Loaded Sweet Potatoes with Baked Beans

It just doesn’t get better than this! All your favourites combined into one dish. Loaded sweet potatoes stuffed with Instant Pot Baked Beans and topped with ridiculously easy and delicious guacamole! The guac is optional, but come on. πŸ™‚ If you’re not a guacamole or avocado fan, try it topped with some cashew cream instead. This dish really just screams comfort food, yet it’s made using healthy and wholesome ingredients. Plus, it’s vegan, oil free, gluten free and virtually fat free, with the added bonus of being high in protein and iron. There’s really no reason not to try this! πŸ™‚

How do you make loaded sweet potatoes?

Start with the beans and dump all the ingredients into your Instant Pot to get those going. Then preheat your oven and scrub the potatoes, place them on a tray with parchment paper, piercing them all around to prevent them from exploding in the oven. Bake until fork tender, about 45 minutes.

Once you have both the beans and the potatoes going, you can prepare any additional toppings you’d like. My favourite way to top these is with my 3 Minute Easy Guacamole but you can also go for some Dairy Free Sour Cream (Cashew Cream) or salsa! Don’t forget some garnishes, like cilantro, red chili flakes or even some Vegan Parmesan Cheese, if desired. Yum!

Once the potatoes and beans are ready, slice the potatoes lengthwise without cutting all the way through. Stuff them with as many of the delicious baked beans as possible!! Then top them with a few of your favourite garnishes. Now DIG RIGHT IN! So So GOOD!

Ingredients

  • 4 sweet potatoes scrubbed

For the Beans

  • 1 cup (200g) dry navy/white beans soaked overnight
  • 2 cups low sodium vegetable broth
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp salt

3 Minute Easy Guacamole (Optional Garnish)

    Instructions

    • Dump all your baked bean ingredients into your Instant Pot, give it a stir and lock the lid. Make sure the valve is in the sealing position and set to high pressure for 40 minutes. (It wll take about 10 minutes to build pressure before counting down.) Once the timer is complete, you may quick release the steam valve.
    • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F and line a baking tray with parchment paper. Pierce your sweet potatoes using a fork or knife 4-5 times around the potato. (This will prevent them from exploding in the oven.) Then bake for 45 minutes.
    • While both the beans and potatoes are cooking, prepare your guacamole if using.
    • When the sweet potatoes are cooked, remove from the oven and slice them open, without cutting all the way through. Then serve with a generous scoop of baked beans inside and top with guacamole, cashew cream or salsa. Enjoy!
