Vegan Loaded Sweet Potato

A few days ago I found out that bacon bits are vegan. YES YOU READ THAT RIGHT: BACON BITS ARE VEGAN. (At least most brands are but always check the ingredients to be sure.) So I bought some and got down to business making a loaded sweet potato, and holy crap it is so good. The ultimate fall comfort food: warm, filling, cheesy, sweet, and salty. Oh, and super quick and easy to make. Start by baking your sweet potato as you would a normal potato- stab it a few times and throw it in the microwave for 8 to 12 minutes, depending on the size of the potato and microwave wattage. Then, cut it in half and place a couple of Daiya cheddar slices on each side and let them melt. You can throw it back in the microwave for a few seconds or press the potato sides back together to help the cheese melt faster.

Top with avocado, red onion, bacon bits, and chives. My chives came from my cute little plant growing in my kitchen, who seems to be the only plant in my apartment that I haven’t killed. 

And voilá! You’re ready to eat.
