These stuffed sweet potatoes are the bomb. No exaggerating. We have a flavor party going on that involves a very special, very addicting, very-lick-the-mason-jar kind of miso dressing. It’s the kind of combo that makes your tastebuds go 💥 boom.💥

Do you meal prep? Are you on that bandwagon? I feel like EVERYONE is doing it these days and I totally see why. There’s something amazing about opening the fridge and not having to make up your mind. Because thankfully, your super productive earlier self already did all of the work and now your present self gets to enjoy the benefits.

My diet has been… shall we say?… less than fantastic while I’ve been home this past week. Out of laziness – I avoided the grocery store at all costs. I’ve depleted my parents’ frozen pizza stash (and dudes, it was a big stash). Now I’m making the most of my leftover Thai food. Basically, I’ve been living that bachelor life. Not cooking was kind of nice at first… and I’m happy to report that humans can, in fact, happily survive on pizza. But I’m ready to be home with my dude and I’m ready to start eating real meals like this again. ⬇️⬇️⬇️

SO – let’s talk about these sweet potatoes. For starters, they’re incredibly easy to make. It involves preheating the oven and baking the sweet potatoes and chickpeas simultaneously. Meanwhile, you can cook the quinoa and mix up the dressing. Everything is ready almost at the same time, and then you assemble. Stuff the sweet potatoes with fluffy quinoa. Top with crispy chickpeas. Drizzle with that blow-your-mind miso dressing. Pro tip – keep this sauce on hand in case of emergencies – like, last minute salad dressing needs or pouring over roasted veg bowls.

And BOOM – meal prep just got an upgrade.
