Sprouting| Recipes That Have Us Drooling

Our sprouts are still growing strong, but we thought we would share some yummy recipes that have us drooling to try. 

We’ve been following and admiring Crunchy Radish for a while now and love their simply philosophy focusing on nutrition, wellness and good tasting food! They have taken a twist on the traditional baked potato, by using a sweet potato with, pinto beans, avocado and a lime crema sauce, seriously can it get any better?

 

Stuffed Sweet Potato with Sour Cream, Sprouts Avocado

 

Fully Loaded Sweet Potatoes 

Serves 3

3 Medium Sweet Potatoes

1 TBSP Coconut Oil

1 White Onion, thinly sliced

1 ½ Cups Cooked Pinto Beans, if canned then rinsed and salt free

1 TSP Cayenne Pepper

½ TBSP Cumin

2 TBSP Tomato Concentrate

1 Red Bell Pepper, diced

Salt

Optional Garnishes

Lime Crema

Cilantro

Scallions

Micro greens

Avocado

Fresh Lime Juice

 Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Pierce each potato a few times with a fork. Place on a parchment paper-lined sheet pan, and roast for 60-75 minutes or until you can easily pierce the skin with a knife and the inside is soft. Allow to cool slightly before slicing and stuffing. 
  2. While the potatoes cook, warm the coconut oil in a medium sized sauté pan or dutch oven. Add the onions and cook until caramelized, about 10 to 15 minutes. Add 1 tbsp. water to the pan and scrape any brown bits stuck to the bottom in order to deglaze. 
  3. Stir in spices and tomato concentrate and toast for 30 seconds. Add the bell pepper and cook for an additional 3 minutes. Once softened, stir in the beans, add a pinch of salt, and allow the flavors to meld together for 5 minutes.
  4. Slice each potato down the center, almost through to the bottom. Open to reveal the orange flesh. Spoon in the beans and top with selected garnishes. 

Lime Crema

½ Cup Greek Yogurt

Juice of 1 lime

Water if needed

Whisk together lime juice and yogurt. Add water, a tsp. at a time to thin, if desired.
