2 bunch of parsley
• 2 small spoons of chia

For the salad dressing:
• 1 big spoon of
• 4 big spoons of olive
• Pinch of salt
• Pinch of black pepper

1) Prepare the ingredients

2) Cut all the ingredients into small cubes, for an easier pleasant texture in the mouth. It will also enable you to get a bite of all the ingredients or flavors at once.

3) Boil the sweet potato and let it cook for 7 minutes.
4) Optional: boil the carrots and let them cook for 4 minutes. (this will make the carrot sweeter and texture softer).
5) In a big bowl, add all the ingredients including the olive oil, mustard, salt, and pepper. Toss everything together and ensure you get a thick texture (add more mustard if needed).

6) Serve in a plate and as aside, you can use chapati or brown bread. (Preferably, toast both, it will give you that crunchiness that many like).
7) Sprinkle the chia seeds all over. Not only for a better-looking plate but for health benefits.
