Let’s talk New Years and how these loosely considered Thai Stuffed Sweet Potatoes are going to completely change your life. The start of a new year usually begins with the idea of starting fresh and the plan that you can do better, eat better, and feel better. And while these sweet potatoes might not be the total solution – they are completely stuffed with vegetables and finished with the most delicious peanut/Thai- chili sauce. The next best part – they can be made way in advance! These are perfect to grab for office lunches or when you simply do not have time to whip up a meal. I top my stuffed potatoes with fresh cilantro, edamame, crunchy carrots, green onion, and salty peanuts. Add a squeeze of lime and a big drizzle of the peanut sauce and these will easily disappear!
