Savory Baked Sweet Potato

Savory Baked Sweet Potato | Vegan Living by Danielle


  • 1 small sweet potato
  • 1/2 cup of frozen, shelled edamame (found in with frozen vegetables at Target)
  • 2-3 Tbsp of salsa


  1. Wash sweet potato.
  2. Make a shallow cut length wise on the potato.
  3. Throw sweet potato in the microwave on a microwave-safe plate and hit the potato button, or cook for about 5 minutes. Time length will vary based on size of potato.  
  4. Use oven mitt or towel to remove sweet potato from microwave and set aside to cool slightly.
  5. Put edamame in a microwaveable cup and cover beans with water. Cook for approximately 3 minutes.  
  6. Drain water from cup with edamame in it.
  7. Push the long ends of the potato in to open the sweet potato like a bowl.
  8. Top sweet potato with 1/2 cup edamame and 2-3 Tbsp salsa.
  9. Optional: heat the salsa in the microwave for 20 seconds prior to topping the sweet potato with it. I personally prefer a really warm potato and cool/room-temp salsa.


One serving is approximately 300 calories.
