The Best Stuffed Sweet Potato Skins Recipe Ever

A bold statement I know, but I'm pretty sure these are the best stuffed sweet potatoes ever. They are absolutely delish, so filling and actually kind of healthy! I adapted the recipe from this one (her photos are so much better than mine!) to give it a more Mediterranean feel because I love the flavours and to be in with a chance of winning a cruise (why not!),  you can find out more about how you can enter too here.

I discovered these during my vegetarian endeavour to discover new recipes with pretty basic ingredients that I could whip up after work, and they will definitely be a firm fixture in our diet in the future. Just maybe with a little less cheese next time...

Stuffed Sweet Potato Skins Recipe 
Serves 2-3

  • 2 medium or large sweet potatoes
  • A glug of olive oil tablespoons butter
  • Half a red onion, chopped finely
  • 1 clove of garlic, finely chopped or minced
  • Half a bag of fresh spinach
  • A tablespoon of light sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons of light cream cheese
  • Half a tin of chickpeas
  • Half a ball of Mozzarella cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Bake the sweet potatoes for around 25 minutes (or until cooked through) in preheated oven at 180 degrees.
  2. While they're in the oven, sautee the garlic and chopped onion with the olive oil until translucent. The add the spinach and cook down. Put to one side to cool.
  3. Take out the sweet potatoes and leave to cool for a few minutes. Then scoop out the inside into a bowl, making sure to leave a little around the edges so the potato skins can support themselves. Return the skins to the oven for around 5 minutes so they can crisp up.
  4. Mash the sweet potatoes with the cream cheese and sour cream, then stir in the chickpeas and spinach, and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Add the mixture to the sweet potato skins, tear up mozzarella and add to the top. Finish with a sprinkle of black better and return to the oven for 15 minutes.
  6. Serve piping hot and enjoy! They make a great side dish or main with salad.
