Instructions:

Sweet Potatoes and Stuffing

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

2. Place the sweet potatoes in the preheated oven and bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until they are soft.

3. Meanwhile, add the oil to a large skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Add the onion and mushrooms and sauté for 10 minutes. Add seitan, cumin, onion powder, salt, and pepper and cook for another 5 minutes. Set aside.

4. Cut the top off the long side of the sweet potatoes and scoop out the centers as best you can. Place the centers in a medium bowl. Add all but ⅓ cup of the seitan-mushroom mixture from the skillet into the bowl. Mix well. Stuff the sweet potato mixture back into the shells. Place back in the oven at 350°F to heat through for 15 minutes.

Tahini Sauce

5. During this time, mix all the tahini sauce ingredients together with 3 tablespoons water. Set aside.
