Baked Sweet Stuffed Potato
Ah, lovely sweet potatoes. Where can I begin… I’ve already proclaimed my palatable delight for these vibrant looking strength boosters! Did you know: Orange colored foods represent overall health and strength? They also reduce the risk of cancer and have more health benefits .
To invite friends over is always a fun idea. Maybe a little stressful when you’re the chef behind the delicious food your pals can munch and gorge over. Aren’t I secretly right?
A near impromptu decision to have friends over for a feast put me in a position where I was left scratching my head as to what to make that my friends haven’t had but would like at the same time - especially my vegetarian friends. Apart from my mum making some delicious Wada Pav ( Patty and Bread), which is a popular Mumbai street food (like a burger); I couldn’t think of anything for my particularly picky vegetarian friend (don’t kill me, I love you. It’s just really hilarious! ).
At this point, I decided to look online for inspiration and came across an intriguingly tempting recipe-Baked Sweet Potato Stuffed with Feta, Olives and Sundried Tomatoes; by Sylvie, the author of the blog Gourmande In The Kitchen. Appealing and enticing, I was quick to finalize my appetizer.
Oh my, what a success this was!
Every ingredient, even though put together held its own individual taste in a beautiful way that melted into a wonderful symphony.
I am surprised by its savory deliciousness. Even my friends who weren’t fans of sweet potato dishes were sold to the warm and comforting yet healthy baked sweet potato accompanied with the most perfectly matched stuffing (most perfect stuffing).
I am not claiming this recipe but I did change the proportions quite a bit and substituted/omitted some ingredients minutely, as the sweet potatoes were large in size; full of sweet potato flesh! Also, I baked my sweet potatoes in this kitchen electronic device called an air fryer, that uses 70% less fat! For more details, scroll to the recipe!

As I crave to eat some more Stuffed Sweet Potato again, but all to myself this time, I am hoping that you all like this recipe too! Thanks to Sylvie once again :D
