Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7. Chop the sweet potato into 2cm chunks (no need to peel). Put the sweet potato chunks onto a large baking tray. Drizzle with oil, season with the Mexican style spice mix, salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer. TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary. When the oven is hot, roast on the top shelf until golden, 25-35 mins. Turn halfway through.
Halve the pepper and discard the core and seeds. Slice into thin strips. Halve, peel and thinly slice the red onion. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). Pop the pepper, red onion and half of the garlic onto a baking tray. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper then toss to coat. Roast on the middle shelf of your oven until soft and slightly charred, 20-25 mins.
Zest and halve the lime. Halve the avocado and remove the stone. Use a tablespoon to scoop the flesh onto a board and chop into 1cm chunks. Pop into a large bowl with all of the lime zest and juice. Add the olive oil for the dressing and sugar (see ingredients for both amounts).
Roughly chop the coriander (stalks and all). Pop half of the coriander into the bowl with the avocado and season with salt and pepper. Mix and set aside. Trim the baby gem, halve lengthways, then thinly slice widthways.
When the sweet potato has 5 mins of cooking time remaining, tear the ciabatta into 2cm chunks. Pop them into a bowl. Drizzle with oil, season with salt, pepper and the remaining garlic, toss to coat. Pop the croutons on top of the sweet potato and bake until golden, 4-5 mins.
When everything is ready, pop the roasted sweet potato, pepper, red onion, croutons and baby gem into the bowl with the avocado. Mix well. Share between your bowls, then crumble over the Greek style salad cheese and sprinkle with the remaining coriander. Enjoy!
