A few weeks ago one of my best friends invited me over for dinner and made these ahhhhhmazing southwestern stuffed sweet potatoes from a recipe she found on pinterest. Ever since that, I have been obsessed with trying different stuffed sweet potato options. Sweet potatoes have been getting a lot of love the last few years and it's not hard to see why. They’re much healthier than potatoes, and have a very flexible flavor that compliments lots of different spices. After dreaming of different stuffed sweet potato options, I finally came up with the holy combination of sweet potatoes + samosas. I can’t wait for you ladies to try this. Those of you that love Indian food, I guarantee this will make your way into your food rotation. If you’ve never tried to cook with some of the traditional Indian spices, now is the time! Sweet Potato Samosas Ingredients 4 sweet potatoes 1 cup of frozen peas green chilis cilantro cumin seeds ginger turmeric garam masala

Notice, the first part of this recipe will require some time. Start this part well before dinner time. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. While your oven is warming up, place the sweet potatoes (unpeeled) in a pan. You will cook the sweet potatoes for one hour. To check if they are ready, stick a fork in the center. If it is mushy, it’s ready. If not, you need a little more cooking time. Once they are mushy, take them out of the oven and put them to the side to cool off.

While the sweet potatoes are cooling off, it’s time to get working on some of the delicious filling that will go into these potatoes. In a skillet, saute the ginger, green chilies, frozen peas, and cilantro. While you wait for the above to finish cooking, begin to work on removing the sweet potato filling. Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise. Then, you will cut the inside of the sweet potato out. Leave about 1/8th on an inch of the sweet potato for the outside, and scoop out what’s left in the center. sweet potato samosas, stuffed sweet potatoes, indian inspired dishes, samosas sweet potato samosas, stuffed sweet potatoes, indian inspired dishes, samosas

After each potato is scooped out into the bowl, put the sautéed mixture on top. Then top with the turmeric, garam masala, and cumin seeds.

Mash and stir until smooth. This process is very close to twice baked potatoes if you’ve ever made those. Once everything is smoothed and combined, refill the sweet potatoes.  Broil for 5 minutes. While they’re broiling, time to make the brown sugar masala glaze. sweet potato samosas, stuffed sweet potatoes, indian inspired dishes, samosas sweet potato samosas, stuffed sweet potatoes, indian inspired dishes, samosas
