Ingredients

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1 1/2 cups finely chopped kale
  • 3 garlic cloves crushed
  • 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Pinch of salt & pepper
  • 1 cup shredded goat cheese or cheese alternative
  • Topping ideas: sliced green onions vegan sour cream, crushed hazelnuts, red pepper flakes, etc.

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Place potatoes on a baking sheet and bake for 40 - 60 minutes until fork tender. Remove, let cool for 5 minutes, then slice in half lengthwise and scoop out the flesh into a mixing bowl.
  • Return skins to baking sheet, flesh side up and bake for 5 - 10 minutes until crispy.
  • While skins are cooking, prepare the filling. Cook the garlic and kale together in a nonstick skillet until the kale has wilted, about 2 minutes. Transfer kale to mixing bowl with sweet potato, add quinoa, tahini and water and mix to combine. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Remove skins from oven and evenly distribute mixture into each of them. Sprinkle with cheese and return to oven for 5 minutes until cheese has melted.
  • Let potatoes cool for 5 - 10 minutes before serving.
