I’m a carb-lover – there’s no denying it! And when I’m not eating sourdough bread or tacos with my meal, it probably includes a sweet potato 😉


I’ve been making this veggie-stuffed potatoes on REPEAT!

This recipe is so, so simple! Yet the flavors, textures, colors, and overall satisfaction is 10/10!

These stuffed sweet taters also pack in a few servings of veggies and are easy breezy to serve to a crowd or as a treat for yourself. They’re no-fuss, yet feel restaurant worthy =)

This is the kind of meal you should definitely add to your rotation 😉

Note: If you aren’t typically a cauliflower fan, I urge you to try it roasted. Let it brown, caramelize and soften in the oven and it will knock your socks off!!!
