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.

"This was quick, easy, and healthy; however, I was not overwhelmed with the flavors. I made it by the recipe, but did not have any coriander. I cooked my sweet potato in the microwave to save time and my potato was not as sweet as most I...

Quick, easy, and delicious

A great easy and filling meal. For even easier black bean filing heat drained beans in skillet on medium high for a few minutes and add a few tablespoons of your favorite tomato-based salsa. Stir and wait till just warmed through.

Jan '13 > For those resolving to eat (much) less meat (like me) w/o going into protein deprivation; make this and 'tweak it' to your heart's content, (I added a handful of chopped red onion to the (cast iron pan) veg combination) and enjoy!

Healthy, quick, yummy, vege-protein
Husband loved it!

We did not make our in the microwave. We baked the sweet potatoes in the oven. Also, I left out the sour cream and tomatoes (my husband's request). Moreover, it was a wonderful alternative to a meat based meal. Did not leave us hungry!

Easy to make, tasted great, and fairly inexpensive.
Quick and Easy Dinner in the microwave

It was very delicious I did not have enough time to make it in the oven so I did it in the microwave..I will try again in the oven and im sure it will be even better

I love the Black Bean Salad

I made this tonight and it was delicious! I added a little onion and just a dash of cinnamon like someone else suggested. My son and I loved it. My husband however, didn't like it. He ate two of them because he was hungry, so he must have not disliked it THAT much. I should have known, this is a man that doesn't like sweet potatoes. I will definately make it again for my son and I.
