healthy loaded sweet potatoes
  • sweet potatoes
  • cheddar cheese (optional)
  • black beans
  • toasted pumpkin seeds
  • greek yogurt + lime + salt + chile powder
  • (vegan sub: chipotle cashew cream or avocado cream)
  • chives
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Poke holes into your sweet potatoes and bake them on a baking sheet (don't wrap them in foil), for about 40-45 minutes or until they're fork tender.
  3. Remove from the oven. Slice them open, and scoop out a little bit to make room for your stuffing. (I also gently mash a little bit of the inside with the back of my fork).
  4. Optional step: Sprinkle cheese on top and pop them back in the oven (I switch to broil) for a few minutes for the cheese to melt.
  5. While you wait for your cheese to melt, mix together greek yogurt with a squeeze of lime, salt and a bit of chile powder. Taste and adjust, making it as spicy/tangy as you like.
  6. Stuff with black beans, spicy pumpkin seeds, and top with chile-spiced greek yogurt.
  7. Sprinkle some chives on top, dust with extra chile powder, and dig in.
