Bougie Grubs Honey-Drizzled Sweet Potato Boats


  • 2 large sweet potatoes, halved
  • A handful of fresh spinach
  • 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup of blue cheese, crumbled
  • 1/4 cup of shelled pistachios, crushed
  • Honey for drizzling
  • Fresh basil, finely chopped, for garnish


  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
  2. Bake Sweet Potatoes: Place the sweet potato halves on a baking sheet and cut side up. Bake until they are tender and start to caramelize, usually around 25-30 minutes, depending on the size.
  3. Wilt Spinach: A few minutes before the sweet potatoes are done, add the spinach to the baking sheet to wilt it slightly.
  4. Scoop and Mash: Once the sweet potatoes are baked, remove them from the oven. Let them cool for a minute, then scoop out a small amount from the center of each half to create a "boat." Be careful to leave the skin intact. Mash the scooped-out sweet potato flesh in a bowl with a bit of butter until smooth. Fold the wilted spinach into the mixture.
  5. Fill Sweet Potato Boats: Fill the sweet potato boats with the spinach and potato mixture. Sprinkle the blue cheese evenly over the tops of the filled sweet potato halves.
  6. Melt Cheese: Return the sweet potato boats to the oven for a few more minutes until the cheese starts to melt.
  7. Add Toppings: Remove the sweet potato boats from the oven. Immediately sprinkle with crushed pistachios, drizzle generously with honey, and garnish with fresh basil.
  8. Serve: Serve warm as a delightful side dish or a vegetarian main course.
