Black Beans and Sweet Potatoes

Wednesday, January 9, 2013

I bought a few sweet potatoes the other day and had planned on making them into oven fries...but that didn't happen. So I took to Pinterest and google to figure out what was for dinner tonight. I came upon this recipe as inspiration.

Didn't it turn out pretty??

Here is how I made it....let's call it Black Beans and Sweet Taters

- 4 medium sweet potatoes
- 1 15-oz can black beans, rinsed
- 1/2 14-oz can diced tomatoes, rinsed
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 1 tsp ground coriander
- 1 tsp salt
- sour cream (garnish)
- chopped fresh cilantro (garnish)
- fresh lime juice (garnish)

1. Microwave on high until tender all the way through (about 10 minutes). Remember to pierce with fork a few times!!
2. In a medium bowl combine beans, tomatoes, garlic, oil, cumin, coriander and salt. Microwave on high until heated through, about 4 minutes.
3. Cut each sweet potato in half, lengthwise. Top with bean mixture and garnish with a little fresh squeezed lime juice, a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of cilantro.

Super easy, super fast, super delicious and only 300 calories!!!! Enjoy!!
