This simple supper idea is a guaranteed winner. When we filmed this episode, we shot this segment as the first of the day and the rest of the morning I was counting down until I could devour this stuffed sweet potato creation on our lunch break.
What I love so much about this recipe creation is that it is so modifiable.
This recipe is planti-fully delicious and can easily be modified if you choose to add a little lean protein in place of the beans. Sweet potatoes are considered ‘safe’ carbs on the paleo plan so this is truly a one-size-will-fit-everyone-in-the-family recipe.
I also love, for those of us who have the picky eaters in our home, that this recipe invites us to customize our very own potato, choosing our own toppings and sauces.

Stuffed sweet potatoes work great with leftovers or fridge bits. If you have a small amount left from the meals above they’re great to use as sweet potato toppings.
