Vegan Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Vegan Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

These delicious vegan stuffed sweet potatoes are so good served with a bowl of rice and a green salad. The picture of this recipe on my phone and judging by the look I believe it is from the Food Network. I am so happy I finally made it!

I love sweet potatoes and black beans, and topped with avocado and cilantro! Say no more! The problem for me is finding extra large sweet potatoes; the smaller they are, the harder it is to scrap them and keep the skin intact. So make sure you buy large, smooth, and even sweet potatoes.

As I made this recipe so many times, I add a bit more heat to it. A pinch of cayenne pepper or a dash of hot sauce might be needed if you like me, likes spicy foods.

The last time I had this stuffed sweet potatoes I cut them smaller and rolled them in corn tortillas! DIVINE! I also tried rolling the entire sweet potato as a burrito, and that was like dying and going straight to heaven!

For this recipe, I used black beans, but kidney beans are excellent! Any beans will work. I have tried with garbanzo, lentils and adzuki, and they are all delicious.

I also added crispy tempeh for extra protein and the texture, and also because I love tempeh; in this dish it is perfect! The crispy texture is makes a big difference as everything is so soft and mushy. You can top with raw red onions and sliced radishes, anything raw works.
