Vegan Stuffed Sweet Potatoes are roasted until golden and filled with protein: hummus, crispy chickpeas, tahini sauce, and sliced avocado.


  • 4 sweet potatoes, skin on, scrubbed clean and dried well
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 batch quick and easy creamy hummus
  • 1 batch crispy chickpeas
  • 1 batch easy creamy vegan tahini sauce
  • 1 avocado, peel and pit removed, chopped or sliced
  • 1/4 medium red onion, finely diced
  • 2 green onions, diced
  • optional: sprinkle of hemp seeds for added protein
  • microgreens or chopped parsley for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.  Poke holes all over the sweet potatoes using a fork.  Coat the sweet potatoes with 1 tablespoon of olive oil using a silicone brush.  Make sure all sides of all four potatoes are generously covered in oil.  Sprinkle each sweet potato generously with salt.  Place the sweet potatoes directly on a baking sheet.  Bake in the preheated oven for 50-55 minutes until a knife easily can pierce through the thickest part of the thickest sweet potato.
  2. While the potatoes are baking, prepare your stuffing ingredients: hummus, crispy chickpeas and tahini sauce.  Prep your avocado, red onion and green onions.
  3. When the sweet potatoes are done cooking, halve each of them lengthwise.  Use a fork to mash the inside of the sweet potato to create a well in the center.  Place each sweet potato on a plate.  Top each half of the sweet potatoes with 2 heaping spoonfuls of hummus and a handful or two of crispy chickpeas (in the center well).  Garnish with a drizzle of tahini sauce and avocado, red onion, green onion, hemp seed (if using) and micrograms or parsley.
  4. Enjoy immediately while sweet potatoes are hot.  The sweet potato skin should be nicely seasoned and crunchy (the skin is edible and packed with nutrients).
