I am so excited to share these tuna apple stuffed sweet potatoes with you. A variation of this dish used to be my favorite go to meal when I was studying biology in Stockholm. Of course the version they offered at the cafeteria used regular potatoes and most likely sour-cream etc. I used to almost eat this every day and was obsessed with it. So I decided to recreate it and OMG! It is soooo delicious. I cannot wait for you to try it. It is also really easy and quite fast to whip up and therefore makes for the perfect quick healthy and delicious dinner recipe.
The tuna apple stuffed sweet potatoes features the following health promoting ingredients:
- Sweet potatoes: rich in fiber, vitamins and minerals
- Coconut yogurt: probiotics for gut gut health
- Tuna: Omega 3 fatty acids and great protein source
- Lemon, apples, onions and herbs: Vitamins and phytochemicals
My husband and I use all of the tuna dip for just the two of us but depending how much stuffing you use you might be able to use it for more than 2 people. Or even better have leftovers for the next day to either enjoy another round of stuffed sweet potatoes or simply as a dip with sliced vegetables.
Sweet potatoes come in a wide variety and I encourage you to play around with different kinds. If you don’t like them too sweet opt for white sweet potatoes as they are the least sweet. Sweet potatoes differ in size. Some of them are gigantic. So for this recipe I try to go for the smaller ones, that way they cook faster and are the perfect portion for one person. If potatoes are not a problem for you you could also use regular potatoes for this dish.
As always feel free to adjust the recipe to your personal preference by using more or less onion and apple, adding other veggies like celery to the mix and/or your favorite spice blend.
