Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Wash the sweet potatoes and pat dry. Place on a microwave safe plate and pierce with a fork in several places.
  2. Microwave on high for three minutes, then turn them over, and microwave for three more minutes. If they are still hard in the middle, continue to cook them until they are soft throughout.
  3. Prepare the roasted broccoli according to this recipe. You can do this the night before, or the same day, it's up to you. Once the broccoli is done, stir in the 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast if desired.

  4. Cut the cooked sweet potatoes open, and put vegan buttery spread in each one. Top with broccoli, pumpkin seeds, salt, and pepper.

Recipe Notes

*If you want to reduce the fat content, just use less or no vegan buttery spread.

You can bake the sweet potatoes if you prefer. Just place them on a cookie sheet and pierce all over with a fork.

Bake at 400 degrees until tender, about 45-55 minutes, depending on the size of the potatoes.

You can be creative with the toppings - try adding sunflower seeds, chopped red peppers, or sliced green onions.
