Sweet Potatoes with Warm Black Bean Salad

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...

Startlingly Rich!

While I would have liked some kind of treatment to the skin, the overall dish was fantastic. I used canned diced tomato instead of fresh but it made little difference. The richness of the potato with the beans and tomato really sang and has made this my new go-to quick dinner!

Wonderful texture, great flavor combinations, easy

Great!

I love this recipe and make it all the time. It's so easy to keep a few sweet potatoes, can of black beans, and a tomato on hand and then voila! I usually add minced fresh garlic with the beans mixture and more spices like paprika and red chile powder and skip the cilantro all together if I don't have it. Also topped with greek yogurt instead of the sour cream tastes just as delicious. Enjoy!

easy, can keep items on hand

Fast-easy-cheap-yummy!

I have made this about ten times now and never get tired of it. The Hubs hates cilantro so he just doesn't put it on. I had no idea how fast and easy nuking sweet potatoes is! The flavors are outstanding for such a simple meal. I use this as a meatless weekday meal. It's so low in calories you can add a tossed salad or do what I do and indulge in desert lol.

Just A Quick Question....?

I lost 35 lbs in 1 summer on the low carb (& tried to limit processed foods....hard to do when u have chronic pain!), anyway, I know there is a good way to do low carb & a bad way! But it is waaay confusing! The carb count in this recipe is very high for 1 serving. So r u saying its ok cuz it's not processed white sugar? That its natural, healthy, when its a veg? Cuz I was told not to eat the starchy veggies, or at least limit them... Once again, CONFUSING! Thnx for ur time, hope to hear an answer soon! ")
