Black-Bean Smothered Sweet Potatoes

Submitted by: ROBEKL01


Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    2 medium sweet potatoes
    1 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed
    1 medium tomato, diced
    1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
    1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
    1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    chopped fresh cilantro

Directions

1. Prick sweet potatoes with a fork in several places. Microwave on High until tender all the way to the center, 12 to 15 minutes. (Alternatively, place in a baking dish and bake at 425 F until tender all the way to the center, about 1 hour.)

2. Meanwhile, combine beans, tomato, oil, cumin, coriander and salt in a medium microwave-safe bowl; microwave on High until just heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. (Alternatively, heat in a small saucepan over medium heat.)

3. When just cool enough to handle, slash each sweet potato lengthwise, press open to make a well in the center and spoon the bean mixture into the well. Top each with a dollop of sour cream (optional), green salsa (optional), and a sprinkle of cilantro.

  • Delicious - I added some yellow pepper to the bean mixture and used nonfat yogurt instead of sour cream. - 10/17/11
