Turkey/Beef Salsa Stuffed Sweet Potato

Recipe Note: An amazing dietician by the name of Jo Reis created this glorious recipe. She is a true gem and you’ll also see that she’s a fantastic culinary artist. I gave this recipe my best shot but not sure that I did it justice.

Ingredients

  • Small sweet potatoes
  • 150g of ground turkey or lean beef
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 onion
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • Salsa mix (chopped roma tomatoes / canned 100% tomatoes, beans, onion, capsicum, corn, garlic, salt pepper)
  • low fat cheese
  • coriander/parsley
  • spring onions
  • mixed leafy greens
  • balsamic vinegar

Method

  1.  Pre-heat oven to 200C (400F)
  2. Place sweet potatoes in the oven for about 1 hour and 15 minutes (or poke with a fork and cook in the microwave for 4-5 minutes – but be careful, it can explode in the microwave and get messy)
  3. On a fry-pan, cook your chosen meat with a clove of garlic, 1 onion + 1 tsp. olive oil
  4. Mix the meat with the salsa mix described in the Ingredients above
  5. Cut open the sweet potato and fill it in with the meat and salsa mix
  6. Add the tiny bit of Low Fat Cheese and bake for another 5 minutes
  7. Garnish with coriander/parsley and spring onions
  8. Serve with mixed leafy greens and drizzle balsamic vinegar (if you like it).
