Super easy and tasty ~ like another reader, I add onions and garlic and throw in some tumeric. Good times in the mouth!
Black Bean-Smothered Sweet Potatoes
For a quick and satisfying last-minute supper, it's hard to beat a sweet potato zapped in the microwave. The fragrant filling of beans and tomato adds protein, making it a nutritionally complete entree. Be sure to eat the potato skin; it's full of fiber.

The preparation of this dish couldn't be simpler. It was yummy and satisfying. However, my husband didn't like the unfamiliar combination of beans on a sweet potato. He liked the beans, but next time he wants them on the side.
I wasn't sure about this recipe when my husband suggested it, it seemed like an odd combination. I loved it! I was surprised at how well the ingredients go together. I used roasted coriander because it was what I had on hand. It was delicious! I followed the directions completely, except for using the roasted coriander. I will be making this again!
I make this once a week, but I just add a bit of my favorite salsa to a can of black beans instead of adding the seasoning. It's so good. I actually thing the sweet potato is best for this because it almost creates a buttery taste when paired with the spices of the topping. I'm sure it would taste great with a regular potato, as well.
