BBQ Chickpea Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Keeping things comforting, but healthy with these BBQ Chickpea Stuffed Sweet Potatoes. Chickpeas are roasted until crispy and tossed in BBQ sauce. Plus, anything you put inside a sweet potato gets a yes from my dawg!

People ask me all the time what my favorite comfort foods are. The answer I give more often than not is potatoes in all of their forms. When I was a kid, comfort was going through the Wendy’s drive through to get a baked potato with broccoli and cheese. I never like burgers or meat as a kid, and this, to me, was heaven. Now, in these difficult times more than ever, I am leaning on some of my favorite comfort foods. And nothing says comfort like stuffing a sweet potato with all sorts of goodies.

Or maybe that is just me!

I have a thing for nachos!

One of my favorite easy snacks or dinners to make as a kid were nachos. Now, my dad used to make them as a quick lunch or dinner on Sundays throughout the fall and winter months. He would pile the chips high with cheese and peppers and throw them in the oven. By the time we came inside, the nachos were ready for eating and enjoying the football game!

It sounds like a movie. I cannot believe it either.

Sweet Potato Pie Stuffed Dates with Chocolate Drizzle

Sweet Potato Pie Stuffed Dates by @thecuttingveg #realfood #healthydesserts #vegandesserts

Whipped sweet potato pie stuffed dates are pretty much the non-recipe recipe you didn’t know you needed! A dairy free sweet potato filling gets stuffed into juicy medjool dates before a quick drizzle in melted chocolate. Top with coconut whipped cream, close your eyes, and be taken to fall nirvana.

As a lady with not a whole lot of time (hello midterms!) but with a whole lot of basic-ness in my soul, I am always on the hunt for a quick and delicious no bake treat. Now, I haven’t really dabbled in the no bake dessert life. I am mostly a eat all the popcorn for dinner type of gal. But these sweet potato pie stuffed dates? Oh you better believe I am here for it

So let’s get talking.

Sweet potato fries with tahini BBQ sauce are sure to put a smile on any face. I bake them in the oven until crisp, then served with a tahini BBQ sauce that is all kinds of sweet, spicy and creamy. It is the perfect recipe for your next tailgate, meal prep, or lunch.

The Whole Foods salad bar is such a temptation for your wallet I cannot even tell you. They have all of the salads that my brain space simply could not throw together. How does one make more than one type of tempeh salad? On one of those trips I saw in the hot bar these sweet potato wedges with tahini BBQ.

And they say love at first sight does not exist.

Easy Sweet Potato Breakfast Boats

I can feel the hesitancy on your face. Just go on me with this.

This is just one of those things that us Americans need to get better about. The question of “what foods belong at breakfast.” We clearly do not have a problem with eating eggs or even smoothie bowls. So why should we limit what choices we have for dinner. I say… POWER TO THE PEOPLE!

It’s totally worth it

Golden Milk Sweet Potato Fries

How could we possibly make sweet potato fries that much more delicious? How about we golden milk-ify em?

I know what you’re thinking: Sarah, not more of this trend nonsense. Why must be add activated charcoal/matcha/maca to everything with the sole purpose of making .a food seem trendy. But friends, the beauty of this dish is that the incorporating golden milk with sweet potatoes actually amplifies the flavor to a whole other level!

So let us talk about these, shall we. Delicious sweet potatoes? Check. Rich and nutty coconut oil? Check. Your favorite spices, turmeric and ginger. Triple check!

Mediterranean Street Fries

What a way to wake your tastebuds. I swear. Fries before lies!

Ok maybe I am being a leetle bit dramatic, but these fries are where it is at! Over the past couple of months, I have made sweet potato fries religiously during my weekly meal prep. They are so easy and, I think, for the amount of time you put into them, they are worth WAY more than the sum of their parts.

That is like all of my favorite things. Work hard(ly), play hard. That’s what the phrase is, right?
