Sweet and Savory Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Accidentally baked five sweet potatoes this week and was forced to find a delicious way to consume ALL of them. (If I seem a little more orange than usual, it is because of the beta carotene)



But in order to stuff these sweet potatoes we have to bake them first, so here are two ways to do so:

How to bake a sweet potato:

In the oven:

  1. Preheat oven to 425.

  2. Pierce each potato with a fork 3-4 times.

  3. Cover each in tin foil (optional, it just allows it to cook more evenly)

  4. Roast for 40-50 minutes. Let cool.

In a crockpot:

  1. Pierce each potato with a fork 3-4 times.

  2. Place potatoes in the crockpot with a splash of water.

  3. Cook on high for 3 hours or low for 6.

Tahini Mojo Sauce

  • 1/4 cup olive oil

  • 2 tbsp tahini

  • Juice of 1 lime

  1. Bake the sweet potatoes according to above instructions.

  2. In a skillet, heat a little oil (I prefer using a high heat oil like avocado oil here) over medium heat. Rinse and drain a can of Chickpeas or Northern White Beans, and add to the pan. Chop 1/2 white onion and stir it in. Season simply with salt and pepper.

  3. Prepare the Tahini Mojo sauce by either chopping everything by hand or adding everything to a blender.
