I had this sweet potato laying around in cupboard and it was time to use it...plus lunch was getting closer.
There was some quinoa left over from my muffins so I decided to mix it up with sweet potato. Lunch was very delicious! This would also make a good side dish!
Stuffed Sweet Potato & Quinoa
1 medium sweet potato
1/2 c. cooked quinoa
1 TBSP nutritional yeast (if you don't have this ingredient..still good without!)
1 TBSP pure maple syrup
1 TBSP non-dairy milk (I used soy)
Pecans for sprinkling....optional
Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees.
-Wrap the sweet potato in foil and bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour until tender.
-When done bake, unwrap potato and cut lengthwise.
-Gently scoop out the inside without tearing the flesh.
-In a large bowl, mash the sweet potato well. Add remaining ingredients and combine. Sprinkle top with pecans.
-Equally stuff the potato skins on a baking sheet. Put back in the oven and bake for another 15-20 minutes.
-Take out of oven and let cool before indulging yourself!
I sprinkled one of mine with nutritional yeast!
