1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Toss the sweet potato with olive oil, coriander, cumin and sea salt. Spread on a baking sheet and roast for 20 -30 minutes (or until soft and golden brown).

3. In a small food processor, make the tahini chipotle. Blend the tahini, lime juice, garlic, chipotle peppers, basil and 3 tbsp. olive oil. Add water if the sauce is too thick. Season (to taste) and add more peppers if you like it spicy!

4. To serve, add a spoonful of the sweetcorn mixture as a base, then lay avocado slices and sweet potato on top. Garnish with coriander and chipotle tahini.
