Meatless Monday: Southwestern Stuffed Sweet Potatoes


Southwestern Stuffed Sweet Potatoes {Gluten Free, Vegan}

 My Meatless Monday recipe this week was inspired by my blogger and foodie friend, Suz from Suzlyfe.  Last week she posted Sweet Potato Nachos and they looked so fantastic that I just had to make some sort of super sweet potato concoction to satisfy my craving. 

Similar to Suz, I made my sweet potatoes with a southwestern flare but instead of slicing them into chips, I went the lazy route and twice baked them instead 😉 

These twice baked, southwestern stuffed sweet potatoes would be perfect for lunch or even a light dinner.  They are both gluten free and vegan but are still chock full of healthy protein, fat and fiber.  Southwestern Stuffed Sweet Potatoes {Gluten Free, Vegan} Southwestern Stuffed Sweet Potatoes {Gluten Free, Vegan}
