Sweet potatoes are absolutely my favorite food, and I am so excited to share this amazing stuffed sweet potato recipe. With the deliciousness of a potato and the nutrition of a vegetable, sweet potatoes make a perfect lunch or dinner especially with the addition of hummus, rice, and avocado.
As the end of the semester approaches, things are starting to get a little crazy. When my schedule gets really busy, it can be difficult to get to the dining hall for every meal. Instead of just snacking all day, I like to be able to eat a substantial meal without having to leave my room. A stuffed sweet potato is the perfect meal to give me the energy to get through a busy day without feeling overly stuffed (hehe).
Since sweet potatoes are my favorite food and I eat them very regularly, I absolutely love having a Potato Express – Microwave Potato Cooker. You can use this potato bag for any potatoes and makes cooking them in the microwave incredibly fast and easy. I also used Seeds of Change Quinoa and Brown Rice w/ Garlic for the rice in this recipe, which can be cooked in the microwave in just 90 seconds! This is not a sponsored post, I just genuinely believe in both of these products and wanted to share :).
