Smoky Lentil Stuffed Sweet Potatoes Recipes

Smoky lentil stuffed sweet potatoes are a vegan and gluten-free main with a one-two punch of plant protein and fiber. Serve these stuffed spuds with a side salad for a healthy and hearty weeknight dinner.


In this recipe, red lentils are cooked in a mixture of shallots, garlic, tomato paste, smoked paprika, and crushed red pepper flakes to infuse them with an abundance of spice and flavor. Because the taste is the best counter to the sweetness of the spuds, I like this mix. Next, chopped walnuts are stirred into add crunch and texture (plus a few heart- and brain-healthy fats!) .
