This vegan sweet potato skillet is the perfect fall food with crispy aromatic baked sweet potatoes, fresh rocket salad and hearty veggie mince with nourishing black beans. It goes especially well with my quick apricot mustard sauce

It works for lunch or dinner and it’s also a nice filling idea for wraps.

For the veggie mince, I use the soy granules by Vantastic Foods* I was given for promotion. You just soak it in veggie broth for 10 minutes and it’s ready to be used like minced meat.

Ingredients for the sweet potato skillet

  • 2 cups/ 100 g soy granules* 
  • 2 cups/ 500 ml veggie broth

How to make the sweet potato skillet

Preheat oven to 200 °C (392° Fahrenheit). Wash the sweet potatoes and cut into wedges. I leave the skins on.

Mix in a big bowl with olive oil and salt, spread on a baking sheet and bake for 20-30 minutes.

In the meantime soak the soy granules in the hot veggie broth for 10 minutes and drain. 

Sauté onions and garlic in olive oil, add the soy granules, the beans, the smoked paprika powder and the thyme and roast at medium heat for about 10 minutes, stirring often. 

Add the sweet potatoes and add soy sauce and chili to taste. 

Serve with fresh rocket salad and apricot mustard sauce.
