What’s the white stuff in the potato? Did you add sour cream or something? It’s not in the recipe.
Sorry- we included it as part of the video recipe! It’s our vegan sour cream (recipe is posted for that under “Dips”).

I love it when people come together and share opinions, great blog, keep it up.
Please do not advise people to use their microwaves, it is horrible for their food. ESPECIALLY VEGGIES! Vegtables should never be cooked over 200 degree or else you are loosing about 90 percent of the nutrients. Look up the MAYO clinic for more information. Also most microwaves start at 400 degrees and most are set at the high temp which is 1400 degrees destroying anything and all nutrients.
Can you please share which Mayo Clinic article you’re referring to? Nutrient loss in vegetables is affected moreso by how much water is used and also how long the vegetable is cooked. See below for 2 science-backed articles.
I love this recipe! Thank you for making life simple! Great channel.
I absolutely LOVE this recipe. I’ve made it a couple of times now and it is always a huge success. I usually prepare it verbatim except that I add shredded chicken for a higher protein content. Thank you for sharing!
yumm that sounds so good!! thanks for sharing the love!
What is the nutritional information?
sorry, we don’t do nutrition calculations! we don’t have the capacity to do it in a way that yields accurate values.
This was delicious! I’m trying to eat more plant-based meals and this was an awesome start! I will definitely be trying more recipes from your site! I also mentioned it on my blog, eartwhimandfire.com .
This looks amazing! I can’t wait to try it this week. And you two are outrageously adorable!
I love sweet potatoes! I love them as fries, fried in my Air Dryer. I love them baked, or most any other way I can think of, but I have never tried stuffing them as this recipe says. Sounds awesome! A “must try” for sure! Thanks for sharing.
You’re so welcome! Hope you give this one a try 🙂
