All you need is a few simple ingredients for a healthy vegetarian dinner with ingredients that will also help support a good night's sleep.

All you need:

  • 2 (10 oz.) sweet potatoes
  • 1 (10.5 oz.) pkg. Hy-Vee frozen Santa Fe style protein blend
  • Desired toppers such as: plain Greek yogurt, diced avocado, fresh cilantro, or sliced jalapenos
  • Chili powder, for serving
  • Lime wedges, for serving

All you do:

  1. Scrub sweet potatoes and pat dry. Pierce all over with a fork. Place potatoes on a microwave-safe plate and microwave for 7 to 9 minutes.
  2. Remove sweet potatoes from microwave and let cool. Meanwhile, heat protein blend in microwave according to package directions.
  3. Cut potatoes lengthwise, keeping them intact. Pinch sides together to squeeze and open centers. Fluff flesh with a fork and spoon protein blend into each potato. Top with desired toppers. Sprinkle with chili powder and garnish with cilantro, if desired. Serve with lime wedges.
