Vegan Loaded Sweet Potatoes

Loaded Sweet PotatoThese are my easy delicious loaded sweet potato. They are a hearty meal and packed full of goodness. This meal is jammed pack with antioxidants, and very high in key nutrients and some protein. Sweet Potatoes are high FODMAP, I find I can have a small sweet potato, you could have pumpkin for a lower FODMAP option.

Even if your not feeding 6 people I like to make a big batch of this up and have leftovers in the fridge for the week. The quinoa veggie bean topping is delicious with lots of other meals as well. I particularly like it with soft boiled eggs and salad.
