Recipe Notes //

These savory stuffed sweet potatoes with fennel and cabbage slaw are perfect for a simple plant-based weeknight meal that everyone will love! These healthy stuffed sweet potatoes are hearty, super filling, and couldn’t be easier to make! Start by roasting the sweet potatoes of your choice ( I love Japanese yams or purple sweet potatoes) for 40 mins at 450. As the sweet potatoes roast in the oven, prepare this fennel and cabbage slaw. Once the sweet potato is fork-tender, slice the sweet potato open, lightly mash the roasted sweet potato, and top/stuff the sweet potatoes with the fennel and cabbage slaw.
