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...

Delicious and easy. I served with a small house salad and it was the perfect weeknight meal. The whole thing took ten minutes start to finish. This would also make an easy lunch.


This was delicious! I loved it. My boyfriend liked it too. He said it was interesting but really good. I thought it was fantastic! PLUS, it's super filling for those of us trying to count our calories.


I used curry powder instead of cardamon and 1/3 of a can of tomatoes instead of fresh. It was really tasty. My son had some of the leftover bean mixture pureed and used it as a dip for corn chips.
I'm glad I have some leftovers for tonight!


This was so yummy and easy. I peeled, cubed and boiled my sweet potato instead of nuking it, then just put everything in a pan, except the sour cream, to heat together. My one year old thought it was pretty good too and the cubed pieces made it easier to eat without too much of a mess. I will make this again,and if I have time, roasting the sweet potato in the oven would probably make it tastier.


I haven't had roasted sweetpotatoe before, It's nice. A lot like roasted butternut squash. I did mine in the oven which I think made it especially nice, wouldn't use the microwave.
