  1. For Sweet Potatoes:
  2. 1. Preheat oven to 400. On a baking sheet, bake the sweet potatoes, whole, for about 30 minutes, or until soft enough to easily pierce the flesh with a fork. Cut potatoes in half, length-wise, and let cool slightly.
  3. 2. Over medium heat, sautee onions in coconut oil with a sprinkle of salt. When they are translucent, add garlic, stirring, then kale. Cook for a minute or two, stirring frequently, until kale is just softened, but not browned. Set aside in bowl.
  4. 3. Using a spoon, scoop the flesh of the potatoes, leaving enough for the skin to hold it's adorable boat-shape (you don't want limp, floppy, boats). Put the scooped flesh into the bowl with the kale. To that mixture, add sunflower seeds and raisons. Mix thoroughly, and add salt to taste.
  5. 4. Refill the sweet potato skins with the kale mixture. Bake for another 20 minutes, or until lightly golden. Top with beans, tahini sauce, and pickled cabbage.
  6. For Pickled Cabbage:
  7. 1. Place thinly sliced cabbage in a heat-safe bowl.
