4. Running on Veggies: Twice Baked Mexican Style loaded Sweet Potato
Recipe: preheat oven 375
- 4-5 large sweet potatoes
- 1 cup chopped spinach or baby kale
- 1/2-3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
- 1 teaspoon hot sauce (optional)
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- salt to taste
- 4-5 heaping tablespoons of Better Bean Black Beans
- Line a tray with parchment, wrap each sweet potato in foil separately. Place each wrapped sweet potato on your tray lined with parchment. Cook until soft around 1 hour and 45 minutes. Keep in mind every sweet potato is different depending on the size you buy is how long it will cook. You just want to make sure that its soft thats when you know its ready. The ones I used were large potatoes.
- Take out of the oven and let the sweet potatoes cool completely. Unwrap the sweet potatoes and cut them in half. Scoop out the center very carefully, leaving the skin in tact. It is a good idea to leave some sweet potato inside so you avoid ripping the skin. Place sweet potato filling in a large mixing bowl.
- Into the mixing bowl add chopped spinach, almond milk (start with 1/2 cup see if it needs more), nutritional yeast, hot sauce, garlic powder and salt. Mix and mash together until smooth.
- Now place your emptied sweet potatoes skins on a the tray lined with parchment. Fill each sweet potato with the filling, remembering to leave some room for the beans.
- Once each sweet potato is filled, add around 1 heaping tablespoon of Better Beans black beans to the center of the potato.
- When ready to serve, warm in the oven for 15-20 minutes at 350
- Right before serving add the topping
- 1/2 avocado diced
- 1/2 cup tomatoes diced
- 1 tablespoon of lemon
- salt to tast
- In a small mixing bowl add diced avocado, tomatoes, lemon and salt. Mix together.
- Once sweet potatoes are warmed up and ready to serve, top with avocado mixture. Around 1 tablespoon per potato.
- Makes approximately 3 cups, or 6 servings (1/2 cup per serving)
- Will keep for 3-4 days in an airtight container in the fridge.
