Happy Tuesday! I finally have some time to post one of my all-time FAVORITE recipes!!! I went through a stage where I think I ate this every night for dinner for almost two weeks straight. AKA it is CRAVE-WORTHY and delicious with 20 g of protein, healthy fats, complex carbs, and it’s vegetarian! Also- it’s basically one giant multi-vitamin-all the health packed into one tasty meal! This recipe is written as a single servings, so for however many people you are feeding, just multiply it! And you know me, it’s ridiculously easy to make.
1 Sweet potato of choice (purple is my favorite)
1/2 C Meatless crumbles (Lightlife, Morning Star, Boca are all great brands)
1/4 C Daiya cheddar cheese shreds
1/4 C yogurt of choice (to keep entirely vegan do plain Silk yogurt). I personally like Chobani or Siggi’s!
1/3 Avocado, sliced (HINT: keep the pit inside the avocado to preserve freshness while you store the leftover)
Chives to top
- Bake the sweet potato:
- Oven: Preheat oven to 400F, pierce sweet potato all around with a fork, bake about 45 minutes-1 hour.
- Microwave: Pierce sweet potato and place in a microwave safe dish with 1/2 cup of water. Cook 6 minutes, then flip (with a fork, it will be incredibly hot) and cook for an additional six minutes.
- While the sweet potato is baking, move to step 2
- In a small pan over medium heat, add meatless crumbles and cheese. **Cheese withstands high temperatures. Stir in the pan until meat is fully cooked- about 4 minutes.
- Cut your sweet potato in half and stuff with meatless crumbles/cheese mixture and top with yogurt/chives/avocado
Fat: 15.5 (great source of mono/polyunsaturated fats)
**Great source of vitamin A and iron

Sweet potatoes are so versatile 🙂
Right?! I’m obsessed with them
YESSS is this the start to the slew of recipes?!!? Sweet potato is my numero uno!!! And I’m loving that the recipe is so simple! Although I’ve never had a purple sweet potato nor did I even know it existed (insert embarrassed emoji here) is there much of a taste difference in it?
Hahha the slew may have just ended unfortunately. BUT YES- SWEET POTATOES ARE SOOO GOOD! That’s okay about the purple sweet potato—- I didn’t know they existed until about a month ago either when we were shopping at whole foods! I would say they taste super similar, maybe a touch sweeter than the regular. I just like to look at them. Hahah! Also- they are super high in antioxidants (I believe even higher than normal SP). Let me know if you ever try one of these little suckers 😉 xo
Totally going to go look for the purple ones now. I’m sure Trader Joes would have it too?! I’ll scope it out! xo
Yes yes! Let me know what you find!!!!
Being Irish , I am more into regular potatoes, but I might have to branch out Mackensie! Hugs, Terri.
Hehe- I don’t blame ya! 😉 Sometimes classic is just best!!! <3
Yum yum! I swear I’m making this sucker for lunch tomorrow! I don’t have a fancy purple one though. Woe is me. ; )
Yayyyyy!!! Hehe- I just discovered the purple at Whole Foods about a month ago, they really don’t taste all that different but they are super fun to look at! Regular ones work just the same! Let me know if you are able to try it out and what you think!!! Have a great rest of your week, Marcia :)!
That combo sounds great–I LOVE stuffed potatoes!
ME TOO! They are my most recent obsession. I just stocked up to make a whole bunch more for dinner the rest of the week! Hope you week has been so good <3
I have never had a purple sweet potato, but now I want to come to your place and eat loaded sweet potatoes and hang out! This looks so good!
I WISH!!!! Girl- if you ever are in the Bay area, we are making it happen! Golden Gate bridge followed by lots of loaded sweet potatos! Hahah!
Oooh, this looks so so good! Sweet potatoes are always a favourite of ours!
Ours too!!!! Lemme know if you ever can give it a go 🙂 Do they have these type of vegan products in Australia?
Oh my gosh this looks amazing! I love loaded sweet potatoes. They are the best and tastiest! I can not wait to try this recipe! <3
Yayyyyy!!!! I seriously had this for dinner every night for almost three weeks now (besides weekends) 😂
I love it! I am the same way! I find some thing I love I eat it until I am sick of it😂🙈💗
YUM! I love sweet potatoes so this sounds delicious!
They are pretty darn YUM! I gottta say- and it’s easy to substitute for “normal” non vegan ingredients too!
I have been wanting to make stuffed sweet potatoes for quite some time now. This post really served as an inspirational. Looks delicious x thanks for sharing! 😊
Aw, yay! This makes me sooo happy!!! 🙂 I hope you enjoy!!
