lunchbox life: stuffed sweet potatoes with spinach, hummus, and feta


Is that you, Fall?  Do I feel your sweet gusts of wind?  There’s not quite a chill in the air, but my favorite season just might be upon us soon.

Alex and I have just watched the most recent episode of Breaking Bad (agggghhh that show is so crazy!), so since I’m at a loss for pleasantries due to shock, I’ll cut right to the chase this evening.

Stuffed Sweet Potatoes with Spinach, Hummus, and Feta

5 small sweet potatoes, individually wrapped in aluminum foil

2 cups fresh spinach

1/2 cup hummus (I prefer Sabra brand)

4 oz. feta cheese, crumbled

salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste

Heat oven to 400 degrees and roast sweet potatoes for about 2 hours (or until tender to the touch with your oven mitt).  Let potatoes cool for at least 30 minutes, or in my case, a whole episode of Breaking Bad.  Take the potatoes out of the foil and make a slice lengthwise on top of the potato, keeping the bottom side intact.  Scoop out the flesh of the potato and place in a medium mixing bowl.  Add the fresh spinach and combine until the spinach begins to slightly wilt.  Next, add the hummus and stir to combine.  Finally, add the feta, salt, pepper, and garlic powder and stir to combine.  Evenly distribute the potato mixture into the potato jackets/skins and serve OR refrigerate for lunches!
