Tips For Making Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

With only four ingredients, it doesn’t take much to make these vegan stuffed sweet potatoes.

  • Pierce the sweet potatoes. The sweet potatoes bake right on a baking sheet without needing to be covered or wrapped in foil, making them super easy to make. Just be sure to pierce the sweet potatoes a few times with a fork to let steam escape. I use a fork and add a few holes to each side and along the top where I will cut to the sweet potato open.
  • Make the sweet potatoes in the oven or microwave. You’ll find instructions for both in the recipe card at the bottom of the post.
  • Don’t over steam the broccoli. For perfect broccoli the color tells all. Broccoli is done as soon as it turns bright green. Over cooked broccoli looses it’s vibrant color and will be mushy.
  • For more protein, add a black beans or lentils. They can be warmed, or added at room temperature.
  • For more creamy sauces, try using this Tahini Miso Dressing, or tahini based Lemon Tahini Dressing or this cashew based Vegan Aioli!

  1. Absolutely delicious. I omitted the avocado and added serrano peppers because I like it spicy. Will certainly make this again. Thanks for sharing!

  2. This was super yum! Perfect combination. I can't wait to have it again! And I knew I would love the sauce so I doubled it and used way more sriracha. SO GOOD! Thank you for this great, simple, delicious recipe :)
