This is your new favorite vegetarian entree! It is very easy to make and requires only a small number of ingredients, and minimal cooking skills. It looks beautiful and tastes even better!
It’s very simple – all you do is roast the sweet potatoes in the oven in a bit of olive oil, then fill them with chickpeas and dust them with feta, salt, and a sprinkling of chili flakes. After another 10 minutes in the oven, top with chopped cilantro or parsley.
I used purple and orange sweet potatoes because the purple ones were too pretty to pass up. The orange have a softer, sweeter taste and the purple are less sweet and more starchy.
RECIPE: Oven-Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Chickpeas and Feta
