One of the easiest dinner recipes ever!

One of the easiest dinner recipes ever! And it is filling and comforting!

Hello everyone,

It has definitely turned into Fall in Southern California, and the temperature has started dropping in the evenings.  I am craving nothing but warm, comfort foods for dinner and this is one of our favorites.  I am not sure that there are many healthy, dinner recipes out there that are this easy.

Baked Stuffed Sweet Potato (serves 2)

Ingredients:

*2 medium-sized sweet potatoes

*3/4 can of black beans

*Your choice of veggies (we prefer cherry tomatoes, carrots, spinach, bell pepper, zucchini, red onion)

*Optional: salsa, guacamole or vegan butter

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Poke holes in your sweet potatoes with a fork.
  3. Cook sweet potatoes until they are soft, all the way through (approximately 45 minutes).
  4. In the meantime, chop and saute your vegetables and black beans.
  5. When the sweet potatoes have finished cooking, pull them out of the oven.  Slice them open (length wise) and mash the insides with a fork.
  6. Add your veggies, black beans, salsa and guacamole.
  7. Enjoy!

*I will sometimes add guacamole, salsa or vegan butter to the sweet potato before piling on my veggies.  This helps take away from the dryness of the sweet potato.
