Chickpea Curry-Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Chickpea Curry-Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
Makes: 4  servings Prep 20 mins Total Time 1 hr 10 mins

Ingredients

  • 4 sweet potatoes (about 2 1/2 pounds total), scrubbed
  • 4 teaspoons  canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon  minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons  minced ginger
  • 4 teaspoons  curry powder
  • 1 14.5-ounce can no-salt-added tomatoes
  • 1 cup  light coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon  brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon  apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon  salt
  • 6 cups  loosely packed baby spinach
  • 1 15.5-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 cup  roughly chopped cilantro, plus leaves (optional)

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees . Place sweet potatoes on a rimmed baking sheet lined with aluminum foil and bake until soft, 60 to 70 minutes.

2. When sweet potatoes have about 15 minutes left to cook, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and ginger and cook until fragrant but not browned, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add curry powder and cook until fragrant, 15 to 30 seconds. Add tomatoes, coconut milk, brown sugar, vinegar and salt and bring to a simmer, scraping up any spices from bottom of skillet. Add spinach and cook, stirring occasionally, until bright green and wilted, about 3 minutes. Stir in chickpeas and cook until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes.

3. Split sweet potatoes down the middle and push sides to open them up. Stir chopped cilantro into chickpea mixture and ladle over sweet potatoes. Garnish with cilantro leaves if desired.
