Beans and Greens Stuffed Sweet Potato

You remember my braised greens with bacon and apple vinegar from a week or so ago — right? You might also remember the last time I cooked a sweet potato, it was topped with little baby marshmallows.  

This time around we just took the braised greens from earlier in the week, heated up some cannelloni beans, combined them together well and nestled the mixture inside a warm baked sweet potato.

It makes for a meal full of vitamin K, fiber, B6 and potassium. Quick, easy, and satisfying!

E.A.T. local E.A.T. well


  1. These sweet potatoes look stunning! We do a similar sweet potato stuffed with black beans and broccoli--this sounds like a great way to mix it up.

    1. beans and broccoli? Well you can't go wrong there!

  2. Holy shit. I'm hungry now...

  3. I really like this idea, never thought to put greens inside a sweet potato like this. Looks delicious.

  4. I'm catching up on blog reading today so I've seen dozens of recipes (which are all making me very hungry), but I LOVE this idea! So much that I'm making it this week, maybe even tonight. Thanks!
