You can't go wrong with these delicious vegan loaded sweet potatoes. The lentil filling is super quick and easy to put together, and you can get creative with the sauces you add on top! I love a bit of tahini, avocado and vegan yogurt sauce!


Units Scale
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1,5 cups of canned lentils
  • 1,5 cups of spinach
  • 1/2 spring onion
  • 5 sundried tomatoes
  • 1/2 tsp ground pepper
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
  • Tahini sauce
  • 1 avocado smashed with evoo & salt
  • Coconut yogurt sauce


  1. Preheat the oven to 220 degree Celsius.
  2. Make a couple of cuts to the sweet potatoes, and bake for approx. 1 hour, or until you can easily insert a knife through. Cut them in half.
  3. While the potatoes are baking, prepare the lentil filling. Chop the spring onions, spinach & sundried tomatoes. Add the veggies to a bowl and mix with the lentils, ground pepper, salt and evoo. Combine well.
  4. Lay the sweet potatoes on a tray or plate. Smash the center a bit with a fork.
  5. Add the lentil filling, drizzle of tahini sauce, avocado smash and yogurt sauce on top.
  6. Eat immediately!


  • The sweet potatoes have to be baked until they are nice and soft. You should be able to insert a knife very easily through. If you would like to cut down on baking time, half the potatoes before baking 😊
  • If you make a big amount to eat later, I recommend storing the ingredients separate in individual airtight containers in the fridge for up to 4 days. If possible, don't add the evoo to the lentil filling until before you eat it, to avoid the spinach getting soggy. This will also allow you to heat up the sweet potatoes before eating if you like!
  • If you've already assembled and have leftovers, you can store it in the fridge in an airtight container, and eat within the next couple of days!
