Quick guacamole roasted stuffed sweet potatoes


  • 1 avocado
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 large handful cilantro, chopped
  • salt & pepper to taste




  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Place the potatoes in the oven and let cook until tender, about 40-50 minutes.
  • While the potatoes cook, prepare the stuffing
  • Heat the avocado oil in a non-stick pan on medium-high heat.
  • Add the onions and let cook on medium heat for 4-5 minutes.
  • Next, add the garlic, quinoa, black beans, tomato paste, vegetable broth, chipotles, chilli powder, cumin powder, salt and pepper and mix all together.
  • Let cook until no liquid is remaining.
  • Once the sweet potatoes are cooked, remove them from the oven, cut in half, and scoop out the potato to make space for the stuffing. (I scoop out about 1/2 the potato and leave the rest)
  • Stuff the potatoes with the quinoa filling and top with  cheese.
  • Place in the oven under the broiler for 1 minute, or back in the oven at 400 degrees for 2-3 minutes, until the cheese is melted.
  • To make the quick guacamole, scoop the avocado into a bowl with the lime juice, cilantro, salt and pepper and mash together.
  • Scoop some guacamole on top of each potato to serve.
