For a satisfying last-minute supper, it's hard to beat a sweet potato zapped in the microwave. The fragrant filling of beans and tomatoes adds protein. Be sure to eat the skin, which is full of fiber, as well.

"Amazing! I agree with several other comments - this is going to be a new staple for me! A very filling and nutritional meal. Followed the recipe to the letter - at first I thought the corriander & cumin amounts may be too much, but it...

Yummm. I plan to keep some sweet potatoes on hand and have some of the bean and tomato salad pre-made in the fridge every week because this is something I know I'll eat with regularity. Amazing what a little cumin and coriander can do!


Super super yummy! Made these today for lunch and added a couple cubed white mushroomsin with the bean mixture. After putting the sour cream on, I tossed a bit of diced jalapeno and they were super delicous! I will defnilty be making this again! I just Love love love love this site!


Very good - the "salsa" was unexpected on the sweet potato, but delicious - everyone in my family enjoyed it (even my 3yo!!!). I used kidney beans (no black beans) and omitted the cilantro, but it was still delicious. I had the whole thing ready in less than 10 minutes. Hard to believe something this good could be ready this fast. It will be hard NOT to make this a new weekly staple. :)


A definite 5-star meal here. I've rarely tasted something with such sparkle that is so easy to make.

I wrote about it in my food blog, called "Eating the Rainbow". Hope you enjoy it:


WOW! This was so delicious! Something this healthy should not taste this good! I had added a 10 ounce can of corn (drained and rinsed) to the mix and i used regular sour cream instead of low fat. But even with that its still a very healthy meal. My biggest surprise with this dish was how sweet it actually was. The company that i shared this meal with had asked if i put butter on the potatoes to which i happily replied "nope" to.

This is a must try! And a keeper for sure! Can't wait to make it again next week!
