Air Fried Sweet Potato

This easy air fried sweet potato is stuffed with lentils and vegetables and topped with a savory, creamy, and lightly sweet veggie gravy. 

This recipe uses Dr. McDougall’s Right Foods Organic Lentil Vegetable with Kale Soup to make a delicious filling! The lentils and sweet potato pair perfectly together. The broth from the soup is used to make an easy vegetarian gravy.

Air Fried Sweet Potato

This simple recipe is only 5 ingredients, it's completely plant-based, yet it tastes decadent and refined. Gather your ingredients (listed in the recipe card at the bottom of the page) and let's get cooking.

To cook the sweet potato, pierce it with a fork for ventilation and microwave for 4 minutes. While the potato is cooking, strain the Right Foods Organic Lentil Vegetable with Kale Soup to separate the lentils + veggies from the broth. You'll use both these parts later. Dr. McDougall's soups are award-winning soups with organic, gluten-free, and lower-sodium options.

When the potato is cool enough to touch, cut it lengthwise and scoop out some fo the potato to form a bowl. Mix the potato with the lentils + veggies you just separated. Stuff this mixture into the potato and cook in the air fryer (or oven if you don't have one) until crispy.

While the potato is cooking, put cornstarch and 2 tbsp of broth in a small pot, whisking to create a slurry. Add in the rest of the broth, tahini, and maple syrup, whisking until thick. Now you have a delicious gravy to top your stuffed potato.

Garnish with salt, oregano, rosemary, and pour over the gravy before digging in.
