Cooking Other Savoury

Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Whilst I don’t eat meat my man, whom I love, does. We enjoy a mostly vegetarian diet, but occasionally he’ll have some meat separately with dinner.

I was recently invited to the launch of a new smallgoods product,  Oliving by Hans. This new line of deli inspired meats replaces saturated fat (the bad kind) with olive oil/monounsaturated fats (the good kind). 

It means Jackson can enjoy a wide range of smallgood meats such as ham, salami, chorizo, bacon and turkey, with up to 56% less of the bad stuff. Healthy eating is a core interest of mine, so a healthier alternative is something I am interested in, meat or not!

6 bloggers and I spent the day at the Green Olive at Red Hill (amazing!) to learn about the origins of olive oil, where the journey of Oliving by Hans starts. Modelled on the Mediterranean diet, the new range gives you the benefits of olive oil and cuts down on saturated fat intake.

We sampled wine, olives and a collection of smallgoods cooked in several delicious meals, crafted by celebrity chef Bridget Davis (new girl crush!) 
Whilst I couldn’t partake in some of the tastings, my meat eating compatriots were very impressed with the salami chips, croque monsier, caprese salami stack, chicken pot pie and chorizo haloumi, all crafted using Oliving by Hans products. 
I was provided with some samples of salami, turkey, chorizo, cheese kransky, ham and bacon to take home for Jackson, who thought it was Christmas when I walked in the door. 
After filling my fridge with meat, I was inspired to make Chorizo Stuffed sweet potatoes for dinner that very evening!
Chorizo Stuffed Sweet Potato    serves 4
Sweet Potato 5
Ingredients: 2-3 large sweet potatoes, 2 x Oliving by Hans Chorizo, 1 x 400gm tin kidney beans rinsed, 1 cob of corn with the corn removed, 1 red capsicum (pepper), 1 head broccoli (chopped very small) , 1/2 a cup peas, 1 tablespoon ground cumin, 1 tea spoon ground coriander, 1 teaspoon turmeric, 1 tea spoon ground garlic powder, 200 grams greek yoghurt, pinch of coriander and 1 lime to serve.
  1. Pre heat the oven to 200 deg celcius (390 deg f) and wash and scrub your sweet potatoes. You want to clean the skin as you keep the skins on. Once clean, stab a few holes in the potato with a fork and place in the oven for 45 minutes to soften/cook
  2. Whilst sweet potato is in the oven, dice all your vegetables into very small pieces and set aside. Slice the Chorizo into 1cm thick coin sized pieces. 
  3. In a fry pan over medium heat, fry the Oliving Chorizo for 3-4 minutes or until crispy and hot. Remove and set aside
  4. In the same pan with a small drizzle of olive oil, cook the corn, broccoli, beans, peas and capcisum and add all the ground spices and mix through. Stir and fry for 5-6 minutes or until all vegetables are cooked. 
  5. Add the chorizo to the mix and season with salt and pepper.
  6. Remove the sweet potato and cut either completly down the middle or cut a slit in the top to stuff your filling into
  7. You may need to scoop out some potato in order to fit your mixture in otherwise just stuff your mixture into the potato. Garnish with greek yoghurt, chopped coriander and a squeeze of lime. Enjoy! 

Sweet Potato 3

This was delicious, healthy and Jackson really enjoyed the addition of Chorizo.

    That recipe looks amazing and definitely on my list of “stuff to try not to mess up”! As for deli meat, salami is my weakness. I love it in a sandwich with fresh bread, ham, cheese and spinach. I love wrapping a gherkin up in salami and eating it before the fridge door has shut. I love it on a hot, homemade pizza with pineapple and cheese. My two salami rules are: Don’t think about what I’m eating (because really, if someone described salami to me there’s no way I’d touch it) and don’t buy it often – my waistline can’t afford to eat it too often!

    • Reply Bec October 28, 2014 at 8:12 am

      This new Oliving by Hans salami is 40% less saturated fat so maybe you could! Wrapped around a pickle is my kinda snack mmm

    I am the same as you – a vegetarian with a meat eating man! I had to ask him for his favourite deli meat dish and he instantaneously said anything with chorizo in it… I guess that’s the Italian in him shining through!

  • Reply Dancing Through Sunday October 8, 2014 at 11:52 am

    Ahh Bacon, the king. I have had ‘facon’before.. fake bacon and it wasn’t half bad! Thanks Katie x

  • Reply Katie October 8, 2014 at 9:48 am

    Ooo that looks delicious! I rarely cook with chorizo but I’ll have to go this one a go. Bacon is by far my favourite deli meat – or any kind of meat. Closely followed by chorizo.
