  • 1 cup canned black beans, rinsed
  • ¼ cup hummus
  • 2 tablespoons water


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Prick sweet potato all over with a fork. Microwave on High until cooked through, 7 to 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, wash kale and drain, allowing water to cling to the leaves. Place in a medium saucepan; cover and cook over medium-high heat, stirring once or twice, until wilted. Add beans; add a tablespoon or two of water if the pot is dry. Continue cooking, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is steaming hot, 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Split the sweet potato open and top with the kale and bean mixture. Combine hummus and 2 tablespoons water in a small dish. Add additional water as needed to reach desired consistency. Drizzle the hummus dressing over the stuffed sweet potato.

This recipe was as bland and it sounds, and awkward to eat. I added a little garlic, salt, and pepper to the beans and kale. I will try the combination again over mashed sweet potatoes with extra flavor boosters.

I never would have thought this would have been so good, but I trusted the other reviews and sure enough- it's delicious. I especially like how it has so few ingredients. It's definitely a clean eating recipe.

I was very skeptical when I read this recipe but decided to try it anyway because of the positive reviews. This was delicious and very filling. I substituted spinach for kale but other than followed the recipe as written. I will be adding this into my lunch rotation from now on.

Great! It is actually made with a yam not a sweet potato. But. Think most of us grew up thinking yams were sweet potatoes

This was as one reviewer said even better then expected. I had great sweet potatoes-they are called Garnets and they are so good. I had some left over black beans and newly steamed beet greens so I did use those. I cut back amounts to keep calories a bit better--more like 225 for entire amount. I did use an Oasis roasted red pepper hummus that has 28 calories per serving and it was just perfect on this. I didn't add water to it, but will try that next time. Could eat this everyday! Thank you.
