Loaded Sweet Potatoes

What you’ll need: Organic sweet potatoes Himalayan Pink Salt (Sea Salt is fine)

Olive Oil or Olive Oil

cooking spray

Prep oven to 400 degrees

Cut potatoes down their center in halves Lightly grease your pan with oil.

Sprinkle pots with oil & top with pink salt.

Face potatoes flesh side down on the cooking tray and pop in the oven for 35-40 minutes.

Allow pots to cook & check on them ever so often.

The skin should be shriveling more & more during cook time.

These will be super tender & soft making the skin easy to pull off.

Cashew Crema- Vegan Sour Cream

What you’ll need-

1 C raw cashews

½-3/4 C water

¼ tsp salt

1.5 tsp apple cider vinegar

1 tsp lemon juice

Soak one cup of raw cashews in water for 30-40 minutes or overnight if you don’t have a high powered processor. I allowed mine to soak in water during the cook time of my potatoes. Drain the cashews (leave them in about 1/2  cup water) Add apple cider vinegar, salt & lemon juice. Combine & toss in the processor! I wanted my crema to be more of a whipped thicker consistency! Add more water to your mix if aiming for a thinner finish. Then refrigerate!

Toppings-

The possibilities with this dish are endless! You could add diced jalapenos for more spice & crunch or even your favorite vegan cheese shred with vegan butter. I went with more of a simple more “traditional” approach with mine!

Tempeh “Bacun” Bits-

What you’ll need:

4 oz Tempeh slice

Liquid smoke- natural hickory flavor

Add Salt/Pepper to taste

Heat up a pan lightly greased with cooking spray. This is too easy! I simply broke up the slice of tempeh with my hands. Tempeh crumbles easily when broke apart which is perfect for what we are going for. Once the pan is heated (medium to high heat) throw in your bits & add desired amount of liquid smoke (I used quite a bit since I wanted it to pack a punch in smoky flavor) I threw about 7-8 shakes throughout the cooking of my bits. I used tongs to separate/ flip bits until most larger pieces were golden where smaller was a deep brown like color. You want your bits to be pretty crispy. Top with freshly chopped green onions & serve! This recipe is perfect for fall & makes your entire house smell of autumns best aromas.

I’d love any feedback ya’ll have on this recipe! Tag me in your creations by hashtagging #GlossyWalkBlog
