Broccoli Cheese Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

by Chung-Ah Rhee for NatureBox

Anything “stuffed” is always a plus in my book. It’s even better when it’s completely meatless and is loaded with broccoli cheese goodness, enveloped in tender sweet potatoes!

Serves: 4
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: about 55 minutes

Ingredients:
  • 4 sweet potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes, or more to taste
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Directions:
 
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Place a cooling rack inside a baking sheet. Place the potatoes onto the prepared baking sheet and pierce the potatoes all over about 6-12 times with a fork. Place into oven and bake until tender, or about 45-50 minutes. Set aside until cool enough to handle.
 
2. Preheat oven to broil. Heat olive oil in a medium skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic and red pepper flakes and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes. Add broccoli and cook, stirring, until tender, about 3-4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
 
3. Split the sweet potatoes in half and spoon the broccoli mixture into the center. Top with 1-2 tablespoons cheese. Place into oven and broil until cheese has melted, about 2-3 minutes.
