This loaded sweet potatoes with BBQ lentils and spicy slaw recipe is one of my favorite’s. It is easy
It seems to me that when you see the pictures, you are going to say what is this ?! The idea of red cabbage and sweet potato probably doesn’t sound as good as it tastes. But believe me, it does. The sweetness of the sweet potatoes goes perfectly well with the sweet and spicy flavor of the bbq lentils. And the smokiness of the chipotle is a dream with the crunch or the red cabbage.
It is delicious and is very easy to prepare. This recipe I sort off copied it from a restaurant. And I say sort of because, after the “thousand and one” changes I made to it, I think now it’s my creation.

LOADED SWEET POTATOES WITH BBQ LENTILS AND SPICY SLAW
Loaded sweet potatoes with spicy slaw
- 4 sweet potatoes
- 5 cups purpule cabbage 1 cabbage head
- 1 1/2 cup cooked black beans or one can
- 1/3 cup Veganaise
- juice of half a lemon
- 1/4 or 1/2 teaspoon chipotle powder
- 1/4 cup barbecue sauce

- Pre heat the oven to 375 degrees. Cut the sweet potatoes in half, and put the cut side down. Put them in the oven and leave them there until smooth when pinched with a fork. When the potatoes are cooked, turn off the oven and leave them there until they are a bit caramelized. Do not take your eyes off them, you do not them to burn. In a skillet heat the beans with bbq sauce. Adjust salt and pepper, taste them, I will sometimes add a bit of chipotle while being heated. mean while slice as thin as possible the cabbage, I use the slicing disk of a food processor. Mix veganaise with lemon juice, a pinch of salt and chipotle powder. Mix cabbage with dressing just before serving. To prepare the sweet potatoes add one or two tablespoons of beans on the center and top with the cabbage salad.
