Ingredients

4 sweet potatoes
1 large leek, washed trimmed and sliced
1 cup diced eggplant
2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive or coconut oil
1/3 cup dry white wine
fresh goat cheese {optional}
sea salt and coarse ground pepper


Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.


Pierce each sweet potato several times with the tines of a fork. Place the sweet potatoes directly on the oven rack, on the rack below place a cookie sheet lined with foil to catch any drips {do not wrap your potatoes in foil}. Bake until tender; about 45 minutes. They are done when a knife slides easily in and out.


While the sweet potatoes are baking you can prepare your vegetable topping. In a sauté pan heat the oil on low. Then toss in the sliced leeks and cook for about 5 to 10 minutes. As they start to brown, turn the heat up to medium-low and add in your eggplant. Cook for another 2 to 3 minutes and then add in your white wine. Stir and scrape all the yummy brown bits off the bottom of the pan; flavor with a taste of sea salt and pepper and you’re done!


Take the sweet potatoes out of the oven and make a slit in the top. Top with the leek and eggplant mixture and add a sprinkle of fresh goat cheese. Serve warm and right away. So yum!
