Baked sweet potatoes are an excellent ingredient for the basis of many vegan dishes. They're incredibly healthy, satisfy the appetite, and can be combined with a whole host of different flavours. In this recipe, I've combined the aromas of chimichurri with baked chickpeas to create a unique and flavourful filling. The chimichurri dressing itself can be used for anything and everything, so it's a great all-rounder in the kitchen! Together with the baked chickpeas, it contrasts wonderfully with the sweet potatoes and lends the dish a hearty note. Garnish the dish with fresh bell pepper and avocado, and you've got a simple, satisfying meal.
