I want to share with you an easy dinner that is packed with flavour and nutrition.These stuffed sweet potatoes are my go-to after a long day at work, they are comforting, filling and simply delicious. I like to play around with different veggies I have on hand as well as throw in some quinoa or beans for time to time. The combination that I am sharing with you today is my absolute favourite.
