These loaded sweet potato boats make an awesome, nutritionally well-rounded vegan snack or meal. It’s a really easy recipe to throw together and it combines heaps of flavour and nutrients.
Using sweet potatoes for the base provides extra fibre, calcium, iron and potassium compared to white potatoes. They also provide a good source of beta-carotene (which gives sweet potatoes their orange colour and is the plant based equivalent of vitamin A).
The jackfruit and chickpea topping provides a combination of carbohydrate and protein, avocado (which we sing the praises of regularly!) brings healthy fats, red cabbage is rich in anthocyanins (a powerful antioxidant), and pepitas add magnesium and iron. We’ve also added in our Vegan Nutritional Yeast Flakes which add a delicious savoury flavour and heaps of essential micronutrients, including all of your B vitamins, calcium, iron, zinc and potassium.
