Sweet Potatoes Stuffed Cajun-Style



4 servings



4 sweet potatoes (1/2 - 3/4 lb. each)
1/2 cup onions, finely chopped
1 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 cup celery, deveined and finely chopped
1 lg. fresh tomato, peeled and finely diced
1/2 cup cooked okra, finely chopped
1 tbsp. salt-free Cajun spice (more if you like)


Preheat oven to 400°F. Scrub sweet potatoes, dry, and set on a cookie sheet. Bake for about an hour. Meanwhile, in a skillet, saute onions in oil. When soft, add celery, cover, reduce heat, and steam (add a few spoons of hot water if needed). Add tomatoes, okra, and seasonings. Mix well. When sweet potatoes are done, remove from oven, slice off a top layer, and remove pulp from shells. Place pulp in a bowl, blend well with Cajun-style filling and stuff shells with mixture. Return to oven and heat until warm.
