Sweet potatoes get baked until they are sticky sweet and really easy to digest. Then they get stuffed with steamed broccoli and buttery avocado. A sprinkle of salt and pepper brings this simple dish to life!



  • 1 sweet potato
  • 1 cup broccoli floretts
  • 1/2 avocado
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Wrap your sweet potato in foil and place it on a baking tray. Bake until the sweet potato is soft to the touch. This could take 45 minutes to 1 hour 30 minutes depending on the size of your sweet potato.
  2. Once the potato is cooked, add the broccoli to a steamer basket and steam until tender, about 7 minutes. Cut a slit in the sweet potato and stuff the steamed broccoli inside. Top with avocado and salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!
