Sweetly Spiced Chickpea Twice Baked Potatoes

 

This recipe will fill you with wholesome, yet light flavors. Prep, cook, eat in one setting! You can even cook ahead for easy meal planning. It’s truly the best weeknight dish you can make this spring!

 

 

Are you an awesome meal planner? Then this dish is perfect for you! Simply grab those sweet potatoes, or what some may call yams. Bake at 400° F for about 1 hour cleaned and halved. Don’t forget about those spicy Kabuli! Chickpeas, toss them in cumin, paprika, chili powder, cayenne pepper, and salt. Let them roast on the top shelf as the potatoes are baking. And voilà, you are two steps away to eating this simply, easy meal!

 

 

The flavors meld together to make a simple savory taste. The spice isn’t too over powering as the sweet potato gives every bite a sweet flavor. Oh, what’s that? That nutty taste? It’s the easy, peasy frozen beans! They’re toasted for a slightly, spicy crunch and bite. Your mouth will become delighted with fireworks in every bite, chew, and swallow. Please don’t worry as this dish isn’t too spicy. But if spice is your thing, throw in an extra pinch of chili powder to your roasted chickpeas.

 

ENJOY!
