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...

So quick and yummy! I used whole coriander seeds and it was delicious


Good recipe. It only took a few minutes to make and it was really good and filling. I made one for my boyfriend too and he loved it.


This was by far the best recipe I have tasted yet from EatingWell, and I've tried many delicious ones. As everyone else mentioned, the combination of flavors was excellent, and this dish, together with a green salad, made for a light yet filling dinner.

The only things I changed were to substitute yogurt for sour cream, which worked just as well, and instead of microwaving or baking the potatoes, I started them in the microwave for about 9 minutes, then finished them off by baking, giving it a better crust.


Ive never even tried a sweet potato, but when I saw the picture if this recipe I just had to try it. It was very easy to make and the balance of flavors was perfect. Would be a great recipe for someone who wants a delicious meal, but doesn't have a lot of time!! I will definitely make this again VERY soon. ( My brother is a very finicky eater and he LOVED it. Cleaned his plate, and finished mine!!! )


Great Combination of ingredients, very yummy, I will defiantly make this again!
