Total time: 1 hr, 20 min
Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 1 hr
Serves: 4


  • As needed cooking spray
  • 4 sweet potatoes, medium-sized
  • 1 white onion, small, thinly sliced
  • 3/4 tsp. garlic, minced
  • 8 oz. mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 jalapeño, small, stemmed, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper, ground
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt, divided
  • 1 can no-salt-added garbanzo beans, (15-oz), drained (liquid reserved) and rinsed
  • 1 ripe, Fresh California Avocado, seeded and peeled

California Avocado-Cilantro Coulis

  • 1 ripe, Fresh California Avocado, seeded and peeled
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro, (about 2 oz.), stems removed
  • 1/2 jalapeño, small, stemmed, seeded and finely chopped
  • 5 Tbsp. garbanzo bean liquid
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F and spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Use a fork to poke each sweet potato and place on sheet. Bake for 45 minutes.
  2. Spray a large non-stick pan with cooking spray and place over medium heat. Sauté the onions for 5 minutes, then add the garlic, mushrooms, jalapeño, black pepper, and half the sea salt. Continue to cook 5 minutes until mushrooms are browned and a thin liquid coats the bottom of the pan. Add the garbanzo beans, lower the heat and cook 3-4 minutes to heat slightly. Set aside until ready to assemble potatoes.
  3. When potatoes have finished baking, remove from oven and let cool 10 minutes (or until cool enough to touch). Make a cut into top of potato, large enough to remove the inside but keep skin intact, and scoop out three-quarters of the sweet potato puree. Place the sweet potato puree into a medium bowl. Mash together with 1/2 avocado and remaining sea salt. Stuff mixture evenly back into the potato skins.
  4. Return the onion, mushroom and garbanzo bean mixture to medium heat for 3 minutes, then spoon evenly over each potato.
  5. Dice remaining avocado and sprinkle on top of each sweet potato.
  6. Add optional 2-4 Tbsp. or to taste of California Avocado-Cilantro Coulis if desired.
