Baked Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Baked Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Ingredients

  • 4 medium/large sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup cashews, soaked overnight
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked black beans
  • 1 medium red onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 3/4 teaspoons pink himalayan sea salt
  • 2 limes
  • cilantro (to garnish)
  • avocado (optional, for serving)

Instructions

  • - Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • - Thoroughly wash and dry sweet potatoes. Pierce each potato multiple times with a fork. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 60-75 minutes, or until cooked through and soft.
  • - While potatoes are baking combine drained cashews, juice of one lime, 1/4 cup of water and 1/4 teaspoon of salt in a blender and combine. Adjust consistency by adding water, one tablespoon at a time, until mixture is light and creamy! Add additional lime juice and salt to taste. Set aside.
  • - In a medium saute pan cook onions in coconut over medium low heat until softened, stirring frequently.
  • - Add beans, chili powder and 1/2 teaspoon of pink salt to saute pan and mix well. Cook for an additional two minutes.
  • - When potatoes are cooked, remove from oven and let sit until just cool enough to handle.
  • - Slice potatoes lengthwise and scoop out about half of the potato. Set aside to eat later (I give the extra to our pups who LOVE it!)
  • - Fill potatoes with black bean mixture, being careful to not tear the potatoes.
  • - Drizzle potatoes with lime crema, garnish with chopped cilantro and sprinkle generously with Maldon salt. I enjoy a little extra lime juice, a side of avocado and some hot sauce!
  • - Enjoy!

    I love sweet potatoes but usually I just chop them up and chuck them into the oven for a bit. I’ve never tried them stuffed and I have clearly been missing out – they look incredible!

    YUM! These pictures are totally mouth-watering! I’d add a tiny bit of cumin and garlic because that’s how I like red beans, but really you have me drooling with just sweet potatoes and beans! The simpler the better ;)

    I made these and they’ve changed my life as well! My son is 24 and his comment, ” This is my favorite thing you’ve ever made!” My husband wants this once a week! My son and husband added shredded chicken to theirs but I had mine as is and they’re just an incredible healthy treat!! I cannot tell you how excited I am about the “lime creme!!!!!!!”
    Thank you for this recipe. Fantastic!!!!!
