Sweet Potatoes Stuffed with Spinach and Beans – Fully Vegan and healthy
Baked Sweet Potato
- 4 Medium size Sweet Potatoes
Spinach and Beans Filling
- 2 Tbps Virgin Olive Oil
- 1 x 500g bag frozen chopped spinach
- 3 Tsp minced store-bought garlic, or fresh if you have
- 1 x 398 ml tin of Navy Beans
- 1 x 398 ml tin of Pinto Beans
- ¼ Tsp ground nutmeg
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
- ¼ cup finely snipped Mediterranean Sun-dried Tomatoes
- I used scissors to snip it into small pieces, as it’s so much easier to do than to cut with a knife
- ¼ cup Organic Fair Trade Sesame Tahini
- A large pinch of Garlic powder
- As well as a large pinch of Salt
- Warm water – NOT boiling water
Baked Sweet Potato
- Heat the oven to 400F.
- Wash/scrub and pierce the sweet potatoes with a fork several times.
- Take each and wrap it in aluminum foil, place on a foil-lined baking sheet, and bake for 1-1½ hours or until soft.
- Remove, unwrap, and allow to cool in order to handle.
- While you’re baking the sweet potatoes, you need to prepare the filling.
- In a large frying pan, add and heat 2 Tbsp olive oil over medium heat.
- Cook the garlic by stirring it for 2 minutes until lightly colored.
- Add the spinach (defrosted and excess water removed) and all the beans.
- Spice with nutmeg, salt, and pepper to taste.
- Mix and stir until well heated.
Sesame Tahini Sauce
- In a small glass bowl whisk together tahini, garlic powder, and salt.
- Add warm water bit by bit, stirring until it becomes a pourable sauce.
- Set aside to drizzle over the dish once done.
How to finish off and stuff your Sweet Potatoes
- Cut it open down the middle (lengthwise) and slightly fluff the inside flesh with a fork.
- Divide the filling and cut up sun-dried tomatoes evenly over the sweet potatoes.
- If you have extra, just add it to the size of your plate to be enjoyed on its own.
- Now drizzle with tahini sauce and if desired some additional extra virgin olive oil over the sweet potatoes.
