If you’re a sweet potato addict like me, you’re going to love this recipe! Sweet potatoes are perfect for stuffing with healthy ingredients like quinoa, kale, and crispy chickpeas. This recipe has a few little shortcuts that help this meal come together in a flash! 

Stuffed Sweet Potato Shortcuts

  • I cook my sweet potatoes in the microwave, so they’re ready in 10 minutes.
  • I use Path of Life’s Quinoa & Kale, which is ready in just 4 minutes.
  • I toast my chickpeas on the stovetop, so they get crispy in about 8 minutes.

How to Cook Whole Sweet Potatoes

For this recipe, I prefer to cook the sweet potatoes in the microwave. You could also roast them in the oven, but they’ll take much longer to cook. To prepare sweet potatoes in the microwave, pierce the skin with a fork 3-4 times on each side. Then place the potatoes on a microwave-safe plate and cover with a damp paper towel. Cook for 6 minutes, then rotate the potatoes and continue to cook for 3-4 minutes or until the potatoes have softened.

What is the Path of Life Quinoa and Kale?

Path of Life makes a variety of frozen foods, including this delicious kale and quinoa blend! I love it because it cooks quickly in the microwave and it’s lightly seasoned. It works perfectly in this recipe but you can also use it as an easy side dish with your favorite protein! I’ve talked about Path of Life’s (not so fried) Riced Cauliflower Blend because it’s delicious in this kimchi fried rice! I love that all of their products make healthy eating more convenient.

Make-Ahead Tips

If you love meal prepping you can easily make the sweet potatoes in advance. Simply reheat in the microwave before serving! If you have leftover quinoa from the Path of Life Quinoa & Kale blend, you can store it in the refrigerator and reheat in the microwave. I don’t recommend trying to prepare the chickpeas in advance, as they won’t stay crispy.
