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.

I really like this recipe and have made several variations since I made it for dinner! Including baked sweet potatoes with cottage cheese and leftover Arrabiatta sauce (it was all we had in the fridge and it was good)! But, my husband has trouble thinking of sweet potatoes as a sub for white potatoes... That being said, he ate all of his dinner!

I made this recipe one night when I had extra sweet potatoes in my pantry. I always have black beans on hand and decided that it would be a good way to help use them both. My boyfriend is an extremely picky-eater so I knew trying this recipe would be a risk. However, I made it using the cinnamon to compliment the sweetness of the potato and it became an instant hit. I cannot imagine making this without the cinnamon and the great news is: I'll be making it tonight BY REQUEST from the picky eater! If i could issue a tip - Taste as you go. I use more cinnamon than cumin and definately add a lot. This is a recipe, in my opinion, that is more about the texture than the precision.

I tweaked it a bit too - I sauteed finely chopped onion and crushed red pepper in oil, added the rest of the ingredients as directed, and squeezed a whole lime into it as well. I liked the heat and citrusy zest it added.

So, so good!
