STUFFED SWEET POTATOES with Cucumber Chickpea Salad & Miso Tahini

Here's another favorite I make frequently for lunch or dinner. So good and filling too. I'm stuffed.


2 sweet potatoes

1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed

4" cucumber, cut into 1/4 moons

0.5 oz fresh parsley, chopped

1 bunch baby broccoli

3 Tbsp white miso paste

3 Tbsp tahini

1.5 Tbsp white vinegar

2 Tbsp lemon juice

2 tsp sesame seeds

1/2 tsp chili pepper flakes

2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 tsp olive oil


1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Slice the sweet potatoes in half lengthwise. Rub each of the potatoes with 1 tsp olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Roast, cut side down, until tender, about 25 to 30 minutes.

2. Trim baby brocolli stems then chop into bite-sized pieces.

3. In a large bowl, combine the chickpeas, sliced cucumber, parsley, just 1.5 Tbsp lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil, and a pinch of salt. Toss to combine.

4. In a small bowl, combine the white miso paste, tahini, white vinegar, 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice, and 3 tbsp water. Whisk the miso tahini until smooth.

5. Place a skillet over medium-high heat with 1 tsp olive oil. Once hot, add the baby brocolli and 1/4 cup water to create some steam. Cover and cook, shaking the pan occasionally, until bright green and crisp-tender, about 3 to 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

6. Once the sweet potatoes are ready, turn cut-side-up. Using a fork, mash the flesh a bit. Spread the miso tahini onto plates and top with the sweet potatoes. Stuff with baby brocolli and top with cucumber chickpea salad. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and chili pepper flakes.
