Stuffed and Baked Sweet Potato Recipe: Paleo, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, and Delicious

Baked Sweet Potato Recipe The NTA

This Stuffed and Baked Sweet Potato Recipe will have your tastebuds swimming in bliss. Brooke Libby, NTP took the combination of sweet, tangy, and savory and turned it into a nutrient-dense masterpiece. This dish encompasses a rainbow of phytonutrients. Plus, who doesn’t love any opportunity to use Diane Sanfillipo’s Balanced Bites Seasoning? Libby says on her website, that it takes about an hour start to finish, but the majority of that time is spent waiting for the potatoes to cook in the oven. The actual hands-on time is more like 15-20 minutes.

Stuffed and Baked Sweet Potato Recipe

by Brooke Libby

Serves 4 Sweet Potatoes

Ingredients:

  • + 4 sweet potatoes, on the larger side
  • + 1 pound ground turkey
  • + 1 large onion, diced
  • +1 large zucchini, diced
  • +1 tbsp Italian seasoning blend (I use Balanced Bites)
  • + black pepper, granulated garlic and sea salt to taste (I use 1/2 tablespoon Balanced Bites Trifecta blend)
  • + 1 tbsp coconut oil or ghee
  • + 1 tsp olive oil (Kasandrinos is a favorite in our home)

Lemon Tahini Drizzle:

  • + 1/4 cup tahini
  • + 1/4 cup olive oil
  • + juice from 1/2 a lemon
  • + 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • + granulated garlic, black pepper and sea salt to taste (I use Balanced Bites Trifecta blend)
  • + water to thin out consistency if needed

Toppings:

  • 1/4 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds

Directions:

1. Preheat your oven to 400°F.

2. Using a fork, stab the sweet potatoes all around several times and lightly rub with olive oil. Roast them directly on the top oven rack for 50-60 minutes, until very tender. A fork should go through very easily with no resistance. (place some foil on the bottom oven rack to catch any drippings.)

3.While the potatoes are cooking, melt some coconut oil  or ghee in a large cast iron skillet. Add the onion and sauté them until they are mostly translucent.

4. Mix in the ground turkey, Italian seasoning, granulated garlic, salt, and pepper.

5. When the turkey is thoroughly cooked (no more pink), add in the zucchini and let cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.

6. While the turkey is cooking, put all of the ingredients for the Lemon Tahini Drizzle in the blender and mix completely. Add some warm water if necessary until a consistency that allows you to pour it out is reached.

7. Remove the potatoes from the oven, and carefully cut in half the long way. Leave the ends intact though. This creates a “potato boat” as Cal calls them in our house!

8. Gently push open the sides of the potato to make room for the stuffing. Be careful not to rip it open completely (not the end of the world if you do, it just wont look as pretty).

9. Place the turkey mixture inside the potato boat and top with a healthy amount of lemon tahini drizzle, pomegranate seeds and sunflower seeds.

Enjoy!
