A quick simple microwave meal. This has become one of my favorite dishes. Sometimes I use a yam instead. A quick simple microwave meal. This has become one of my favorite dishes. Sometimes I use a yam instead.

    Very Good
    Super yum, the commenter who added cumin to the beans was dead on as well - if you're not in a mad hurry, saute some onions and peppers to top as well, they're a good addition to this combo. - 5/29/12

    Simple, satisfying, and delicious. Perfect post-gym dinner, and even my husband liked it. Served with a salad. - 2/7/11

    This was delish! I was doing this as a quick breakfast from memory. I forgot the corn, and added some cumin to the black beans. Yumm! It will probably be even better with the corn! I didn't used to like sweet potatoes much, but I love them this way! This will be a regular meal for me. Thanks! - 3/26/09

    This makes a really satisfying and tasty meal. I cut my sweet potatoes in quarters and cooked in a covered glass microwave bowl with about 2 tablespoons water. Used frozen corn. Good recipe for storing individual servings to reheat. Great combination of flavors and textures! - 11/23/08

    Sounds good! Can't wait to try it!
    I cook my own black beans from dry, then freeze in batches. I will use frozen corn also! We have a TON of sweet potatoes from DH's garden, so this will be a great help, (esp. since our stove quit the other day)!!! Thanks!!
