Broccoli, Shallot, Feta & Sun Dried Tomato Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Vegetarian Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

While I am more than ready to say goodbye to Winter, I’m not quite ready to let go of the Winter staple, the sweet potato!

Vegetarian Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

I have been making some variation of these Stuffed Sweet Potatoes for over a decade! Since the sweet potatoes are cooked in the microwave, it’s the perfect last-minute, weeknight meal!

The sweetness of the sweet potatoes is perfectly counterbalanced by the heat from the red pepper flakes and the tang of the goat’s milk feta. Easy, vegetarian, and healthy!

So flavorful you won’t even miss the meat!

Honestly, I care more about the cheese than the meat! Which is why I totally failed as a vegan. Yeah…I need cheese in my life. Francophile!

Larger sweet potatoes make a wonderful vegetarian main course or you can serve with a chicken breast! This one is delicious!

I LOVE sun-dried tomatoes but I don’t cook with them very often because Hubs isn’t a fan. But these potatoes were perfect, because I just added them to mine and not his! Happy Lindsey!

The sweetness of the sweet potatoes is perfectly counterbalanced by the heat from the red pepper flakes and the tang of the goat’s milk feta. Easy, vegetarian, and healthy!

Ingredients

  • 2 sweet potatoes (as large as you like)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cups broccoli, chopped into small florets
  • 1 large shallot, thinly sliced
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced (~2 tablespoons)
  • 2 large pinches kosher salt
  • freshly cracked pepper
  • 1 large pinch of red pepper flakes (you can always add more later)
  • 3 sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1 oz goats milk feta cheese

Instructions

  1. Heat a medium cast iron pan or skillet over medium heat until hot. Add olive oil, and swirl to coat the pan. Add broccoli, shallot, and garlic to the pan; sauté until the broccoli is crunchy-tender and the shallots are limp, stirring constantly. Add the salt, pepper and red pepper flakes and stir to distribute evenly. Stir in the sun-dried tomatoes and remove from heat.
  2. While the broccoli cooks microwave the sweet potatoes on high for 8 minutes, flipping half way through. Cook until they are soft and give easily when gently squeezed.
  3. Split the sweet potatoes down the center and spoon half the broccoli mixture into each. Sprinkle on the feta cheese and serve hot!

      Mmmm cheese! I would be an unhappy person without cheese. Truth. I do live in ATL, so it’s definitely warming up! It’s hit 80 recently!

      Thanks, Christin! I love sweet potatoes…and for some reason they just seem so much more delicious than regular potatoes.

    I was sifting through some of the comments on my blog a while back and came across yours, and I remember really enjoying your content so I decided to check back! And of course, I’m not disappointed at all :) this looks fantastic. I’ve been craving yams all this month (and have had my fill of them, too) so I know what I’ll do with the next batch. Cheers!
