Turkey Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are supposed to be amazing for you. I like them, but I do find them to be a bit sweet. I like to balance the flavour with lemon juice. I adapted this recipe to my own taste.

Ingredients

Serves 2

2 sweet potatoes
250g turkey mince
1tbsp avocado oil
1 medium onion, diced
cayenne pepper to taste
salt and pepper to taste
2 cloves garlic crushed
1/2 tin chopped tomatoes
about 15 round green beans, diced
1 lemon

Method

  • Cut the sweet potatoes in half and coat the cut side in oil. Place face down on a baking tray and bake for about 30 mins at 200ºC until soft
  • Heat the oil in a large frying pan
  • Add the onion and fry until it just begins to go clear
  • Add the turkey mince and fry until there is no more pink bits. You make need to stir fairly frequently and to break up the mince
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer for about 20 mins
  • When the sweet potato is cooked, remove from oven, scoop out the centres, mix with the mince and return to the skins
  • Place them back in the oven for about 5 mins and then serve with 1/2 a lemon per person (squeeze the juice over the sweet potato)


In this photo I served them with crispy kale:
