Lunch Box: Vegan Chickpea and Beetroot Loaded Sweet Potatoes


Here is a twist on the humble baked potato and beans!

If you were wondering why sweet potatoes are considered to be a better option than their white potato cousin, it's because they are packed with more vitamins while being less calorific, so all in all, they give the better pay off!

Aside from that, they are a bit yum.

While it takes a bit of time to roast potatoes, this is actually an easy peasy recipe for lunch. I pop my potatoes in the oven in the evening while I'm prepping dinner and that way it only takes 10 minutes to put together the chickpea stuffing in the morning (if that!). Then, all you need is a box for your potato and a box for your chickpeas and you're good to go.
