Meatless Monday: Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Happy Monday! This week we have two recipes for a stuffed sweet potatoe. One is moderately stuffed and the other is mega stuffed if you’re extra hungry, or can’t resist that mouthwatering picture.

According to the 9 Billion, the meat and livestock industry is responsible for 37% of methane and 65% of nitrous oxide emissions in the world. Cutting meat out of your diet once a week can help to reduce carbon emissions.

Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Recipe One: Simple Stuffed. Skinny Style.
1 sweet potato, oven-baked/slit down middle
3/4 cup plain soy yogurt
1/3 cup tomatoes, diced
sprinkle of chopped cilantro
chopped chives
a few dashes of chipotle spice
salt/pepper to taste

Recipe Two: Over-Stuffed. Fully Loaded.
1 sweet potato, oven-baked/slit down middle
1/2 cup refried beans (spicy flavor for me)
1/3 cup mushroom quinoa (basic quinoa tossed with sauteed shiitake mushrooms + optional nutritional yeast)
1/4 cup marinated kale salad (recipe below)
2 Tbsp vegan chipotle sweet potato sauce (recipe below)
chopped chives
pepper to taste

Directions for stuffing potatoes: Simply pile on the toppings! Sticky or heavy items are best layered first. For the loaded potato I did beans, quinoa, salad, dressing, chives/pepper on top.

Kale Salad
2 cups kale, chopped
1 tomato, diced
2 Tbsp sliced almonds
2 scallions, chopped
tossed in Miso Dressing – recipe in this post

Chipotle Sweet Potato Sauce
1 Tbsp baked sweet potato (scoop from potato)
1 Tbsp mayo
a few dashes chipotle powder
1 tsp maple or agave syrup
(thin out with a splash of liquid if desired – water, vinegar, oil works)

Good Happens.

Peace Grl Out!
