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.

So from now on, all the recipes on TVA will all be healthy & glowing recipes! I might create the odd healthy…

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.
