A FEW MORE NOTES
Can you devour candy potato skin?

Yes! Sweet potato pores and dermis is a nice supply of fibre and potassium. Just make certain to clean the potatoes nicely earlier than cooking because the skins are typically protected in dirt.
How lengthy do those keep?

The potatoes and chickpea filling want to preserve a minimum of 4 days. The avocado tahini may leap to turn brown although as avocado doesn’t final lengthy as soon as it’s been uncovered to air – which will preserve about 2-3 days.
Poke Holes

I already stated this above but I’ll say it once more – make certain to poke a number of holes all round the candy potato earlier than baking. If you don’t enable the steam to flee the candy potato will doubtless be too mushy at the internal and dry at the outside.
I wish you take pleasure in those as a lot as I do! If you attempt it let me recognize what you assume within the comments!
