These sweet potatoes are stuffed with veggies and chickpeas, then topped with a delicious and easy peanut sauce! A super healthy, hearty plant based meal.
Preheat oven to 350℉. Poke sweet potatoes with a fork several times and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour or until cooked through.
While sweet potatoes are baking, make the peanut sauce. In a medium bowl, whisk together peanut butter, sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, honey, ginger, lime juice, garlic, and coconut milk until creamy. If sauce seems too thick, add a tablespoon or two of hot water or coconut milk to thin. Set aside.
Heat a medium skillet to medium/high heat. Add the coconut oil. Once hot, add the bell pepper, and cabbage. Sauté for 2-3 minutes, then add the chickpeas and sauté for another couple minutes. Add the spinach and stir until wilted. Remove from heat.
Once sweet potatoes are finished baking, let cool for a few minutes, then cut them down the center, not cutting all the way through, and mash the insides with a fork. Fill with veggie chickpea mixture, and drizzle with peanut sauce. Top with chopped cilantro, scallions, chopped peanuts, and a squeeze of lime!
