Buffalo Jackfruit Stuffed Sweet Potato

I love this buffalo jackfruit stuffed sweet potato recipe because its so simple to make and it tastes amazing! It takes around 10-15 minutes to make and is made with only healthy whole-food & plant-based ingredients. With the minimal ingredients I used, it cost me next to nothing to make, so if you’re on a budget then this is one for you. On a side note, I have decided that I want The Vegan Afterglow to focus more on plants rather than processed food. As well as being oil free, low sugar, budget friendly & easy to prepare. So from now on, all the recipes on TVA will all be healthy & glowing recipes! I might create the odd healthy…

But first, Christmas is on the way, and since so many people have made the transition to veganism this year (2018 has been the year of veganism after all), it’s only natural that people will be on the look out for vegan Christmas presents.

And veganism is commonly known for being expensive, but that’s just not the case. I’m a frugal gal who loves cooking and eating, but you won’t catch me spending a ton of money on my shopping bill every week. Why? Because vegetables, leafy greens, legumes (beans, lentils, peas), rice, tofu, potatoes, bread & most fruit are cheap as f**k and that’s what I eat every day. I like to try & keep my meals as plant-based as possible because its cheaper, but I do treat myself to the odd meat-substitute, and even then, spending £1.50 for 8 meat-free burgers isn’t going…
