Vegan Stuffed Sweet Potatoes with Spinach, White Beans and Carapelli Extra Virgin Olive Oil
A healthy baked sweet potato recipe stuffed with spinach and white beans
From Lindsay Moe, TheLiveInKitchen.com
Baked Sweet Potato
4 sweet potatoes
sweet potato toppings
2 tablespoons Carapelli Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, plus more for finishing the dish
3-4 garlic cloves, minced
10 ounces frozen chopped spinach, defrosted and excess water removed
14 ounces canned great northern beans, rinsed and drained
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Coarse kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes
1/4 cup tahini
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
Heat the oven to 400 F.
Pierce sweet potatoes a few times all over with a fork. Wrap each potato tightly in a square of aluminum foil, then place on a foil lined baking sheet and bake for 60 minutes or until the sweet potatoes feel soft when gently squeezed. Remove from the oven, unwrap and allow to cool enough to handle.
While the sweet potatoes are baking, prepare toppings.
In large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until a pale blonde color. Add the spinach and beans. Season with nutmeg, salt, and pepper to taste. Stir until heated through.
In small bowl, stir together tahini, garlic powder and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Add warm water, a little bit at a time, stirring in completely, until the desired consistency is reached and it becomes a pourable sauce.
Cut a slit down the middle of each potato and use fork to fluff up the inside. Divide the spinach and bean mixture and sun-dried tomatoes evenly over the sweet potatoes, then drizzle with tahini sauce and additional extra virgin olive oil.
