Steps

  1. Place rack in the middle of the oven. Preheat oven to 200℃ (400F).

  2. Pierce sweet potatoes with a fork. Place sweet potatoes, cut side down, on a parchment-covered baking sheet. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, until tender. Set aside to cool.

  3. In a pan over medium-high heat, sauté onion and garlic in oil. Add tempeh and cook until it starts to caramelize, about 4 minutes. Add tamari sauce and cranberries and continue to cook for a minute. Set aside.

  4. Remove some flesh from each sweet potato with a fork. Divide stuffing among sweet potato halves. Garnish with avocado slices.

  5. Bring all ingredients to a boil in a pan, whisking. Simmer gently for 2 or 3 minutes or until sauce thickens.

  6. Serve stuffed potatoes with sauce. Add a few leaves of fresh coriander as a garnish if you wish.
