Roasting the main ingredients together in the oven makes these chickpea spinach stuffed sweet potatoes an easy vegan multi-tasking recipe. They are finished with a drizzle of tahini.

Ingredients

  • 4 medium sweet potatoes
  • 115 ounce can chickpeas
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper plus more for serving
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 cup baby spinach, roughly chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • Flaky sea salt for serving
  • Crushed red pepper flakes for serving

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Prick the sweet potatoes with a fork and roast for 45-55 minutes until they are just tender. Let the sweet potatoes cool for 5-10 minutes before halving them lengthwise and fluffing their flesh with a fork.
  2. While the sweet potatoes are roasting, make the crispy chickpeas. Drain and rinse the chickpeas. Pat them dry with paper towels. Remove any loose outer skins. In a small bowl, toss the chickpeas with 1/2 tablespoon olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper and cumin. Spread them in a single layer on a parchment paper-lined sheet pan. Bake for 25 – 35 minutes until crisp and browned, gently shaking the pan about halfway through cooking.
  3. While the sweet potatoes and chickpeas are roasting, heat the remaining olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Sauté the spinach until the leaves start to wilt, about 2 minutes. Add the garlic and remaining salt and pepper, and continue cooking until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  4. Top each of the sweet potato halves with chickpeas and spinach. Drizzle with tahini and sprinkle with flaky sea salt and red pepper flakes before serving.
