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.

Great for those of us on the go

This was a good meal for me and my wife -- quick prep time and ingredients that are readily available in our house. We had to ditch the cumin as the kids found the recipe as-is a bit too spicy. That said, this is something we'd do again, along with a protein-based entrée so we have more energy for play at the park!

Simple ingredients, quick prep time

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 have had. I don't know it that was because I cooked it in microwave or not. If I try this recipe again I would add the cinnamon and possibly onions suggested by others. I don't know how motivated I am to try it again though.

I've always had my sweet potatoes with butter and brown sugar. I wasn't sure how this savory middle eastern flavor would mix with a sweet potato, but I had to try it. I was completely won over at the first bite! These are wonderful. So flavorful, filling and packed full of nutrients, how can you go wrong? I used canned tomatoes instead of fresh and added a dash of cinnamon, which I highly recommend. Not only did the cinnamon compliment the other spices, but it also really brought out the flavor of the sweet potato.
