img_61161Last night Kathy introduced me to these fabulous Loaded BBQ Sweet Potatoes. Delicious! Paired with a spinach salad and vinaigrette, it was the perfect combination of warm and filling and fresh.  You can’t go wrong with loaded sweet potatoes as a fall supper.  After Thanksgiving weekend, this would be a great recipe to use with turkey leftovers. Stay tuned next week for the sugar free BBQ Sauce and Sriracha Mayo recipes! This recipe is adapted from The Paleo Kitchen.

Ingredients:

  • 4 organic sweet potatoes or yams
  • 1 1/2c shredded organic chicken (or leftover thanksgiving turkey)
  • 1/2 c BBQ sauce
  • 1/3 c shredded organic carrots
  • 1/3 c shredded organic cabbage
  • 1/4 c chopped organic red onion
  • 1/3 c sriracha mayo
  • 1/8 tsp celery seeds
  • 2 chopped organic green onions
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste

Make It:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F. While the oven is heating, wash and dry the sweet potatoes and prick them all over with a fork. Place them on a baking sheet and bake for 35 minutes.
