Honey-Lime Quinoa Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Honey-Lime Quinoa Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Did anyone try my honey-lime tacos last week? If you didn’t here’s another chance to get all those amazing flavors but in stuffed sweet potato + quinoa form. It really doesn’t get much healthier or tastier than this. These stuffed sweet potatoes are awesome! My entire family loved them, yes kids and meat loving husband included. If you are going to omit meat you’ve got to make up for it flavor-wise right? These vitamin and nutrient packed sweet potatoes are full of the perfect blend of flavors. I mean really, isn’t the honey and lime combination good on almost anything? I love how the honey-lime enhances the sweetness of the potatoes without being overbearingly sweet thanks to the tart and tang of the lime.
