Loaded sweet potato jackets with bean and beetroot tzatziki

Category: food

Looking for a healthy, mid-week winter meal for the whole family? Try these loaded sweet potato jackets with bean and beetroot tzatziki, from the Stockland Winter of Food magazine. 


1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.

2. Place the sweet potatoes on a baking tray and rub all over with 2 tbsp oil, season with salt and pepper. Place in the oven and roast until soft to the tip of a knife, for about one hour, turning halfway.

3. Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, toss the chickpeas with the remaining 2 tbsp oil, spices, and some salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a rimmed baking tray and spread out in an even layer.

4. After the potatoes have been in the oven for 30 minutes, place the tray with the chickpeas in the oven alongside them. Roast until the chickpeas are crisp and golden brown, about 20-30 minutes.

5. Combine the Greek yoghurt, lemon juice, beetroot, half the dill, and a pinch of salt and pepper to taste in a mixing bowl. Stir to combine, cover, and chill until ready to serve.

6. Remove the potatoes and chickpeas from the oven when ready. Let the potatoes cool briefly before cutting in half and carefully opening up with your fingers.

7. Halve, pit, peel, and dice the avocado.

8. Place the sweet potatoes on a platter and fill them with chickpeas and beetroot tzatziki. Top with avocado, yoghurt, the remaining dill, and some mint.
