Vegetarian Stuffed Sweet Potato

When living a healthy life “on the go,” I find it crucial to have go to meals that are prepped ahead of time and are a nutritional pick-me-up.

With Passover around the corner, my pantry is empty.

With Graduation around the corner, my time is gone.

My go-to meal this week?

Stuffed Sweet Potato

Ingredients:

  • 1 Sweet Potato
  • 1 Cup of frozen brussel sprouts (or whatever vegetables you would like, fresh if you have is fine too!)
  • 1 TBS Teriyaki Sauce
  • 1/4 Cup Mozzarella Cheese
  • Olive oil spray
  • Spices: Salt, Pepper, Granulated Garlic to taste

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Wash sweet potato well. Jab a knife into the sweet potato a few times so that it can cook all the way through.
  3. Spray a piece of foil with olive oil and wrap the sweet potato.
  4. Place in oven 30+ minutes until it is soft to touch.
  5. Defrost frozen brussel sprouts in the microwave & drain liquid
  6. Spray a pan with the olive oil and sauteed the brussel sprouts with desired spices. Once the brussel sprouts brown, add the Teriyaki sauce. Cook for a minute, letting the sauce coat and caramelize the brussel sprouts. Place into a bowl.
  7. **At this point, you can put the brussel sprouts into the fridge and leave the sweet potato in the oven to cook while getting other things done. I placed the sweet potato in the fridge after cooking and made the meal the next day.
  8. Cut open the sweet potato and pour the brussel sprouts in the opening. (If you precooked everything, now place it in the microwave covered until hot)
  9. Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese over the sweet potato as well as any additional wanted spices
  10. Place under the broil and watch the cheese bubble and crisp up! (Watch carefully, depending on the oven, broiling can easily turn to burning)
  11. Take out & Enjoy :)

This healthy meal can easily be prepared ahead of time. I often pop a sweet potato in the oven while doing things around the house. Also, if you’re not a brussel sprout fan don’t have brussel sprouts on hand, feel free to use whatever vegetable you desire!

Yum (!!)
