protein to go with sweet potato?


Quote  |  Reply
I wonder if I'll get replies soon enough as it's 8pm and I'm looking for dinner options... but while I sort through Google's responses, I'll give this a shot:

I have a sweet potato. I want to eat it for dinner, and need an idea for how to make a balanced meal out of it! (read: add protein) What goes well and is easy to put together and tastes good?

Thanks!

OOH!  OOH! 

Ok, this is my FAVORITE meal ever and I've been dying to share.

Do you have Fage brand greek yogurt where you are?  If not, use non-fat plain yogurt.  I put a half cup of it on top of a baked sweet potato and it's like sour cream.  Top with salt and you're golden.  Hope you like it, I think it's awesome, and really filling.

Unfortunately I had already figured something out ... and don't have any plain yogurt on hand... but I'll try that next time, it sounds good! I could have also probably used fat-free sour cream?

I made fries (baked) out of the sweet potato, and had a tuna burger and some avocado. It was really good!

Thanks for the advice!
