Chickpea Curry Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

I am craving hearty dishes this time of the year but I still want them to he healthy for me, so I like to make things like these stuffed sweet potatoes!  This time I stuffed them with a spicy chickpea curry that reminds me of one that I like to order at a local Indian restaurant, it is so good!  This dish contains fiber, protein and is all veggies so you can feel good about eating it!

  1. Preheat the oven to 375F degrees.  Line a sheet pan with parchment, and place the sweet potatoes cut side down on the pan.  Place in the oven and roast for about an hour until they are tender.
  2. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, combine the avocado oil, onion, spices and garlic and cook over medium heat for a few minutes until the onions have softened.  Add the tomatoes, water and salt and bring to a simmer.   Cook for about 20 minutes until the tomatoes are falling apart and the flavors have combined.  Add the chickpeas, and cook for a few minutes, then take off the heat and add the lemon juice and cilantro.
  3. Once the sweet potatoes have finished cooking, place them cut side up on a plate, and spoon the curry over them.  Enjoy!
