Baked Sweet Potatoes with Tatsoi Pesto

Baked Sweet Potatoes with Tatsoi Pesto: Jessi's Kitchen

These Baked Sweet Potatoes with Tatsoi Pesto is my final recipe for our Bloomsbury Farm CSA recipe cards. It has been such a fun season and I have loved creating recipes for my favorite farm.

We received a large bunch of Tatsoi in our last basket and I thought it would be really fun to create a recipe with it. It is a super delicious green that is pretty similar to spinach except that it has a little bit more flavor. It is definitely one of my favorite greens and it makes the perfect pesto. This makes about two cups worth of pesto so we used this stuff on the baked sweet potatoes and also in soup, eggs, pasta…..the options are basically endless.

If you can’t find any Tatsoi at your local market then feel free to replace it with any of your favorite seasonal greens. Also – if you live in the Middle TN area make sure to sign up for the Bloomsbury Farm Fall CSA. It is probably my favorite produce season and I have lots of fun recipes planned.

Enjoy!
