How to Prepare Roasted Chickpea Stuffed Sweet Potatoes With Tahini Sauce [Vegan]

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F, and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Prick holes into the sweet potatoes with a fork. Place onto the prepared baking sheet and bake 40 minutes to 1 hour, until the center of the potatoes are soft when pricked with a knife. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the roasted chickpeas and creamy tahini dressing.
  4. To Make the Oven Roasted Chickpeas:
