Now that it's a bit colder, I find myself reaching for soups and stuffed potatoes instead of salads and wraps.  There is just something more comforting about a heartier lunch when it's chilly outside.  This simple stuffed sweet potato is packed with flavor and nutrition from quickly sauteed kale, garlic, onions, and chickpeas.  Then everything is topped with a creamy sesame sauce made with tahini and lemon juice.  It's easy to make ahead of time if you need to pack your lunch.  Just bake (or microwave) the potatoes, saute the kale and chickpeas, and whisk together the sauce.  Then pack each item separately and assemble at work.
