Sweet Potato, Spicy Black Beans & Guacamole

This is a great mid-week meal as it's easy, healthy and delicious. You can cheat all the way with this recipe by buying ready-made refried beans and guacamole so it can be even quicker and easier. If you do the full version, it's still simple and the combination of flavours is amazing! 

Ingredients: 

  • 2 medium-sized sweet potatoes

Bean mix (for a really quick meal, buy pre-cooked refried beans)

  • 1 tin (400g) black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tsp brown sugar or vegan syrup (eg agave or maple etc)

Guacamole (for a really quick meal, buy pre-prepared guacamole or a plain avocado)

  • 2 small ripe avocados
  • 1 red chilli, de-seeded and finely diced
  • ½ red onion, finely diced
  • Bunch of fresh coriander, roughly chopped including stalks
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Pinch of salt

Serving suggestions: fresh chilli, fresh coriander, vegan sour cream, nachos, salsa, grated vegan cheese, lime 

 

Method: 

  1. Preheat the oven to 180º/350ºF/Gas Mark 4. 
  2. Stab the potatoes a couple times with a fork and then pop them in the oven for around 45 mins or until soft in the middle. 

Spicy bean mix

  1. Heat a little oil in a small saucepan on a medium heat and add the spices. Lightly fry for 30 seconds - 1 minute and then add the black beans.
  2. Cook the beans for around 5 minutes, stirring throughout.
  3. Add the lime juice and sugar, then cook for a further couple of minutes.

Guacamole 

  1. Mash the avocado to the consistency of your choice.
  2. Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl and season to taste.
