1 1/2 cups cooked quinoa
2 tablespoons dried cranberries
2 tablespoons of walnuts
2 tablespoons pepitas
1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper
1/2 cup chickpeas, optional

1. ​Scrub and wash your sweet potatoes. Pierce your potato and microwave on high for 5-7 minutes or until tender.
2. Combine your grains in a large bowl, I used quinoa but rice would be great too.
3. Add walnuts, dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds, salt and black pepper and mix.
4. You can also add vegetable protein (optional) chickpeas or white beans.
5. Stuff the sweet potatoes and drizzle with your favorite sauce. I love using creamy garlic tahini sauce.
