Chipotle Lentil Stuffed Sweet Potatoes


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • ½ cup green or black lentils
  • 1½ cups vegetable broth
  • 1 minced chipotle in adobo sauce
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons of the adobo sauce, divided
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon coriander
  • guacamole to top!

Instructions

  1. Use a fork to poke holes in sweet potatoes. Then wrap them each in a damp paper towel and microwave until fork tender (about 5-7 minutes). Set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan combine lentils, broth, chipotle, 1 tablespoon of adobe sauce, lime juice, salt, cumin & coriander. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer until cooked but not mushy (about 25 minutes). Once cooked, add 1 more tablespoon of adobe sauce if you want more spice. Season a bit more to taste.
  3. Cut the sweet potatoes in half lengthwise and top with lentils and guacamole.
