Baked Sweet Potato with Mushroom Cauliflower Puree

As messy and strange as this dish looks, it was one of the tastiest

"Cheesy" Mushroom Cauliflower Puree: In a food processor, I blended 
together 1.5 Tbsp light cream cheese, 1.5 Tbsp lemon juice, 1 Tbsp nutritional 
yeast, 2 tsp dijon mustard, 1 clove garlic, 1 tsp dried dill and 1/4 tsp chili powder

Then added 3/4 cup cauliflower (chopped and 
cooked) and 2 large shiitake mushrooms (cooked)

Blend on high until pureed

Then I added my Mushroom Cauliflower Puree with 1/2 cup
cooked organic lean ground beef and 1/8 cup diced red onion

Mixed together

At the last minute, I tossed in 1 cup spinach (chopped and lightly cooked)

Added a pinch of black pepper before mixing together one last time 

In the meantime, I had 1 large Purple Sweet Potato  
baking in the oven for about 1 hour @ 400 Fahrenheit 

When the potato was done I stuffed it with the puree

Full of flavour and extremely comforting. The sweetness of the sweet 
potato really pairs well with the savory mushroom cauliflower puree
