Chana Masala Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Ingredients:

  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • ½ cup spinach or other dark leafy green
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp grated fresh ginger
  • ½ tbsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • ¼ tsp ground cayenne pepper
  • ½ tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp garam masala
  • ½ – ¾ cup crushed tomatoes
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 cups cooked chickpeas
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • splash of lemon juice

Directions:

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-low heat. Add onion and sauté until translucent. Add garlic and ginger and continue sautéing to briefly cook, 1-2 more minutes.

Add the spices to the onions and fully coat them, cook 1-2 minutes longer. Stir in the tomatoes, water and chickpeas. Simmer for 10 minutes, adding more water if you prefer. Turn off the heat and stir in the salt and lemon juice.

Preheat oven to 425°F. Prick the sweet potatoes several times with a knife or fork. Place the sweet potatoes on an oven-safe pan or dish and bake for one hour, or until very soft inside. (You could also grill or microwave them.)

Split the sweet potatoes open lengthwise, stuff with spinach and top with chana masala.
