How Sweet it is

I stumbled across this recipe a while back from the how sweet it is blog (check this site out for some seriously awesome dishes) and have been meaning to make it ever since. Thank the baby I finally did. Ah-maz-ing.

stuffed sweet potato

 

So simple, but so delicious. And not to mention filling. I’m not sure if I would consider it dinner or dessert…but hey, it satisfied my craving for both.

Ingredients (for one serving…or 2 if you have the will power to eat only one half…which i do not):

  • one medium yam or sweet potato…whichever you prefer (I went yam – they’re a bit sweeter )
  • 2 tbs goat cheese, plus a sprinkle for topping
  • 1/4 cup seedless red grapes
  • 1 tbs honey, plus a drizzle for topping
  • dash of salt, pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg

Steps:

  • Preheat over to 350 degrees F. Stab the potato a few times with a fork and wrap in tinfoil
  • Bake for 60-90 minutes, or until the potato is soft in the middle
  • Unwrap foil, cut potato in half, and wait until cool enough to handle
  • Put grapes in a baking dish and roast for 30 minutes (you can toss the grapes in some oil and a bit of salt and pepper, but I eliminated this step to cut some of the extra calories from the oil, but I’m sure it would be delish)
  • While grapes are in the oven, scoop out the flesh of the potato into a bowl (try to keep the skin intact as you will be re-stuffing these bad boys)
  • Mix in goat cheese, honey and seasonings and add mixture back into the potato skins
  • Top with additional goat cheese, roasted grapes and a drizzle of honey
