  • 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.

  • 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.

Incredibly good. Way better than I thought it would be. Perfect combo of flavors and fairly simple to make. I baked the yams rather than micowaved. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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